Rye without the seed skin. Should I soak less and cook less. Don’t know Does anyone
Organic Hulled Rye Groates
Hulled outs dont have the hull so they dont retain water very well and have a tendency to turn to mush in the pressure cooker.
If you cant find unhulled rye grain then just buy a bag of bird seed, the prep is the exact same.
I have unhulled rye grain. It’s already soaked, simmered and in the sterilized jar. I’m going to pressure cook. I’m only doing one jar, quart size, After it cools I will break up and inject.
You have to pressure cook the jar for 2hours at 15psi or it will go to bacteria.
That is written in stone.
In the pressure cooker now
Now i am trying to break up the pressure cooked rye grain .Does it matter if it’s not entirely Brocken up few clumps
Going to inject spores Fingers crossed
hi, great topic going here. love to put my 2Cents in. if it's already moisture. leave as is. you just want to clean it at this point. I personally like to PC everything for about 90 mins. so if I had your rye seed. no hull.. just the 90 minutes pressure cook down satisfy me to set in incubator and see if anything grow. if nothing after two weeks. nothing there. you'll know you had a winner. then I trash the test and redo it. but then induce after when jars are cool, before going into your incubator. Noc them . wow, hope the bosses like my advice....
With unhulled grain I understand if you pressure cook it for too long it will turn to mush . I pressure cooked for 30 mi let cool overnight broke it up then innculated. If it doesn’t work then I will try again. This time I will use wild bird seed, Will update on progress good or bad. I have a good feeling about this!!
What do you use for an incubator?
Tub in tub method. with little tank heater.
What kind of a tank heater. I have it above the stove in a cupboard Warm up there because of the oven
Aquarium Tank heater. Small one
I'd just keep it in the cubboard above the oven.
No need for a tub in tub incubator for p.cubensis, only if you were growing a species that was dependent on being regulated at a set temperature above room like p.cyan.
Room temperature is perfect for colonizing cubensis.
Thanks I have a question how long does it take for the spores to colonize. In the syringes I cannot see any spores. Is it possible for them to dissolve. I added another .2 of the spore syringe to the jars. The reason for this is because I read that you are not supposed to shake the jar after you inject the spores and the first time I did. Hope this works. I guess you could say I am experimenting. Another thing in the package that the syringes came in there was a surprise, a spore print. Don’t know what kind it is but I’m going to upload a picture
Thank you everyone for taking an interest. I love having advice from the experts. You guys are great
