I used to be a rice miller and the brown rice still has the bran on it. White rice has had the bran slowly scraped off in a long process. Most white rice today is "enriched" which means that small broken up pieces of rice are soaked and then tumbled into vitamin powder to coat the pieces. After this has dried it is then mixed into the whole white rice to put back most of the "good stuff" that was in the bran.

Can Hippie3 or someone else confirm that they just use regular long grain rice? Since that shit is cheap as hell.

My first time with regular white rice was in 1978 and still going :)

Okay, I've just put 3 pints in the pressure cooker. I added a pinch of nutritional yeast and ~1/2 tsp. of ground flaxseed to each jar, for good measure. The lids are polyfill. I'll be starting a new thread to monitor the progress, once I've inoculated (in the next few days).

Cheers!

Great write-up, the simplicity of this tek and the thick whole-grain fruits make me want to give this a run.

So, the jars are out of the pressure cooker, and the moisture content seems right for them. Note: this was with short grain brown rice. They look pretty wet, but no more so than in the last pic, so I'm planning to inoculate soon with liquid mycelium.

Here is a couple pictures of this tek in action. If you look close (2 pic) you can see where the cake was cut in half to remove it from the quart jar.

Peace...

excuse my stupidness: so instead of using the regular canning lid, you used a filter disk and the canning lid ring instead (which could be substituted for polyfill or tyvek?) or both lid and filter? also, without any vermiculite in the rice, is it prone to drying out faster?

I will tell you what I have done over and over with good results. Any deviations would be experimenting but encouraged. I use a PF lid and ring with either a filter disk or kite grade tyvek. You are correct no vermiculite in the rice it may dry out little faster but no negative results. The rice holds more water when not ground up IMO so there is some trade off. Hope that answer your questions, I have found this to be simple and effective.

Peace...

They had grown up/out good before I printed them and they were pretty solid not quite as solid as the quads of the past.
