I tried using a WBS mix that had cracked corn in it with disastrous results. I prepared it like I normally do WBS without cracked corn and it turned into a huge sticky mess in my kitchen. I never attempted to use it again and I don't know if I should have used another method, I just went back to what had worked for me in the past.

I had trouble getting it properly hydrated.  Even following simple instruction on the shroomery.  I ended up with slime and mush. Not to mention the only contams I ever had in a jar.  Shame cause the stuff is abundant and cheap where I live.

Just make sure you adequately cover the lid area with foil. Also make sure there is a buffer between the bottom and the glass. Should be fine. U want to be certain that no additional moisture can get to the grain during pc. The one thing I am grateful to have spent a little money on is a large pressure cooker. I can do 10 quarts(9 widemouth) at a time. it was $100.
