Is it possible to sterilise a growing medium, in this case brown rice, without a pressure cooker or steamer e.g. by using a microwave?

Without a PC, yes, with a microwave? Iffy. (provided you mean Brown Rice Flour) Check this out: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23593

I have sterilized rice in the microwave. you must note you water contents and mix the grains up for even heating. I think the only viable option is using autoclave bags since rice is not very shakeable. Microwaves suffer hot and cold spots. a sealed a/c bag acts as a steamer giving a more even heat. I would also recommend multiple microwaving on different days i.e. fractional sterilization

I was going to use the microwave too, but you can pick up a pressure cooked at walmart for $17 that fits 4 jars at a time
