The following was taken from our site

Preparation of rye grain spawn

We prepare rye grain spawn by combining equal volumes (1 cup) of rye grain and water in a jar. In our case this comes down to (roughly):

? 175 grams of rye
? 230 ml of water

We use 720 ml jars with metal lids. After the water and rye have been filled into the jars, the lids are put on but NOT screwed tight! The lids MUST remain loose! Then a double layer of tinfoil is crumpled over the lid and top part of the jar. Now the jars are ready for sterilisation

Sterilisation

The jars should be sterilised in a pressure cooker or autoclave, a normal pot will NOT suffice. First a layer of water is poured into the cooker. The jars are placed in the pressure cooker making sure that the lids are loose!

Now sterilise the jars for one hour according to the directions supplied with your pressure cooker. If you are using bigger jars then the sterilisation time should be prolonged. (we sterilise 1.5 litre jars and spawnbags always for 2 full hours). Once the cooker is no longer under pressure the jars should be taken out and the grain in the jars should be shaken loose to mix the wet and dry kernels. The jars should then be allowed to cool in a clean place. Always check the jars for cracks before shaking! When the jars have cooled to room temperature inoculations can take place. As the jars are cooling down the lids should remain loose or else they will pull a vacuum.

It's......rye! Still need to find a better source than the health food store. It's $1 per pound there. I've heard at feed stores it $1 per 10 lbs. Get some gypsum also, it'll keep the grain from sticking together.

Also, good info on grain nutrient value here

We never found the addition of gypsum necessary. If you add the proper amount of water the kernels will not stick together.
