PC'ing at 240F
    #2296420 - 02/03/04 06:47 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I'm about to get at pc which can cook at 13 psi. Water boils at 240F at this pressure, but is this enough? And what about cooking times at this temperature, would an hour suffice?

Somebody got good experience with pcing at > 15 psi? Cooking in a normal pot gives me too many smelly jars.

1 hour at 13 psi is enough for pf cakes. For grain add some time.

Make sure you parboil your grain or soak it overnight. That will allow bacterial endospores to germinate and become susceptible to your slaughter.

I had a 8 QTPC that had no guage on it. I cooked grain for 1:30 while it was screaming. Really only had the odd contam and never lost whole batches. I would suggest holding off inoculation for a number of days to a week. This will allow jars to contam without you losing mycelium. The other option is to keep blanks, jars that you do not inoculate. Blanks are useful for checking sterilization. If a blank contaminates, you know that it was not sterilized properly and thus neither was the rest of your batch.

Hope this helps.
