Dry cakes
    #456308 - 11/12/01 08:26 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

How can you tell if your cakes are to dry after they were in the p.c . I think afoaf screwed up , the cakes look dry a light brown color , he opened one up and it felt pretty dry very little moisture . He was using 1/2 pint brf/verm. He cooked them for 45 minuts at 15 psi , this is probaly the reason they went dry , what is the proper cook time ? Is there anything that can be done , they have already been inculated

perhaps you live in the dryland like me, a perlite humidified colonization chamber is easy (aka, rubbermaid w/perlite+water+h202)

you should pc your jars at 15 psi for 20-30minutes, lay a washcloth on the bottom of the pc to keep the jars from having direct contact, which will dry out your jars

There is a rack at the bottom of the p.c that holds them up about a quarter inch or so, is the towl still needed ? Could 45 minuts at 15 psi do that much damage?

as I said, if your cakes are trying out, put them in a humidified colonization chamber :P

leave them in the jars.

put the jars in chamber.

they won't dry out.

depending on how dry they have gotton, they may rehydrate a BIT in this chamber, otherwise, you are fuxed :)

next time, as I said, follow my advice. :)

yup, if they are in a perlite rubermaid, loosen the lids a bit, I have to tell ya tho, if the cakes are *DRY* this won't help them it will only help if they are the ever so slightest bit dry. perhaps crack open a cake in a few days to check it out... might better off starting over, don't worry, happens to a lot of us :)
