Casing without a pressure cooker
    #1000588 - 10/28/02 06:37 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

What's the best way to sterilize some Jiffy Mix without a pressure cooker? Last time I just cooked it in the oven for about 1 hr or so at I think 450, but it was kind of burnt a little. I then poured boiling water on it cling wraped it and stuck it in the freezer to cool. If this is the best way to go considering avialable equipment or do you guys have a better way to go? If this is the best tek then what temp would be optimal for not burning my shit?

casings don't need to be sterilised, pasteurisation is fine, if not better.

You could pasteurize it, you could cook it in the oven at a lower temp (say 250), you may even be able to boil it, like you would BRF. I've pasteurized 50/50+ and my casing got contaminated after the second flush. Now I gots me a PC.

Why do you say that pasteurizing may better?

casing soil (not verm or coir) contains beneficial bacteria that can help the shrooms fruit, and fight off contams. PC'ing kills them off, pasteurisation doesn't. Same as with straw.

So you are saying that peat is better pasteurized than sterilized. That's food for thought.
