Soaking question
    #2963531 - 08/04/04 10:56 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

hi all, i am new to the whole shroom and i do not have time to search, so sorry if this question has been answered (however i doubt it would have)

Situation: i have soaked the bird seed for 28'ish hours (i am well aware it is more than what would be desirable) i could not get home in time... i was also planing on picking up a pressure cooker tonight, however, that was not possible, so now i have 10 or so jars of extremely soaked bird seed that cannot be PC'ed for another 15 hours or so.... i currently have them in the fridge with tight lids on and little water (only what the grain can hold)

am i running an extreme risk of contam if i attempt to PC these tomorrow afternoon and begin cultivating the jars, or is it worth a shot?

i appologise if this post is particuly brief however i have little time in which to post, thanks ahead for the replys

Yes, you are running a high risk of bacterial contamination for sure, might already be there after a 28 hour soak. Seed isnt much, I would start again when you have everything to hand.

No you are not at risk of contams as you will be PCing anyway but you are at risk of have the WBS sprout which would then be garbage. Not to contradict you Loki longer soaks allow endospores to germinate which is a good thing but too long a soak will sprout things which is not a good thing. either way GL Lumocolor and Welcome to the Shroomery!!!

Grain is cheap...buy the pc then soak the grains.

Thank you for the warm welcome :-)

And also for the advice... It wasn't the price of the seed that troubled me, more the time factor, as i will not have enough time now to do it for another week or so :-P
But any way this is a great resource... Excellent job to the owners / creators of the site.
