Rye berries soaked... but not simmered -- Water:Rye Ratio
    #3013434 - 08/17/04 02:25 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I've never soaked my grain before unless it was overnight in the bottles with proportions already measured.  This time I soaked it all in a big kettle and I'm going to rinse and drain it a bit later.  I need to know the amount of water and grain to add to pint jars.  If I don't get much hard feedback I'll start out about 2/3 cup grain and 1/2 water and see how that works.  BTW does anyone know an online company that sells/ships vermiculite for a decent price.  Only one store sells the stuff locally and its 6$ for a small bag.  :tongue2:

I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

My friend has tried various grains and techniques over the years, including rye, and the only ways he gets consistantly good results is to give the grains a long soak in water (48 hours minimum), drain and load straight into jars - no simmering or added water. PC for 1 hour at 15 PSI.

Soaking is to get any contams to germinate before you PC, so that you can be sure nothing survives to mess up your grow. Simmering is to expanded the grain and increase its moisture content. Therefore, no extra water is added. The grain is already holding its max moisture.

I've only used grain a few times so far (following Magash's "simple grain tek") and this method works beautifully.

What's another 45 minutes spent to ensure an excellent grow?

Here's my method for rye berries. They're the best spawn medium in my opinion. http://www.mycotopia.net/cgi-bin/discus/show.cgi?tpc=2&post=242120#POST242120
