I do 4 halfs at a time. Takes me 6-8 weeks to use them up. On crap weather days I can 2 batches...

i like the idea of using wort from grain vs. dme for pitching whole starter into wort for the high krausen or no stir plate starter.

i presume the canning makes it good indefinitely (at least a year?)

As someone who never looks forward to canning this all steels like a PIA. Until I picture myself pouring it into a sanitized glass gallon jug the night before brew day, shaking it, pitching yeast, putting on an airlock and having a beer while I weigh and mill my malt.

I just remove the rims for storage anyway, they are not needed.
Now that you have a pressure cooker you can sterilize medium for growing mushrooms.

To grow mushrooms you want to sterilize the medium (cooked grains usually) before inoculation so that no harmful fungus grows with them.

rookie mistake...last 3 quarts guess i didnt have lids on tight enough. lost 1/2 of wort in one, and 1/4 of wort in other two.  i was paranoid of tightening lids too much.

oh well lesson learned.

 Dumping the pressure on a pressure cooker while autoclaving medium is not a good idea.  The liquid inside of a jar can boil over if one removes the pressure too quickly.    The pressure is what is keeping the medium from boiling.
