No.

It is a grain and Endospores must germ. to be killed.

wouldnt that just be a waste of time simmering would be easier if you can figure out the right ratio you could mix the corn and water in the jars close em up let them sit for 24 hours then pc once for 60 mins that should work fine

so your saying that pressure cooking for 90 minutes at 15 psi will not sterilize corn unless it's been soaked first? I do not believe this.

Well then, welcome to Mycology, I'm glad that you know everything. Here's a lesson.

Endospores Can't all be completely killed at PC-ing Temp.s


I'm also saying that Corn SUCKS.

Corn is one of the only grains that should be simmered. Some need (pieces of corn) to be broken (after u simmer they burst), They don't hold water like rye and wbs...

I've done a lot of corn so I know what i'm talking about.

Lemme get the link.

Lol.

Gd, Can't believe that Agar never posted about Endospores.

I'll find it. Just going to take a bit longer.

No Worries.

Popcorn is the worst possible choice of grains for mycology. It has heat resistant bacterial endospores that have been known to survive TWO hours at 15PSI.

Furthermore, placing popcorn in a PC without it being in jars is taking a big chance on ruining your PC. Several growers have found those endospores stuck in the pores of the aluminum, thus contaminating the PC itself. If you insist on using popcorn, always have it in jars with proper filters before you put it into the PC.

The best bet if you're stuck on popcorn would be to give it a 36 hour soak in a plastic container in warm water. This should germinate the endospores into live bacteria, thus making them easier to kill in the PC. You'll still need a simmer to get the corn hydrated to the proper moisture content. The kernels should be about double the original dry size. Then, load into jars and PC for two hours at 15 psi.
