stupid question
    #505169 - 12/30/01 08:57 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

ok, i know this is probably retarded, but is steeping just cooking shit in water? If so, how much water should you use for different materials? I couldn't find any details on the subject.

steeping is what one would do toa tea bag in hot water-- letting it sit and soak.

I feel your pain. People around here use it interchangably between the meaning above and simmering. Steeping usually does mean that boiling water is poured onto whatever you want to steep. If your refering to Birdseed however, I believe that you need to simmer it on a very low temp for the required time.

Im asking how much water should I use with certain grains, and should I strain the graisn after they've been steeped, or just leave the water that I used to steep them in the substrate?

Keep the water level over the top of the grain while cooking at a low boil. Drain WELL using a strainer or colander.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I can only speak of birdseed. Depending on the brand but might as well do it to everything, you should rinse the HELL out of it. I mean HELL. At least on Penningtons they coat it with some kind of vitamin shit and if you don't wash that off then you will have the GOO. You don't want the GOO. Somone I know but am not conjugal with is currently experimenting with 2:1 birdseed to verm. The results are stupendous. Very fast colonizing and not one jar of GOO.
