Thanks,

 I’m not sure what to do yet, I don’t think I can run my pc again today or Tomorrow. It might be next week before I can do that. Right now I’ve got them in the oven at 220. I gotta leave in an hour, might transfer them to a germination Mat To sit in for the rest of the day 🤷🏼‍♂️

So, what I like to do is dry them off with a towel after soaking to capacity

I didn’t soak I PCd for 30 minutes

Which is soaking, if you used water... But if there is too much you have to get it out. If you open the jar, you need to PC again.

Don't break the kernels.

 

For sure I just wanted to clarify in case  that would alter anything . I had it in the oven at 230 for a half hour before I pulled it . I’ll check it in the morning . 

 

If I do put them back in the pc for 90 minutes again will the kernels break you think ?

I was dumb and rushing things. I have a measuring cup that I could’ve used to help me gauge where 600 ml was on a jar. @6spore6 seems to think they were to wet when I put them in the jars and that the water isn’t from over filling.

well 6spore uses a different tek. Personally, I do No soak No simmer with WBS and it works well for me. I do 2 cups seed .75 cups water now and I haven't had issues (I do that so the jar isn't stuffed 1 cup of water/50% fills it too much). shaking is crucial tho for the tek. But I cant imagine myself soaking and simmering spawn, never have and dont think I will. as of now anyway lol

Look. I'mma let up a little... I'm not feeling so friendly tonight... I'm sorry...

 

In the future... If you are going to follow a tek, then follow it. If you don't, then expect to have to start over. If you mess up, don't question how to fix it. Throw it away, and start over. This is NOT the hobby for laziness. Just give it all that you got, and give %120.

 

We cool?

Don’t worry my dude I don’t take people on the internet too seriously . 

 

I had a feeling when there was a little leftover in my colander that I could leave that out but didn’t. 

 

And if the kernels split I’m screwed? Hmm didn’t see that in the tek

Yeah I’ve done those before. I did rye bags years ago but unfortunately don’t live close to anywhere that sells bulk rye . Popcorn is the next cheapest thing for me .

In keeping with the need for exact measurements here is the 600ml mark since my jars don’t have it .

After looking through this popcorn, I see a lot of splits and think I’ll start over. I had a conference call during the pc and when I came back it was up to 17psi. Think that may be the deal. I’ll have more time over lunch to keep a weather eye on it .

Yeah, I wasn’t initially to keen on it but. Maybe with the bucket system I can see that cutting down on time. I want to get a batch of jars going quick and then when they are ready g2g them . I thought popcorn would be easier . 

 

This is what I get for thinking lol 

 

i Lived by a feed store for decades and now I wish I were still there . But then again if I were I would also be surrounded by cow patties

This is the third go and I watched it closely my pc never went above 15.5 psi. And my pc was running for 30 minutes exactly. I’m still getting a few splits

I don’t see as many as before but still... I’ll probably pick some out while it’s on the towels drying a bit.

Yep. You won't avoid having a few pop. As long as you don't see too many. Just don't let extra moisture stay around.

I’ve got them on a towel now and transferring to another towel. Then filling up to my 600ml mark and pc for 90

No worries. But I do have a question I’m pondering . 

 

Could you do the NSNS for popcorn just the same ? 2c corn 1c water I think is what I read ? Would I need to tweak that water amount for popcorn ?

I don't know about that as the "field capacity" of popcorn may be different to WBS but thats just a guess since there are more or less grains in either one. 

I'd give it a shot with one jar, inoculate that see if it works and adjust accordingly. I'm sure after some tweaking you can find a good ratio, if not a tek already somewhere to use as a base. 

 

personally I do 2c seed 3/4cup water, seed inflates too much to shake comfortably otherwise and colonizes fine

I too am ripping my bong as we speak... lol. Everyone uses different methods. Don't combine them. Just do one thing or another, but follow it perfectly. my way takes WAAAAYYYYYY more time. I just simply choose to be thorough.

I work with woodies... Of all sorts... I am just messing with cubes again to help out in the community. I'm about to release a trial with fruity pebbles though... Don't have any clue what will come of it...

WHOAH WHOAH WHOAH..... Are you putting water in after they are already soft and soaked to PC? You don't need that if you are...

 No no, the 600 ml mark was where the tek I read  said to fill your pcd corn to. After a good rinse that is.

Yeah I’ll try with one jar next time and keep a log of that.

      Only one way to find out for sure.   Mix it with a good substrate and see if it colonizes cleanly.   If so case it and put it into fruiting conditions.  
    • Mushinist
      Yum, the bottom looks like it's full of bacteria hence the gooey looking grains, and if it takes 2 months to get to that weak looking myc then something is wrong. With GT it should look more like a big cotton ball. 
    • DonkeyHote
      It looks ok to me. I would proceed to the next step of your tek. I assume you're going to mix with a bulk substrate.
    • AmySorg
      So I bought two grain spawn bags (from shroom supply). They took forever to grew the mycelium (almost two months). The first one was very weird so I just threw it away (sadly). The Second one is weird so I'm not sure if I should proceed with it.    There's white all over it but it doesn't look like mycelium but it doesn't look like mold either.    Can you guys help me please? 
    • Sonshyn
      So the tek says you need an oven bag with a blue ship about 1/3 from the bottom  of the bag, and a tyvek patch 2/3 of the way to the top of the bag that you tape on or use rtv.    My my question is it says to cover the patch with foil so the tyvek doesn’t get wet ... so just tape some foil over the patch or???
