rye question...
    #3054755 - 08/26/04 08:20 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

#1 - is it important that the rye tek is done in quart jars, or can they be done with equal success in half/pints?

#2 - when innoculating, do you inject into only one place into the centre of the rye. I'm confused because in the BRF tek it says to inject onto the glass on all four side - why the difference?

thanks.... :syringe:

1. you can use any size jar, but the bigger the better (less work / yield) You want to leave about 1/3 the jar volume to be able to shake the rye berries before and during, and after colonization. half pinters would be lots of work. invest in some quart or even lager sized jars. Also note, that they need not be large mouth either.

2. innoculate in one place only and shake the berries to distribute the spores.

magash has a great post with tons of info regarding grain/rye. its definitely worth checking out

good luck

I think the answer to both questions is that when you use rye you need to leave enough empty space in the jar to be able to shake the jar up and thoroughly mix the contents around. This being the case you really cant get that much rye into a half pint and still leave room to shake it up so the only drawback is that you would have to make many half pints to catch up to quart jars in term of efficiency.

Since the shaking of the jars disperses the colonized grains throughout the jar and starts many inocculation points,there is no need to inject at more than one point initially. Just give the jar a good shake once you see a nice size patch of grain has become colonized. Then do it again when the jar is about half done and then wait for it to mend itself and finish colonizing. This process happens much faster than the pf style jars and I think you will be very pleased with the results.

Good Luck!

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
