Read the information about fractionalization. They claim that even after sterilizing the grain still has spores that have survived. Soak the grain and let it sit for a day. The contaminants will hatch. Boil the grain a bit to kill everything. Let it sit a day or 2 and boil it a bit. You don't want to cook it, just sterilize it. Let it sit a day and then fill your jars and PC it. That way all the spores have hatched and been killed. If everything has been killed then there is no way contamination could enter the jar unless your filters are leaking. At the bottom of the jar you should be getting anaerobic bacteria. However it has a very strong and evil smell and I thought it would be killed by PCing.

Another possibility is that even with the PCing, the temperature at the centre of the jar never reached optimum. The longer time for cooking would solve that problem.

I've been having psilly dreams lately

That would be subtract weight 2 from weight 1 and divide by weight 1

Anno, using 100 grams of wet grain is the key. Example.

Weight 1= 100 grams (grain from the bag)
Weight 2= 90 grams (oven dried grain)
W1-W2 = 10 (% moisture in grain from the bag)

The grain in this case was 10% moisture content out of the bag.

Your formula works for any other starting measurment than 100 grams. Your formula gives a decimal answer, mine gives a %. Same thing though really.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.
