pc'er smell???!!!!
    #4091008 - 04/24/05 10:17 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

what causes the smell that comes from the pc'er when sterilizing rye jars??? I notice the water becomes discoloured and takes on a nasty smell.
is there anything that can be added to the water to prevent this?
the pc manual suggests adding vinigar to prevent hard water deposits on the glass jars but this only makes the smell worse and i dont care about the hard water deposits on the outside of the mason jars

well you know there is steam right? aaaaaaaaaaaall on the inside of the pc,
also inside your jars, killing all the nasty germs.

its like boiling the grains in a certain way (not literally but still)
therefor the discoloration of the water also comes ..

anyway, you cant do anything to avoid it, it will always smell of lovely grains being pc'd
unless you get yourself an autoklave that does not constantly release steam and therefor
keeps the smell inside itself once having reached proper autoklaving temperature.

kids ... dont grow shrooms in your parents house unless they know and agree ..

If the smell is actually 'nasty' as in rancid/acidic or whatever, then there's probably something not quite right. It should smell of happy fresh grains :smile:
