so back on valentines day I started a few 1/2pints of BRFagar(just BRF and water)  here are the best 2


I'm going to cut wedges out to nocc up 3 jars of popcorn/aspen shavings/PF mix/coffee and add about 30 cc of water and use a blender blade to do the slurry in a hurry (well mostly I'm a use a meat injector syringe instead of that fancy pants lid) to nocc up another 3 quarts and use the original LC on 2 more we'll see which goes faster I also plan on starting 2 agave agar jars from each (wedges/slurry/LC)

step 1 load popcorn into 7 jars and fill with water cover with foil and put in the pc I don't bother with lids at this step
step 2 PC for 60 min at 15psi
step 3 once the pressures off(don't rush it or you can explode the popcorn) dump into a strainer rince with first hot than cold water
step 4 toss in a couple big handfuls of (in this case aspen shavings but I've used verm wbs) your dry material and toss it this step replaces towel or fan drying
experimental step 4.5 (because I had some extra PF mix to night and no more pints or half pints) mix in about a pint of PF mix so it coats the popcorn and aspen shavings fairly evenly
step 5 load em up in jars and PC em at 15psi for 45 min
here is the mix before I loaded it into pints

I also made about 10 of these pints on the 20th they are layers of coffee/flour(BRF/WBS/corn/oat)and the cardboard from the packages that my cultures came in nothing yet but I have high hopes
