- Use 4 cups water for every cup of dry grain.
- Add 1 Tbs. oil per cup of dry grain (2 Tbs. when cooking barley and oats). Oil subdues the foam that might otherwise rise and clog the vent.
- Do not fill the pressure cooker more than halfway. You can cook a maximum of 1 1/2 cups dry grains in a 4-quart pressure cooker and 3 cups of dry grain in a 6-quart pressure cooker.
