Also the All American 921! Got it on E-Bay for $56 US. Now I can start pasteurizing correctly. Should help.

impresive eq cakes on last page
i wonder how much
malt one might get away with
in a 'pf' cake ?
Posted 16 April 2005 - 05:16 PM
for 8 jars; 4cups verm, 2 cups BRF, 1/2 tsp light amber malt extract, 2/3 cup coffee grounds,(wet with their own water), 3tbsp crushed oyster shells, 1/2 tsp Gypsum, 480 ml water.
The 1/2 tsp of malt equates roughly to the 1/4 tsp culture dilution where I originally came across it. Somwhere in the old archives is a modified Karo tek where they used malt ext. instead of corn syrup. They noted the fastest growth in 1/4 tsp per ~ 240ml. 1/2 tsp worked also but, was slower. I have now done cakes both ways and either works. without the malt I have many jars that simply don't colonize. I think it may help offset the lack of Oxygen due to altitude.
Note: Now I have a mix of 4pts gypsum: 1pt CaCO3. Use it ~ 2 pts per 100 wt of substrate.
