Popcorn tek question
    #3527774 - 12/21/04 02:53 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Can you skip the 24 hour soak? I forgot to do this and just threw it on the oven a few minutes ago, could I just simmer it for another half hour or so?

I've been simmering for 15 minutes now, only got 30-45 minutes left, should I simmer for longer or what? I was thinking I could simmer and soak for 24 hours after. I need answer quick guys, sorry to bump it but time is most definately an issue here.

Heard of good results of people who dont soak nor simmer, but PC it twice.
First PC 60 minutes (not in jar) take it out, drain it. Draintime depends on how much you have how thick your corn layer is, id say between 15-30 mins.

Then put in jars and pc again.

You could simmer I guess, and soak 12 hours or so after wards. Then PC in Jars.

If you PC a whole grain in the PC not in jars, just loose submerged in water to hydrate you can't tell when they're ready. 60 minutes is longer then I cook grains at simmering temps (less then 212 degrees), in a PC temps would be greater and grains would hydrate quicker. 60 minutes would be way to long..especially if your talking 15 PSI.

I'm talking about hydrating grains here, not PCing them in jars to sterilize them..just so theres no confusion.

me too talking hydrating, and I know of folks who always work that way. Maybe the first PC time was 45-50 minutes but close to 60 anyway... But dont forget that Corn is real hard, harder then rye.

No problems with not soaking thus far. Simmer, PC, cool, inoculate.
