few questions about rye, syringes, and fruiting
    #563207 - 02/26/02 01:51 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

figure i might posibly get these questions answered in one post

1. When steeping rye to get the correct moisture content, is it ok to have exploded kernals? i steeped for 45 min but i feel like too many exploded. This normal?

2. When casing a quart jar in the jar itself, am I too expect bigger more robust fruits due to the substrate layer being so thick? The thicker the substrate the better right? would one get less out of a quart jar of rye when casing IN the jar compared to casing in a tray?

3. I made a few syringes the last few days. Every syringe I have mad or bought has had some clumps of spores and or noticable spores floating in it. The syringes i made today were different. I scraped the spores in a shot glass then gently squirted about 4cc of water from the syringe in it, they acted like oil and water, the spores turned to like a oily stain floating in water. ya with me? I hope you understand what i mean. As i pulled all the spore water in the syringe I could not see nothing at all, this should have been one dark syringe! I need to know if i should toss this syringe, guess i could find out for myself. Any ideas?

thanks in advance!

1. No, there should be hardly exploded kernels. The steeping time or temperature were out of order.
3. This is normal.

I know exactly what you mean about the syringes. Some look like there's pepper floating around and other times the spores just dissolve into nothingness. I have found that the spores that dissolve and become invisible actually colonize faster. I think they are much better spread out.

I have about 10-15% rye explode as well but never encountered any problems. What I do is bring water to hard boil befor adding rye. Then I reduce to a very low simmer for 45 minutes. There seems to be less explosions that way.

I also use quart jars but I crumble the rys into a aluminum baking dish then case. Never had any probs.

Syringes seem fine.

Casing within the Quart jar itself is a VERY old method from the old OSS and OERIC book.

It is an obsolete method, and having a thicker rye layer does not mean greater fruitings. It is much better to case in another opaque container to avoid pin formation underneath the casing layer.

I dont know why people steep rye grain, I dont believe it to be necessary, 1 cup rye, 200ml (short of 1 cup) water, in jar, seal, PC for 1 hour, done. No need to steep, drain, fill jar etc. I just find it easier.

When making syringes, I quickly stir the water with spore in it within the shot glass with the needle tip to created a black spore suspension. However, not seeing spores doesnt mean their not there. It may be necsessary to suck up/squirt out the water into the shot glass several times.
