Pressure Cooking Coir
    #1157527 - 12/20/02 09:57 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I am prepering coir (bed a beast) for my casing layer. Is it alright to put it into a pressure cooker and let it reach its satuartaion point? Or would it be better to put the brick in water let it fully expand then put it into jars that would be pressure cooked. These were just my ideas for sterilisation if you have any more ideas or comments please let me know.

if it were me, i'd let it expand, make my casing mix, put it in a baking dish, cover with foil and bake at 350 for an hour.

This is by far the best method, Taken from nansnook: Dry Sterilized Casing

Fit a stiff, perforated, standoff plate in the bottom of the pc about 2 inches above the water line. Drop in a pillow case, fill with dry casing... I throw in a coffee mug to scoop the sterile casing out... fold over the pillow case, cover with a sheet of foil (to prevent excess condensation from soaking the casing mix)... I fill the PC right to the brim, slip on the cover, and blast at 15lbs for 20 mins.

When I go to case my rubbermaid bins I throw on some gloves, spray some lysol or rub some alcohol or dilute bleach on my hands, open the throughly cooled pc in a clean room and with the gloved hands grab the handle of the mug and scoop out dried casing.

Dried casing is easier to handle and spread. Once it is sifted into place, I use a cheap one gallon garden pump sprayer full of clean water to slowly and throughly soak it down.

The next day I soak it again.

And the day after that... By the 3rd day, it's getting wet and the mycelia is coming through... time to fan, make sure it gets light.

I can vouch for that. I put boiling water and coco coir in a bowl, fill up the bowl with water so it's about equal to the height of the coir. Then I nuke it for twice the amount of time the microwave takes to boil the water. After it's done immediately cover it with saran wrap. Put it in the fridge until it's cool. Take the bowl out and pour in some hydrogen peroxide and mix around. Grab a handful with gloves or very clean hands and squeeze dry and case. No contam problems yet.

So you add h2o2 to your coir before you case it, but after it has cooled in the fridge?

If you read it right, you would see that the plate or stand off barier is 2" above the water level, on top of the barrier is a pillow case filled with your casing mix, this is filled up as full as will fit in the PC.
