Millet Question...
    #645950 - 05/26/02 11:42 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I am planning to soak the millet overnight? and then pressure cook it insted of having it on a low boil for an hour or so, and then pressure cooking it... I have heard that this helps keep the number of exploded kernel's down.

Which way do you prefer? and... how long should you let the millet soak... "overnight" is kinda broad. 8hrs?

i let mine soak for 24 hrs without boiling it
works great for me
i did a little xperiment with it as well
i did two jars where i filled with distilled water so that all the seeds would burst
i did 2 jars where only 1/2 the seeds in the jar burst
and 2 jars where none of the seeds burst
inocultaed with pesa
in 2days it started to show growth
but the ones that had all the seeds burst showed the most in the following days
the 1/2 and1/2 jars colonized on the burst side the most and not so much on the other side
and the jars that none of the seeds burst was really slow slow growth it grew but was very slow

i dont know what other people have done and had success with but that is my millet xperiment

best of luck to you

I failed many times before succesfull w/t millet. There are many ways to do these jars. I hate to see someone go through what I went through, almost giving up in the process. I use Workmans recipe-

For qrt Jars take-
300ml Millet
180ml Distilled Water***
I don't use tap water, As I found out the hard way it has all kinds of contams
in it that I believe are more resistant to PR. Cooking & sterilization as they are
living in water with Chlorine/bleach.
Teaspoon of Gypsum

1. Dump Millet into Jars
2. Add Water
3. Mix
4. Add Gypsum- Dont Mix it in b/c it will sink to bottom which leads to Carmalizing
after Cooking.
5.Apply lid, Filter, & Duct Tape
6. Incubate Jars for 16/20hrs to soften up spores
7. PR cook jars at 15psi once for 70 minutes once you hear it hiss.
8. Shake Jars Keep on Shaking Dont stop Shaking jars
9. Put jars back in Pr. Cooker.
10. Let Jars cool in Pr. Cooker -**Don't cheat on this step until you are more
experiance. I got flamed trying to cheat this step.
11. If you owna hepa you can place jars in front of it to cool & skip step 9-10
****Use a Baby Bottle when measuring out the contents for correct moistore content.
****Spray Lysol everywhere before opening Pr. Cooker
I use this method & have found, it works good...
If you have problems with this style I'd say to try PF Cakes & innoculte horse dung

Best of Luck!!!

I just tried a couple differnt jars, one with just millet, which the bottom got all compacted together, and some others which are half millet, and rice flour, I think the half and half will work good, I also soaked my millet overnight. The just millet jar, has still a top layer that is shakable, so it may still work. Also where do you buy, or how do you make distilled water? Why is millet more susceptiable to bacteria?
