Bird seed gone wrong?
    #963806 - 10/15/02 05:58 PM (21 years, 6 months ago)

I have recently attempted using red millet in a bird seed tek. My first 2 flops were with finch seed. The last time i used 4 1 quart jars each filled about half way up. I drilled 4 4mm holes in the lids and placed a filter disk under them. I simmered the seed for 45 min then rinsed and re rinsed then pressure cooked for 1 hour. 2 jars were lost to black / grey mold ( I think its from a crapy syringe i made) the third is totally weird it has done noting cause it looks too wet or the seeds turned to mush the fourth just might pull through. what i was wondering about is the lids rusted were i drilled the holes, can that cause contamin? and what happened with the third jar? They were all made the same time. I am about to attempt to pc the red millet jars and i have no syringe, but have the print, any suggestions on how to inoculate? Rrr?? I think I might just go back to BRF cakes

Buy a syringe from a vendor.

BRF cakes will be going in reverse.
Just make a point of trying to get your water content right for birdseed, it`s the most important factor.
The contaminated jars sound like your syringe yes.
The other jar sound slike it was too wet.
I would suggest you make a jar of honey water and scrape some spores into the jar and let them germinate and colonise.
Use the honey solution, it works really well for grains.

You should have more success that way

Also I noticed you mentioned that the one jar turned to mush?? Were there a large number of burst grains in your substrate???
also did you dry the grain of properly before packing it into your jars???
try to leave it to dry for a while.
I personally also simmer my grains but some ppl suggest soaking them overnight and straining.
ANother important point is that the grain needs to be rinsed very well if you simmer it, when you take the grain off the stove it keeps cooking inside the grain.
You need to rinse it 4-5 times to cool the core of the grain.
