An update,
I've been having good luck with:

24oz Brown rice
8oz Pearled barley
500ml water

You can dump them in a bag and PC them 2 hrs @ 15psi.

Some things I've learned:

-Soaking overnight does make for better/even hydration. It doesn't seem to matter in the long run but maybe? Sometimes I fill the bag at night and don't want to stay up while it cooks. Just wake up and start the PC along w/some coffee.

-If you are going to fill the bag and PC, then try to flatten the bag of rice instead of rolling it.

-Make sure your grains have room to expand, I think they at least double in size, they will burst your bags.

-After you inoculate and seal your bags, take your time to thoroughly break up and mix your grains. Not only will this distribute inoculant but mix the drier grains with the very moist.

So far, I've used this with different psilicybe, Lion's Mane and now, Cordyceps militaris.

To the recipe above, I added 6Tbsp powdered chicken feed and 10ml more water, no overnight soak. The cordy ate 2 pounds of sub in 6 days!
