Compost pasturization
    #1066564 - 11/19/02 04:48 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

A friend is trying to pasturize compost for Portabella cultivation. He read that you're supposed to moisten the compost first and then steam pasturize instead of a hot water bath like you can do with dung or straw (So you dont lose all of your nutrients?). Is this accurate and what is the best way to prepare the compost?

How much compost do you want to do at one time?

I think you can still do in in a water bath but if you want to use steam search for steam, composting, vicks warm mist humidifier, etc. Basically you use a warm mist humidifier to produce steam which you pipe through a cooler containing your compost and use a dimmer switch to control the temp.

I hope this helps.
