Bacilius
    #2744080 - 05/29/04 01:02 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

A couple of grain jars that I have Have very minor spots of bacilius. will it be ok to use, or do I have to toss them. From What I remember the myc can fight the bacilius, but the problem is quite small. Out of an entire QT jar, a spot the sice of a dime. And its not slimy or anythind, the grains just not colonized and eache kernal has that wet ring around it. I think itl be fine as I have used em in the past, just throwin it out there to c if anyone else has any ideas. Peace!!!

Many people have worked with small degrees of Bacillus contamination successfully. The problem is that usually it doesn't remain 'small'. And you may not know what's going on in the core of the jar.
If you've used such jars successfully in the past, odds are it will continue to work. I'd really try investigating where it is coming from though, and try to take a few steps to prevent even a little bit of Bacillus from making its way into the process.

Yeah, steeping for 24hrs is definatly on my to change list. Currently I use the steeping at 170f for 1 hour. It works great for water content, but seems it doesnt let the baciluis spores germinate so the can be killed during sterilization. Damn spores that dont die at 250f. Thanks for the info man. Peace!!!!!
