Popcorn Jars and white goo
    #3076036 - 09/01/04 12:40 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I did popcorn/Grain for the first time last week. Well, it's been a week. The day after I inculated there where a few little puddles at the bottom. And since then it's kinda formed like white puddles at the bottom, I shook them thinking it was myc, but I think it is residue from the corn.

So, has anyone else had a problem like this, or is this normal? What did I do...should I put corn on a paper towel next time?

I'm almost having to go back to another round of cakes so I can have some more around. Not a bad thing. It is fun messing with cakes...I guess I won't be saying that after I get grains and the casings working.

Are casings made with PF cakes still ok?

I was thinking maybe a bacterial contam, but it might be starchy runoff from the grains. How did you prep the grains?

To wet dude ...use a cardboard top lined with newspaper to soak up the excess water...

first off, contamed or not, i would trash the jars, as the extra moisture will more then likely contam later, if not sooner ..secondly i would take a CLEAN bathtowel and hand dry the corn AFTER  you let it sit in the strainer..then pc it......

Thanks for the reply everyone.

I thought it might have been too wet. It was about 11:30 pm when I started PCing and I was tired. I knew I rushed it, but took the chance.

So, you suggest newspaper on top or carboard?...would paper towels on top of C-board work? I'm supersticous about the newspaper...

EDIT:
Oh yeah. i preped the grains as normal. Hm.
24 hours soak. Then a boil to simmer for about45-60 mins. THen drain and PC.

One added note, That time I used PF jar lids that I had in the past. THey had the four holes and i ust filled them with poly fil. I will go with the on big hole with polyfil next time.

can you put a little verm in the bottom of the jars before you pc to soak up excess water? cause i was thinking of doing popcorn myself in a month or so.

edit: nm it would make a mess when you shook it.
