How long to PC?
    #2404624 - 03/04/04 11:32 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

What's a GOOD time to PC for and @ what PSI for birdseed? 45 min @ 15 PSI? I finally fixed my pressure cooker! No more guesstimating.

peace

I would normally do a 90 minute run but that was only because my PC would never maintain 15 PSI. It's gasket was old and worn out. Wouldn't this heat at this length burn my grain or worse, suck all the moisture out???

No, this guy I know just pc'ed his millet quarts for 90 minutes @ 15, and they turned out fine.

Do you think it would be better to PC at 90 minutes once ~or~ PC once @ 45 then wait a day and PC again @ 30 to allow bacteria and nastys that survived the first night a chance to grow?

Or will 90 just wipe out the whole fucking universe?

thanks

When the guy tried this (partial sterilization), his millet burst. But I would do a search and defer to those who have had more experience/success w/ this.

Cool, thanks Che_Night_Soil for the helpful help. My crazy neighbor's cousin will do it @ 90 minutes then.

I guess I meant fractional sterilization. Here's this just in case (I'm sure it applies to pc'ing as well). As an after thought, when the guy's millet burst, it had been soaked a little too long. Dunno. Either way, he has had zero problems with contamination after pc'ing for 90 minutes. Good luck :grin:.

I didn't know it was a bad thing if your millet bursted, I heard you just didn't want to overcook it.
Don't know if that is the same as bursting. My neighbor's crazy cousin usually soaked this batch for 26 hours with distilled water.

When the guy's millet burst, it tenaciously clumped together (even after shaking) and colonized more slowly. His millet had been soaking for 36 hrs, and he still isn't sure if this is why it burst. 90 min won't overcook your friend's seed, though. I'm kind of hoping someone who knows more about fractional sterilization will step in, although it's mainly just a means to guarantee grain sterilization w/out a pc (i.e., all endospores will be killed by 90 min @ 15 psi in a pc).

Clumping sucks.

So does the additional week+ it takes to colonize. Oh, well. Are you gonna use your seed as spawn?

Right to a casing. Hey, I was taking a shower, I left the pot on medium heat and it was @ 15 psi. 25 minutes later it was well over the 20 PSI marker, the needle all the way to the right, I turned it off to bring PSI back to 15, it's got 50 minutes left.

How do I know if I overdid the seed? Just explosion?
