Past History With Cakes!?!?
    #660906 - 06/03/02 05:17 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

first jar, second jar, third jar:
1st got about 80% colonized, then substrate dried out
2nd and 3rd jars: colonized about 25% or so, and contaminated

Then i decided to find a Tek for whole brown rice:
4th jar: too dry , later got contaminated
5th jar: too wet, huge puddle to about half way up the jar
6-8th jar: tried experimenting with ratios for whole brown rice, didnt work out

So if anyone is reading this and had a good Whole-Brown-Rice Tek which works for them, please reply with it, if not and just reading, then let this just be a history of me and cakes. =)

PATIENCE!! PATIENCE IS THE KEY!!! <-- heh it better be true!! and i better get a good flush when my cakes work out!

1 cup BRF 1 cup water 2 cups verm. Add the verm and flour befroe you add the water.
Another recipe is 3/4 cup BRF 3/4 water and 2 cups verm.
Remeber to use a top layer of verm to seal out contams, and wipe the inside of the mouth clean of substrate before adding the top layer of pure verm of contams canh use it as a ladder to climbdown past the pure verm into your substrate.

all he did was give you the pftek recipe which is reffered to over and over on this site so please do some reading first.read the pftek-its probably one of the best teks for beginners and you will have a fairly high success rate if all directions are followed to the T

the times ive used whole drain brown rice ive always allowed to soak overnight in water then boil for a few minutes 10-20 then strain off and put in jars then pressure cook 1 hour let cool over night and innoculate but ive had problems with this when not paying attention to water content of rice prior to pc'ing

Don`t soak the rice first, too much moisture introduced.
Just cook it as usual, fluff it with a fork
or, put 1/4 cup rice with 1/2 or so cup into the jar and sterilise, rice cooks and not too much moisture

Derrayld and out of control
