boil them and the seed to water ratio does not matter cause the seed has all the water it can handle.

The amount of water you need to perfectly saturate the grain varies with the grain.  Some will be drier and require more water, others will be more moist.  It will also vary from batch to batch within the same brand.  This is why you see the discrepancy in the amount of water each recipe requires.

To get around this problem, put the grain/birdseed/whatever into a large pot.  Completely submerge the grain with plenty of extra water.  Simmer (and I do mean simmer, not boil.  It should just barely bubble.  Any more and you increase the number of exploded grains, which is bad.  Once you have the water at a bare simmer, leave it for an hour, then turn off the heat and let it soak for 24 hours.  Yes, I simmer then soak.  Simmering first softens the grain so that the soak is more effective.

Now, the inside of the grain is perfectly saturated.  The next thing you have to do now is rinse very, very well to remove carbohydrates from the surface of the grain.  Carbohydrates become sticky during pressure cooking and prevents effective shaking later.

Finally, you need to get rid of the excess water on the outside of the grain by draining very, very well in a strainer or similar.  Let it drip out for at least 30 minutes or more.  If you don't drain well, you'll end up with too much water in your jar which increases your risk of contamination and impedes the growth of the mycelium.

At this point, you should have perfectly moistened grain without having to follow a recipe that may call for too much or too little water for your particular grain.

Hope this makes sense, and good luck!  :mushroom2:
