pre-cooking rye grain?
    #3288236 - 10/28/04 07:57 AM (13 years, 27 days ago)

intentioned to use a 100% rye grain substrate (+water, of course), i found myself unsure whether to pre-cook the grains before the actual sterilization or not. while mushmush says it is unnecessary, a tek found on lycaeum bears the opposite opinion. this leads me to the conclusion that precooking is optional, BUT: if i put rye+water in jars without precooking the rye, will it grow in volume while sterilizing, thus pouring out of the jars and messing everything up???

You can put dry rye and the correct amount of water in..let them soak in their jars for 24 hours..then PC. Or you can soak them in a big pot for 24 hours..throw them on the stove and simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the grains start to split then remove from heat, strain rinse, let drip dry in the strainer and load them into jars then PC without adding more water to the jars. Either way works, both have their positives and negatives, depends and what you like. I've been soaking and simmering but my next batch I'm going to try without the simmer and see how it works out for me.
