Used Tyvek without any foil before PC'ing...mistake?
    #4259787 - 06/05/05 02:12 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I followed this grain tek to the T. I noticed it said nothing about using foil while PC'ing. I put tyvek over the metal lid then screwed on the outer rim and PC'ed some grain jars. After coming out of the PC, it seems as though the water content changed. Could it be my imagination? My quart jar seems more dehydrated post-PC while my half pints all look wetter post-PC. To sum it up...does tyvek allow water to pass through when used in the PC?

Yes, IME. You should use foil over the top or just put the tyvek under a jar lid that has a hole in it.

I never cover with tin foil. I did one batch once...never saw a difference so said fuck it...I go through tin foil enough as it is.

Water content will also change, because the grains will absorb the moisture left on the outside of them when you load up the jars, because of the heat. Then you pull out the jars and shake them up and the next day the water content balances out nicely. Like 24-48 hours after removing from the PC and after a few shakes you should have some grain jars that shake pretty esily, and almost look dry on the outside of the grains, but the grains should all look swollen with water.

Thanks for the replies.  Well I used organic long grain brown rice so I was unable to shake them successfully, however they do still look swolen from when I allowed them to soak pre-PC.  I'll give them another couple weeks before I toss them and go buy some WBS I guess.  Can't find rye anywhere around here, I've checked feed stores and all the organic food stores to no avail  :shrug:

Brown rice is fine and great...but water content is difficult. Colonizes very fast, but doesnt shake well. I knew it wouldnt though so I added verm to the jars (as I usually do) and only filled the quarts 2/3 of the way (usually I fill them slightly over 3/4, not much shake room but works fine). They sook until they colonized...then wouldnt shake anymore. Some 1/2 pints filled all the way with 0 shake room colonized from spores in like 7 or 8 days (1/2 cc in 2 holes with a bandaid covering both holes).

WBS is easy to find though and way cheaper..and better for using as spawn if your spawning to bulk.

Do you just cover your jars with straight tyvek and a ring?

...according to your "how i do grain" you have a lid on top as well, correct?

Yes as I showed, I do use the lid as well. All my lids get two holes punched in them with a screwdriver. I go lid, tyvek square, then ring to hold it down..keeps it simple.
