Problems with oats
    #25340079 - 07/22/18 08:14 AM (2 years, 9 months ago)

I’ve been growing for a year now pretty uneventfully. Oats have been working well for me, but for some reason the latest bag is giving me trouble. I took a few months off so might be operator error but I’m using the same process as my last bag of oats and they are getting slimy and won’t dry properly, if that makes sense. A bunch of jars got bacterial too - smelled like sourdough bread.

My usual process:
- dump oats with water to cover by a few inches.
- bring to boil
- test for doneness/full gelatinization.
- drain, allow to sit in colander or plastic bin
- jar
-PC 90 min at 15 psi

Any tips?

Are you sure they are getting dry enough before pc? I've lost a few that were too wet until I started getting the groove.

I rinse my oats a few times before soak/boiling. 

I also PC for a full 120 minutes.

Rinsing is a good suggestion. Also 120 min - my current presto can’t hold enough water to pc for 120 min without running dry. I have a larger AA on order so will see how that goes.

Thanks...

The seals and safety plug need to be changed on those Presto pressure cookers every so often.  They must be inspected prior to use.  It sounds like you need to read up on your PC's proper usage.

I replaced both last year, not sure how long they are (not) supposed to last. I follow Presto's instructions to a T.
