"I mistakenly called you Big Blue Eyes!" Phew.... I'm glad that was a mixup. Too funny!!! I thought you were addressing me and figured that BBE had to mean something.... what I didn't know. I'm not up on all the texting shortcuts since I don't text so I looked online and it said it stood for barely breaking even, Bible in Basic English, Best Boyrfriend Ever, and Before the Buffet Ends so I was sorta sitting there scratching me head.

Default New guy saying Hi & Thanks.

Thank you all so much for posting your tests,failures, & successes. I've learned so much through reading this post. Awesome.
I have started my wash rice & am looking forward to the next steps, should be a lot of fun!!!!!
I was wondering about a lid for my bucket & found some Gamma Seal lids. They're pretty cool the lower part snaps on a bucket & is threaded for a lid. Got mine at Home Depot for around $7, & see they're also online. A little tight to get onto the bucket, but figured I could stand on them to install, which worked pretty good.

Thanks again for a great post.
Best Regards,
Jon

Hi Biigblueyes & All,

Thanks again for putting this wild stuff out there for all of us!

I put the 10/1 ratio of milk in yesterday afternoon.....now I have a jello like substance with no liquid. Kinda like custard with some trapped bubbles on the side.

It'll be interesting to see how it changes (or not) over the next 2 weeks!!! Mad science at it's best & that's for sure.

I had thought to use coffee grounds instead of wheat/rice bran. Any opinions on this?

Thanks & Best Regards to All,
Jon

Some of our mad scientists have used a variety of media to grow the microbes, so in that sense, coffe grounds would be great. But coffee grounds isn't as inert as some of the other stuff. (I'm thinking caffeine, fairly acid Ph off the top of my head) You won't know if those things are a plus or minus until you try them.

I say Go for it! You might end up with super-energized microbes!

Thanks for the prompt response Biigblueyes about the coffee, I appreciate it.
I was thinking coffee grounds since it has carbon in it (as in the carbon/nitrogen ratios involved in composting) & that it has had hot water percolate through it......it should be relatively sterile.
I'll be taking your advice & giving it a go, nothing to lose, eh?

The rice wash water/milk mixture has separated & the curds? are on top & there is liquid below. Looks like this project is a go.

I've also started collecting IMO with rice in both my worm bin & some soil/leaves from a stand of bamboo. Wooooohooooooooo! Too much fun for a grown man.

Thanks Again & Best Regards To All,
Jon

Experiments are fun. What do you have to lose? A little rice and a little milk? You have more time invested in it than money, and you're getting entertainment out of it, and perhaps (gasp) knowledge. An extra benefit is that maybe you'll get something usable too.
