Grain question
    #4648848 - 09/12/05 02:41 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I just finished PCing some jars of rye grain, and the grain in a couple of the jars swelled up slightly, i assume due to water absorbtion. I wish i could take some pictures, but theres no standing water in the jars, they just look a little moister than the others. There is still SOME room under the lid so i can shake the grain effectively. Has anyone else run into the swelling of grain before?

Yes, I have followed the rye grain tek to a 't' so far. I'm worried a little bit of water got into a few of my jars while they were being PC'ed and cooked the grain a little more than I already did boiling it...i put foil tightly over the tops of the jars...really they dont look like they are in dire straights, im going to inoculate them tomorrow and see what happens. If anyone cares to comment, though, I would bow at the feet of experience.

Seeing grain expand after PCing is a good thing. It means it absorbed moisture for your little friends to use. As long as you don't see standing water you should be ok. Sometimes I like to add verm to my grain before PCing to help absorb any extra water that could be in there.

yes i have the same exact issue. i pc'ed last week after filling my qt jars enough to leave 1-1.5" from the top. well after pc'ing i noticed the part of the jar that was submerged had larger grains then on top. its going to be tough shaking these guys up, guess ill just have to make due. im not worried though :laugh:
