Re: Rye Grain and water ratio..???
    #86342 - 06/19/00 09:39 PM (23 years, 8 months ago)

Rye grain is my favorite!
I use 1 cup ORGANIC rye grain to 3/4 cup water, actually just a little bit less.
I sterilize 1.5 hours at over 15 psi. Check your altitide; you may need to increase your pressure due to elevation.
Filter discsare a blessing! Otherwise, wrap foil over lids that are on loose. Reason is when jars cool, if they are on tight a vacumn can form; sucking in contaminates as it is opened:
"Spontaneous contamination."
Let cool in the box they came in sprayed with lysol.
Inoculate right away if possible.
Shake jars after 5 days- give or take.
Once completely white, use to spawn, or lay out in small trays and case.
Note: If several grains do not turn white, you may have bacillus, or some other bacteria perhaps.
Sniffing jars is not recommended, however if a sour apple smell is detected it may be bacillus.
Buttered popcorn- gray whisker mold, etc.
Once you try grain,
anything else seems insane!

I use the following formula for my grain:

W = R x 0.8 + 20

The weights are in gram!!
(1 ounce is 28.35 gram)

The same formula in ounces:
W = R x 0.8 + 0.7

How to use: Let?s say you want to take a quart jar, then you will take some 160 gramm rye.
The water you will add follows: 160 x 0.8 + 20 = 148 gramm

Or you take a pint jar: 80 gram rye
80 x 0.8 + 20 = 84 gramm water.

I allways add a small amount(knive tip) of gypsum to provide some additional microelements and to prevent sticking of the kernels.

It?s easy to do without silver and gold
or even pleasures of love
but its hard to do without mushrooms.
