1st run for popcorn
    #3281287 - 10/26/04 09:52 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

My friend told me what he did with popcorn and he was wondering if it sounds like it is going to turn out good. First he soaked the popcorn for about 30 hrs. then the popcorn was rinsed with cold water and added to a pot and simmered for about 40 min. He waited untill the kernels were soft enough to break with a squeeze of the fingers. After the simmering, the popcorn was rinsed again and left to drip in a collindar for about an hour. Then he loaded the jars.

He added a little verm just in case there was a little excess moisture in the popcorn.

The jars were covered by a polyfil lid and a tyvek filter.



The jars were then shook furiously so that the verm was distrubuted evenly amongst the popcorn.

He has no idea what he is going to do with them when they are ready (ic. case, bulk, etc.) He is just crossing his fingers hoping that they dont get any contams. Any suggestions, things that he did wrong would greatly be appreciated... thanks in advance

Houston, weve got a problem. My friend called me this morning in shock. He woke up and checked on his jars, they look good by the way. He planned to inoculate them tonight. This is where we got the problem. He pressure cooked his syringes and then used a common syringe tek that he has used with new syringes quite frequently. However, this is the first time with syringes that have been pressure cooked. When he checked them, he found that 7ccs of liquid had been lost. Somehow it leaked out through the night. He now only has 3 cc's in each syringe. A total of 9 cc's. While the remaining is extremely dark, it will have to do. But does anyone know what happened? Has this ever happened to anyone before???
