Need Organic?
    #3741786 - 02/06/05 07:49 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Do I need Organic Rye? I can get 20lbs of Organic Rye for 26.00 that's double the cost of a 50lb bag of non-organic Rye.

Is it really going to be worth it? i can get a 50lb pound of organic WBS for 6.99 :crazy: Should I just maybe stick with that? I really want to get more constant results. It seems every time a get another bag of WBS the grain is at a different ratio so getting correct water content is sorta a pain for me.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

You can use the WBS as an additive to the rye. Non organic may work, but it may not..you'll have to try it out and see if it contains any fungisides or something that prohibit growth. If you dont get any growth or run into problems youll know why and youll know you need to go with the organic stuff. I do about 10 scoops of rye and 3 scoops of WBS...soak in a big pot and simmer until rye gets swollen, alot of millet will pop. Strain and mix with 3-6 scoops of verm untill its got a nice wet look to it but not over saturated.

fungicides are used heavily on rye crops due to ergot claviceps. claviceps attack rye more than any other cereal grain. You might still be able to use it if you rinse it really well *before* soaking the grain. I wouldn't know though because I've never used non-organic rye. If cost is really a big factor for you just use the WBS.
