How much vermiculite do you use with the WBS grain before PCing? And also, do you get the verm to the right water content and THEN add it to the WBS? Im a noob when it comes to grain.

well if anything you would add the verm dry (a little bit) to the wbs to soak up any excess water that may be in the wbs.
besides that it really isn't neccessary to do if you get the water content right to start.
do your soak or simmer or both and then let it drain for a good while, until you see that no more is dripping out. jar it up and pc.

good luck

Read my how I do grain but backup got it right, you add a small amount of dry verm as you strain, to soak up the extra water on the outside of the seed, just add it and mix it until the mix no longer looks soaked.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."
