a couple grain questions
    #4522519 - 08/11/05 04:51 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i have pearled barley, and whole, hulled millet. i wanted to get rye but the only store that even sold it was out until tuesday. i was wondering if the barley and millet will work to make jars. the rye has its hard outer layer removed and the millet is hulled. would this make ok jars? how should i prepare it? how much of each should i use? and finally is there anything i should add to the jars, such as verm? please help me and thanks

the barley may work, haven't seen really too much on its use though. the hulled millet from what i have read will turn to mush and not colonize well.
i would have waited for the rye myself but i'm not one to jump out of the box without some research first.
good luck
peace

Hulled eh? I dunno for sure, but that sounds like it would be missing it's shell-like encasing which stops it from turning to goop in the PC.

Does your millet look like this?



If so, it's the right kind..

So, you bought the wrong kind, you can look for millet like in the pic at farm feed stores, or simply get a bag of Wild bird seed and use that. It's mostly Millet.

Works exactly the same. The jars will take slightly longer to colonize, a few days more is usually all.

Just leave enough room to shake the jars some.

I fill mine more than recommended in the TEK tho, like 65% full instead of 50% full at PC time.

Remember the grain will expand some during PCing. Mine end up like 80% full after PCing, and I have just enough room to shake them some, but I like to maximize the ammount of grain in each jar.

Cheers and best of luck!!! :thumbup:
