Questions about grain
    #3290143 - 10/28/04 05:55 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

1) Is rye grain the best substrate to grow on for casings in terms of speedy colonization and ease of manipulation?
2) Do I need to be sure to go to an organics food store to get this? 3) Are there dangers of me getting the wrong kind with additives/preservatives?
4) How much does it usually run? (I need about 12 quarts of it.)
5) Do I need to add nething for the PH via lime or oyster shells?
6) Is a PC absolutely necessary? I'm willing to take the extra time steam sterilizing if it's possible, but I heard that the boiling point of water, 212 or whatever it is, isn't high enough to sterilize whole grains.

1) I think so. Others argue WBS. They're about the same.
2) You can get it at a hardware store, health food store, or really cheap from myco supply.
3) Just get rye berries.
4) Eh, depends where you got it. I got 50 lbs for around $50 from myco supply. That's mad cheap.
5) No.
6) Yes you need one. You can't steam sterilize grain if you want to be as close to 100% sterile as possible.

Everything I say on this board is a lie.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.
