BRF transfer to WBS, WBS drying out?
    #2684041 - 05/15/04 11:12 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

This is my first time working with WBS so these questions might sound silly to some but oh well.

I recently made some casings with BRF cakes and I used 2 cakes to transfer over to 4 quarts of WBS(1/2 cake for each quart). The WBS was soaked for 10 hours then was stained, drained, and PC'd for 1hour 45min. The tranfer went fine with no contams and the myc has recovered and started growing like mad. It has been one week and things are going fine but I think the jars look like they are drying out. They originally looked moist, never wet. Now it just looks dried out. When I shake the jars it sounds like I'm shaking around dry seeds. Anyone know if this is normal? And if not can I add moisture?
Thanks for any info!!!!!

I soak for 24 hours then simmer for 25 minutes (-- thanks to a magash post But you should atleast soak for 24 hours for a number of reasons :smile:

O.k. thanks but I had read that soaking for that long could cause the WBS to start fermenting. That's why I went with 10 hours.

So now that the 4 quarts are starting to dry out is there anyway to rehydrate them?
Or do they normally dry out a little?

If it stalls you can remove the uncolonised parts...I have even just chunked it all in a casing before

I'm not sure what you mean by this.......

I am just wondering if there is a way to rehydrate the WBS since it seems way too dry?

If you simmer for 30 minutes it works alot better.
The reason you soak for 24 hours is so that the bad things(endospores?)germinate,then we kill'em by pc'ing

Quite hard !

A way could be to transfer ur grains to a plastic bag with many little holes at the bottom and dunk it (with bleach or h2o2) in a container.
Drain well and then retransfer in a sterilized jar or bag.
Really hazardous coz great risk of contamination but u should be able to rehydrate it in this way .

Or maybe u could dunk directly ur jar if there are enough holes in the lid ...

Great, I figured it would be difficult. I am assuming that when I shake the jars it shouldn't sound like dry WBS shaking around inside. Well, I'll try and rehydrate before I give up on them. Thanks for the info.....
