Popcorn Questions
    #3174568 - 09/24/04 12:55 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I started soaking six pounds of yellow popcorn last night in a pot, and there was about an inch of water over the top of the popcorn when I went to bed. When I woke up this morning (this afternoon actually) the situation had reversed; there was about an inch of popcorn that had risen to the top, and underneath the water started.

I know the point of soaking popcorn for 24 hours is to release anything undesirable, but my water is still almost completely clear (though I did add fresh water when I woke up).

So if the popcorn continues to float up (I honestly don't feel like checking it every ten minutes for the next ten hours I have left) will that damage it in some way? And, at the end of the 24 hour period, if the water is still clear is that bad?

Thanks for all the help.

Anyone? My popcorn is almost done, so this is becoming a pressing matter.

Dude, don't worry. Just sitting in water for 24 hours is enough to germinate the endospores, I'm sure they don't have to sink to the bottom. And once you start to cook the popcorn the water color will change. Just make sure to boil for 45 minutes to an hour and then drain and load jars and PC. I have had great results with popcorn, I hope you do too.

Ok, this could get really fucked up.

A buddy of mine is staying with me (he knows I grow, so that's not a problem) but his girlfriend is going away for like two months in a few days. She surprised us here and is staying the weekend. There is no way she can know I grow, and I can't think of a really good explanation for why I'm pressure cooking eight quart jars of soaked popcorn.

So, can I leave the popcorn soaking for more than 24 hours? I don't think I can even drain and rinse it in front of her without her asking questions (she won't stop the whole fucking night).

Any ideas?

Can I suggest beating her over the head and then pressure cooking her for 45 min.s to an hour?!

Tell her it's none of her business and to find somewhere to go for a couple hours.

She'll never figure out why your pcing popcorn
it's just to obscure

good luck:0

Yeah, I've been thinking about it and she's not too bright. I'll figure out something to tell her.

I have the same problem when I go to Wal-Mart (I think the teller is somehow going to put together I'm growing mushrooms because I'm buying vermiculite, popcorn and Poly-Fil at the same time).

I wish psychedelic mushrooms were legal, because I would like to indulge in this amazing fruit of the earth. Unfortunately, I can only learn about this interesting hobby, and cultivate legal mushrooms.

In the tek he used white popcorn that came in two pound bags. I went to my local supermarket and they had yellow popcorn that came in two pound bags, so I bought that instead.

Seems to be working fine, according to these guys.

no, you can't use popcorn out of the bag with the butter and cheese on it. all the salt will keep the mcelium from colonizing the popcorn.

and be patient, that's what this hobby is about. chill out, smoke a bowl, whatever. just don't call us all "fucks" or i'm sure nobody will answer your questions.

i almost didn't.

Well two posts down it said two pound bags of white or yellow popcorn can be gotten at your local supermarket. Though it wasn't a direct answer to you, that should have answered your question as well. Try not to get pissed off on message boards, it doesn't get you anywhere.

Ive used yellow popcorn before and the myc growth seemed rather...slow, compared to results posted by others. 2 weeks till complete colonization, same as BRF for me. Incubated at 86'.
