I'm gonna try this since I found a cheap source of organic grains and flours near me. I know that MMGG says to boil the jars for 45 min in a regular pot; but that's a 1/2 pint jar. I did simply multiply the reciepe by 4 but how long should it be pressure cooked? I'm thinking 30 min should be sufficient.

the problem here is that quarts take so long to colonize, you often run into problems.
that's why folks use whole grains in quarts,
because you can shake it up to speed colonization.
but brf is too sticky to shake.
so you'd better use lots of inoculant if you want success.
i'd go with 45 minutes, btw, at 15 psi.

Yep Mr. B. My friend did 6 of them...

almost a whole syringe of karo water per....
progress is soooooo slow all the same.

If you have future plans for those quarts, ditch the brf idea, and go with either seed or grain.

Trying to make grains into cakes now.. will let ya know how it goes.. And LOL! When my buddies quarts either finish colonizing or contam, will let ya know :)
