Default Canning wort

Has anyone canned unfermented wort? I have looked around the net and not found anything about it.

There's a ton of info. You need to pressure can your wort (some people don't, but botulism is scary)

https://byo.com/stories/item/434-canning-yeast-starters
http://www.maltosefalcons.com/tech/s...ort-ahead-time

Essentially, if you have extra from the mash, you can just dump it into your mason jars and pressure can them. I did 14psi for 20min.

If you're using DME, you can either boil the DME with water and then drop that in mason jars, or just mix the DME with hot water in individual mason jars (do the math for 1.038-040 in each jar) and then pressure can.

I have 12 mason jars in the basement with canned wort from DME... best thing ever. No excuse to not make a starter.

Thanks for the links. Never saw those in my searches.

I canned a gallon of a red IPA wort from a recipe I am playing with. Only did a water bath canning, as I was under the impression that wort is acidic and wouldn't need pressure canning. Do you pressure can just to be safe, or is the wort not acidic?

pretty sure its not acidic enough and without pressure you cant get the temp up enough to kill botulism, thus you will die.

Hm, I wonder if it could be acidic enough though. Use a decent amount of sauermalz or lactic and I bet you could get the PH low enough to be safe, and if sacch can handle a sour mashed Berliner it would probably be okay with that. Might cut into the effectiveness of your starters, though.

Isn't there a Mexican drink that is basically unfermented wort?

Also, a local company called Boneyard is now selling unfermented wort marketed to dogs. It's called Dawg grog...non-alcoholic.

I'm sure you can can it.

you can can it, you just need a pressure caner.

You could acidify it to make it safe for water bath canning. This most likely would have a negative impact on yeast health. If you wanted you could neutralize the acid bringing the pH back to approx 5.4 but honestly buying a pressure cooker is easier, they are not that expensive, and it opens up other areas of yeast ranching that sterilization is needed. It should also be noted that the botulinum toxin is destroyed by boiling. If one were to use water bath canned wort which I would not recommend atleast boil it prior to use to destroy any toxin that might have developed.

I know lots of us pressure can wort for starters. Having it at room temp ready anytime you want, is priceless. There is some debate in the sugar and acid content.
