i think my popcorn is to dry.. can i fix it??
    #4319944 - 06/21/05 10:44 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i made up some popcorn jars there over the weekend and after i was done and they cold when the curnals touched the glass u could see a water spot, but now they dont do that anymore is there a why i can rehydrate them, there already inoculated with LC?  i soaked cernals for 24 hrs then boiled for 1 hr, drained for 30 min and PC for 45 min.  for the lid i have about a 1/4" hole filled with pollyfill..  ive made up about 3 or 4 sets of jars doign the exact same steps with the same lids and havent had a problem.. these ones just look dry.  and if there isnt anything i can do will they still colonize or will the mycilum just die off :frown: or just grow realy slow??

They shouldnt look wet. If no growth starts you can inject sterile water into the jar.

No, but a little water when touching the glass is normal...doesnt mean its not normal if its not there. The outside of optimal grain kernals should look dry though...all the moisture the kernals need is on the inside of the kernal...it seems like your preperation should have put plenty of water in, so I wouldnt worry about it to much.

Either way, theres no god way to hydrate grains, expecially popcorn...doesnt absorb cool water just squirted in, and hot water could do your spores harm. And to wet is far worse then to dry IME.

Good luck...keep in mind, more people have problems with popcorn then grains like WBS and rye, so if it doesnt work out, think about trying a new grain.

ya i thought about WBS but it seems like theres more work involved :smile: and i cant find rye berries around were i live i have to go like 45 min away to get them.  i like popcorn cuz all i have to do is dump it in my pan, boil, fill basicly.. with WBS you have to rinse filter rinse pick out all the floaties ect.. but thats just what ive read.. i think im gonna try some WBS vs Popcorn here mabye next round and see witch is better.

Thats just what you read...

WBS prep...

Fill bowl 1/2 way or less with WBS, fill with water, soakd for 24 hours, either strain for an hour and load into jars and PC, or simmer for 10-30 minutes, strain for 30-60 minutes and load into jars and PC.

Thats it...

so its the same as popcorn.. i read you have to pick out all the sunflower seeds and that..and rinse it like 2or 3 times to get all the endospors and junk off it.. so i could go pick up some bird feed at wal-mart and do it??

Most do rinse it, but I never do. Sunflower seeds provide lignins and oils, good for mycelium to grow on. Good for bacteria to, but properly sterilized it is not a problem, and a good thing to have them in. Yes you can pick up some at walmart...look for one with mostly milet and milo, and less then 5% sunflower seeds. Petco also has good stuff.

Using WBS right now. All jars gone mooshy but 2. they appear dry, and myc growing SLOW. Maybe the Tyvek, maybe water bs. Attempting it again. You better be right Scatman, cuz I'm trying it your way this time.
