Grains - Corn
    #4287658 - 06/12/05 06:24 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Had some Squirrel food laying around :smirk:

It contains Peanuts/Corn/Sunflower seeds...(took out the peanuts)

I went ahead and Loaded some jars up, about 3/4th the way full (pints/qt's)..

-Soaked for about 30hours

After 24 hours they still didnt seem hydrated enough...I didn't want to simmer so I said fuck it and let them go.

-Simmered for about 15

I dumped the water out, rinsed and then looked at them and saw that Still, they didn't look hydrated enough. So I simmered, Some turned dark, some burst and some remained the same. They looked - BY FAR- Way more hydrated. About maybe 10% or less had burst.

After the simmer....

-Rinsed several times under COLD water...

I thought the cold water on the Hot corn would make some more burst...:shrug:

-Then I put them in a strainer and let them sit for 20 mintues..

When I went to put them in the jars, they looked Dry at first...

I loaded them into the jars and I had to wait on the PC to heat up a bit...I looked at the jars and :whoa: , I decided to just go with it, It had a little bit of water, Almost pooling, but not quite. I'm using Tyvek w/ lids that have 3 1/4(i think) holes...So I just wanted to make sure that they wouldn't dry out...

I'm doing G2G transfers, so hopefully it will colonize quickly and no problems will occur :grin:

Never found out a Right way to do Corn. WBS/Rye - Agar covered it...

I guess corn isn't widely used, I hear that you have to spawn it to something cuz it fruits poorly...I wonder why :confused:...Anyways, I have lots of straw (hasn't contamed yet :cool: ), so it's no biggie.

**6/13**

It's been about two days and the myc. is going lol, Where I did the g2g's to you see that the myc. is starting to have it's way for the corn :doggystyle:...Awesome :cool:.

**6/18**
So far it's looking absoutly Beautiful. Moisture content was right on the motherfucking DOT...:cool:

I'm very pleased so far...All the knock up points (from the g2g) are colonizing nicely. I'd say it'll be fully colonized in about 8 days....maybe less..

:cool:


NOTE: Everytime (almost) that i've done Grains, ANY grain, it always went green, The corn acually smells different (from all the other times)...It acually smells like great corn...I hope the WBS does well also.

Thankx 4 the comments :laugh:

I tried straight corn - years back. I was NOT IMPRESSED.

A little cracked corn in a WBS, rye or seed/grain mix doesnt hurt anything.
