Sticky yaky millet
    #4735191 - 09/30/05 05:15 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Ok, so here's the case:

I boiled millet for 35-40 minutes, let strain, load 1 liter jars and pressure cooked them for one hour...

Altho this recipe has worked well in the past, for some reason this time, i checked the jars 10 days after inoculation (multispore) and there was no sighn of mycelium....instead....the whole millet was now a gluey muddy smelly sticky shitty thing....

Do you think this was due to a mistake at:

a)Over-boiling the millet
b)Over-sterilizing the millet
c)not straining well enough

Have you got any better time schedule idea for this type of millet job?

Thanx for you input. :heart:

That's exactly what happened to me. And I didn't even boiled the millet, I just simmered it for 30min.

I think it's because of the simmering, but I don't seem to find a way around that.

I made a lot of mistakes at that one because it was my first (and only until now) so I'm not sure of it. And I'm quite unexperienced too.

I'd have to say you waay overdid the millet. What I've found on 4 rounds of 24 total pint jars of millet (results to come in due time), that simmering the millet more than 20 mins. causes a lot of them to explode and become slimey. I'd also have to say do not actually boil it, or if you do, turn the heat down immediately after visible steam rises from the pot.

PC time looks fine to me. I did all mine for between 1 and 1.25 hours.

When you strain...try running cold water through it all and move around with your hands; then, during straining, keep moving your hands ...clean hands...through it to help even more water run off.

I used one hole in the center of the lid and filled it with poly-fil so I'm not sure about the filter you're using. But I've seen it before in conjunction with the tyvek/filter discs, but I doubt that has a lot to do with the millet itself.

I don't boil my millet...I simmer it.

and don't use coffee filters for a filter disc...use them for a cover only.

Just soaking for 24 hours may also be an option you might want to consider, has worked well for me and plenty of others.

personally i think you didn't strain well enough. i usually simmer and strain but i find that when you wrap your hand in a paper towel it seems to absorb the access moisture better resulting in a shakeable jar of grains instead of a clumpy mass. i also find that when you mix half and half rye/WBS the rye absorbs the access water just by shakeing after sterilization.

I use plastic lids with a hole stuffed with poly stuff for ventilation and a single coffee filter. Works awsome for me.
