10 full days... today is the beginning of day 11. Milo is definitely faster than Oats without a doubt, and in my area, cheaper, Oats are up in price for some reason. All good, once the Oats are gone, I think it's a MOVE on situation for me. Mush Luv for Oats tho', truly nothing bad to say, but the seeds are huge comparatively, and I like how the LC with Milo runs down the jar all the way and colonizes around the bottom. Ok Ok, not a grain comparison thread, Rye or wheat probably wins that battle, but Milo/Sorghum is definitely my favorite going forward (100 lbs. almost $40... about 39cents a Lb). I do have some Rye, but I usually save it for Stone jars, or if I just want to play with something different. At the time I was looking for cheap grain, I was asking for Barley, Wheat, whatever is cheap, I do so many projects, it's just a must to buy in bulk. When I first started out just over a decade ago or so, I would grab a 40lb bag of Pennington WBS Classic and go to work. At the end of the day, they all can and are successful, rice, anything, shoot, I have legumes in my dirty Milo, doesn't make a difference. Anyway, blabbin' on and on like a babbling brook. This last No Prep run was awesome, everything colonizing FAST and I'm in the low 70's above my warm fridge and ripping through quarts. All I can say is I've cooked grains and dropped Oats in boiling water for 45 mins and this is just so simple, and I've proved that you don't have to clean NADA (the bag says recleaned... I about fell on the ground laughing). I'm in the foothills so I'm just about 100ft up from sea level (used to be at about 30ft), maybe a little more, and I've been sterilizing at 60 minutes for many cycles now with no issues. Well... the jars speak for themselves, no camera trickery here, just solid data.
Check out how full that jar is, NOT recommended @ 2cups
The Beech Clam has never been this fast on Oats... and this jar here
was so freakin' full, I should of dumped a few out in the SAB like I did the
other KO jar
Check out the Wine Cap that is crazy slow on Oats, already shaken once as well
G2G just doin' it's Thang!
Re-Knocked this one up again with an FP+ wedge, SUPER small wedge, an isolated area I liked...
We Will SEE
This jar of S75 Shiitake is SO damn fast, it beat the KO by almost 2 days, colonized in just over 7 days. Normal 2cc's or so of LC
The PROOF is in the pudding they say, I'm not changin' A THING (perfect moisture)!
