Super fast and effective wbs/grain technique.
Posted 17 July 2007 - 05:33 PM
Every time I pre soaked the grain I had a 100% success rate.
So, in my situation, your tech leads to failure.
That's what I like about this hobby, it's very case sensitive.
Before someone pulls the, "there are so many variables card" , I used sound experimental protocal, with a control group, etc.

Do those ever give you troubles?
The reason I asked is that in the past when I used broken corn pieces I would get wet spots
but then again I didnt use the soak tek.
I just added the water and then pc'd
I havnt used WBS for a long time but after seeing this I think I may give it anouther whirl.

Any idea on cooking time with out a pressure cooker?
With wild bird seed? There is no time.
If you want to use wbs, you've got to
get a cooker.

"Anywhere from 1-3 hours later, the seed will have swelled up above the water line"
"the time it takes to do that isn't near enough to put the seed at maximum water holding capacity... because the rinse and short drain time will add more water to it while it's being cooked. "
am i missing something.
you don't state how long you cook for,or are you referring to the pc run.
are you saying that just rinsing will add more water to the grain?
been doing the same, apart from the soaking for 1-3 hours. i bring to the boil,reduce the heat to the lowest setting (pasteurising temps) for ~45 minuites,or...untill the wheat berries have the texture of bread dough when squeezed between the fingers.
then drip dry for a while and blow dry the grains untill they don't stick to your fingers.
tried the added gypsum part for the first time today,looking forward to the results.
Shit, sorry. I didn't see your questions.
The 1-3 hours it takes for the seed to swell up isn't enough to put the seed at full water holding capacity. Then after the colander isn't dripping ANY water from below while being shook (usually 15-30 minutes), mix all of the seed up well so all of the seeds get an even amount of moisture. The seeds on the top of the pile will be dryer than the seeds on the bottom of the pile from sitting and draining. Then load up your jars and pc for 105 minutes @ 15psi. The excess moisture that was coating the seeds gets cooked in to them during the pc run. The seed comes out perfect every single time! Just like everything else, you may need a time or 2 to get it right. But if you follow my easy directions, you should easily have success on your first run. I wouldn't do wbs any other way now. No way.

You want to use 1-2cc's of spores or liquid culture.

I've never tried it with WBS.
I've got an extra Hillbilly syringe with this tech's name written all over it.
