white stuff growing on my poo in storage bin
    #11192450 - 10/06/09 11:18 AM (8 years, 11 months ago)

so I have a rubbermaid bin filled with horse poo that I store for multiple grows.  It has been sitting in the bin for about 6 months now, and I opened the lid for the first time in about 2 months and there was white stuff growing on top that looked like mycelium.  The poo is pretty dry, but there is a small amount of moisture in it. 

any ideas to what this white stuff is, and will I be alright to pasteurize, then use the poo?

You should be fine to pasteurize and keep going.  Growing bacteria is less resilient to heat and thus more susceptible to PCing than it's dormant, endospore-protected stage.  Just toss out the white stuff, and go back for the rest.  As always, be careful when dealing with bacteria; some of it can go airborne, and can be very hazardous to one's health.

As to actual ID, pics are necessary.
