anything else than PC
    #3823544 - 02/23/05 07:23 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

alright, i know that the only way to sterilize grain (popcorn) is to PC it, but im stupid; so, before the flaming happens, im just wondering if there's anything else I could possibly use other than a PC. I know that the reasona PC works is because the pressure raises waters boiling point so that it can kill the little contaminats in there, but couldn't say, an oven do the same thing?

Your going to have to save your pennies and buy a PC. For 40$ you can get an 8qt PC from walmart or wherever, and I can fit 4 quart canning jars in there... BARELY... hehe.

If you can't afford one, just use the PFTek, or MMGG, or whatever.

Good Luck!

Wow! 30 jars!

Why not do a couple jars and move on to bulk sustrate?

If you dont your going to have the same problem in the future...

I still have to do 3 hours of sterilization myself, mabe split them over over a few days? Then you could have a good grow cycle going.

sure, you can use an autoclave, they cost more and usualy hold less but you can find some large ones that will sterilize your car for $100k and up

Not "fancy pants" at all, just frugal investment, if you do bulk spawn bags 20 @ a time. Time is money. I have seen an AA 941 (holds 18 quart jars)go over eBay not to long ago for $32. Nothing fancy, just frugal. I was stupified it went so cheap.
