pc'ing rye
    #3380271 - 11/18/04 05:49 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I just purchased a cheap pressure cooker by Mirro at Wal mart. It is a 4.2qt pc. It stands app. 6" tall and is 7 1/2"wide. It appears that I wont be able to sterilize many qt jars at a time. I was wondering if I could put my rey in some other container that would fit better in the pc and sterilize the rye that way and my jars seperate.

I am far from an expert but you should give them the last PC before incoluation IN the jars, IMHO.

Cause transporting rye through air to jars is big contam risks. Maybe it can be done in a glovebox, but I assume you dont hae a glovebox the size of half ur kitchen where your PC and 10 jars fit in.

Dont know how big ur hands are? :grin:

No Id say, final PC, PC the rye in the jars......

BUt Hey, who teh f am I ? :laugh:

that wouldnt be such a good idea. Thats the problem with those cheap pressure cookers. I'd take it back and get a large one.

I used to own a little one mirro 4.2 quart. I could sterilize 4 quart jars at once. I didnt find it to be too inconvient.

You could try autoclavable bags and fill the pc more. I'd recommend www.sporeworks.com/

once the bags are colonized, cut them open and dump them out into a tray. Add casing layer then fruit.

Use Pint jars(500ml).
Fill to the top with your simmered expanded rye, and pack it down, just a little. Add a verm top layer, just like if you where doing a cake. Top with your predrilled lid and cover with foil.
After PCing, innocculate (just like a cake) and incubate.
When the jar is fully colonized just break it apart to use as your spawn.

I only used quart jars when working with agar slices, wood chips/dowels, or G2G transfers.
