I'm bothered that my grain isn't getting enough moisture into it. I'm using popcorn kernals and trying to get them to absorb their own weight in water so as end up with 50% moisture content - which seems to be a rule of thumb level from Stamets GGMM.
So, for instance, I've just cold soaked 500g of 'corn in 500ml of water for 48hrs and now drained it catching the run off in a measuring jug. My 'corn has absorbed approx. 200ml of water. The other 300ml is in the measuring jug.
My corn, therefore, is currently at:-
200/(500+200) * 100% = 28% moisture content.
Should I put the 300ml of water back in with the corn, PC it and hope it absorbs it all? I can't imagine it will though ...
Any advice please ? :)

I'm going with this, into jars with modded lids, into the PC.
