How much IMO should I use in a 5 gallon batch? I’ve been using 1cup / 5 gallons. I brew 25 gals at a time; I end up with a bag of rice at the end of the brew period, is this normal? When making IMO2 should the rice ‘dissolve’ into the solution?
the amount should be fine and in fact might even be a bit of overkill since in the LIMO we are propagating the microbes ….the rice is normal wile some will dissolve there will be a bunch that do not ….its best to make LIMO out of IMO3 cause propagated IMO (IMO3) has all ready gone through a process of propagation/activation and is better suited for LIMO then the hibernated IMO2
Thx Dagoofman. I live in the city and don’t have a good place to make IMO3. I may try this fall on my community garden plot after the growing season is over. This last batch is very sweet smelling and I suspect that I’ve used to much and will cut back on the next batch.
