Grain Problems
    #917012 - 09/29/02 05:02 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I am having some serious grain problems. 

1) First off, some weird yellow shit collects in the bottom of my jars.  I am pcing them enough and washing once before but I still get this nasty sediment type stuff in my jars.  When the mycelium takes it over, it turns yellow too!

2) They are taking forever!  I have my jars in an incubator but they seem to be taking so long to colonize. 

Also, please don't respond unless you use grains yourself.  I don't like it when people say "well I think it sounds like some contams i heard about."  thanx :smile:

Do the jars smell at all?

That kind of gel-like substance?  That's a kind of goo that will cook out of the rye if there's too much water.  The colored water will harden as it cools, forming a slimy liquid-like substance.  Just use a bit less water than before.  I think its the gluten that will cook out of any grain, thats what makes gravy thick. :grin:

No smell other than the normail mycelial smell.

Schmoppy's description sounds right. Does the mycelium have a hard time colonizing this "gluten" substance? Yeah, a batch was made today and simmered first to eliminate as much of this problem as possible.

If there is no adverse smell, there's a good chance it's overcooked, overhydrated, and bursted grains.

I wash my grain in plenty of cold water after simmering to get all the goo off, then leave it to drain for 15 mins. Also I add some vermiculite to soak up excess moisture.
