Afoaf pced some corn and it is mostly exploded. Is it worth while to inoculate or not? Thanks!

Mostly exploded? No that's no good, you're going to have to try again. How long and at what pressure did you PC?

About an hour at 18 psi. AFOAF lives at a higher altitude so its necessary to bump up the psi's to get the proper temps...but perhaps longer at lower temps would be better? His PC is an older model Presto so he's not sure the pressure gauge works accurately? Any idea on how to check this?

you exploded your corn? did you soak overnite, then drain for a half hour?
think about turning down the stove to get to 15 psi for an hour.
had no trouble with popcorn this time around, it was my first and only time with it. if you soak for 12 hours, drain for a half hour until you can shake the popcorn and not a drop falls, then PC it for an hour at 15 psi you should have no trouble.
by the way i use the expensive Orville redenbacker popcorn since i couldn't find the cheap shit. should be all the same though.

Yeah, maybe I should explain explode better. The corn burst or split it didn't actually pop. AFOAF was attempting the popcorn method of skipping the presoak and simmer by pcing for one hour, drain, place in jars and pc again.
