Whats the most amount of water you have used with rice successfully?
    #4608288 - 09/01/05 03:07 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Some people like their grains to hold as much moisture as they can. I am growing sclerotia on rice which seems to be able to hold huge amounts of water compared to other grains. When sclerotia is harvested it usually leaves behind wizzened bone dry grains. It is usually advised to use less water with rice than you would normally use to cook it for eating. I have found you can get more water into it by over boiling than you would use for eating, especially if it is let cool overnight in hot water after cooking.

Has anybody used fully saturated rice for sclerotia or other grows with any success?

I cooked up 2kg of rice in water with coffee. It reached 9.25kg! TMC says long grain brown rice has 15% moisture and short grain has 26%. Mine was long white, if it was 15% it means I started with 1700g, so I have a moisture content of 81%!

Anybody?
I need to know soon enough. It is soaking at the moment. I figure the huge moisture content will be good for microwaving. I will be able to really blast it well. Oversoaked wheat/rye ends up exploding in the microwave, this rice should do very well. I have microwaved rice before with little success since I added the advised water amounts and ended up with hot/cold spots due to it being unshakeable.
