My formulation (rough)
Save cooking water from a Batch of Rye. (I do NOT recommend pasteurization water from straw as some have suggested)
Let stand in sealed jar in fridge overnight to collect sediment at the bottom. Pour the clear top fluid into another flask. Dilute till the liquid is clear golden as opposed to darkish brown. I add 4% dextrose by wieght (assuming water and rye cooking water have the same specific gravity which they don't (i told you this was rough) you can equate 1cc = 1gm or 40gms dextrose per litre). Mix well, pour into pint jars halfway up, sterilize for 30 mins at 15psi. Inject whatever culture/spores you have. Should be done in 2 weeks at the out.
