poll, Do you soak or precook grains?
    #2642007 - 05/05/04 04:37 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Vote now!... well if you use grains.


I recently went to precooking my grain since its much faster and i done need to plan ahead as much. Also, i hate the smell of fermented grains. I noticed the grain is more mushy when precooked, so im guessing it holds more moisture which should equate to larger flushes.
Do you soak or precook grains?
You may choose only one
soak
precook

I prefer to soak. Soaking will germinate bacterial endospores and make them easier to kill. It is also a lot harder to get it wrong. I can soak my grain for 12-24 hours with no problems. Try cooking your grain for 5-10 minutes too long and you'll end up with a mess.

All I do is load my jars with the proper amount of grain and water, with a knife-tip of gypsom, and let that soak over night. Then I pressure cook them to sterilize. So easy.

easier said than done. this ratio can be difficult to perfect and can vary with ambient humidity/temps.

soaking, while time consuming, is an extremely easy way to practically insure proper water content (draining is important).

I am curious if people are presoaking straw or just immediately pasteurising it.

OH yea, it's a lot easier to soak 20-50 lbs of grain rather than cook it.

I have found that different batches of rye that I purchase from my local co-op hold different amounts of water,so this along with what debianlinux stated makes it difficult/or at the very least annoying sometimes.I soak overnight.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

I was a believer of this too, and thought it was an advantage . But since ive gone to preccoking ive seen no contams so i see no advantage in sterility issue. I have however noticed how its a bit more touchy how long they are pre cooked but i found it i just tastse test the grain (its not good but not bad) till its core is cooked and shoft but not too mushey, it comes out just perfect.

I soak for maybe an hour and then oven pasteurize.
