Need advice for aeration of a 5 litre jug
    #2805092 - 06/18/04 12:10 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)


I got myself 2 massive 5 litre glass jars which are sealable with glass lids and a rubber ring in between.... I filled each up with 3kg of rye which is just bathing in warm water to germinate spores prior to sterilization... ok.... since these jars dont fint into my pressure cooker I was thinking of putting them in large water filled pans and then simply boit everything for like an hour... then I`d just open the lid a little to squirt spores in....

The problem is, that the fungus and seeds need to be aerated during colonization.... right? how should I do that? should I just leave the glass lid and cover it up with like 3 layers of cloth? or open the jar once a day? maby just seal it without the rubber ring? (which lets at least water through...)

Help would be greatly apreciated... :smile:

You can not sterilize rye by simple boiling, it needs to be either pressure cooked, or fractionally sterilized:
