Trash Can bulk Substrate
    #1293976 - 02/09/03 05:29 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Alright, the bulk substrate method of puttin a metal tub on all four burners is an alright idea, and if you have the room and means to do so than it is great... But me I am tryin to compromise a little bit more... I was wondering if this could be done correctly, I have never tried bulk substrate, but I think this would definatley work with a little bit of tweaking... Ok, well take a metal trash can ( Drill a hole in it about 3/4 the way up, and put a candy thermometer in it, then seal around it) and set it in the tub, but the pillow cases full of substrate in, and be sure to put some towels under the trash can to keep from warping your shower(just in case). Then fill it with steaming hot water from the shower. While doing all this, have some water simmering on the stove in a big pot, and get the temp to about 180-200 degrees and pour it in with the the trashcan, and get the temp to 180... And then put the lid on... ok, Now my questions.

Q1) If I did this, would it stay 180-160 for an hour or so, if not, could I just check the thermometer and add hot water accordingly?

Q2)Would anyone know how or where I can find a balancing chart for water tempatures?
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance.

The idea has already been tried but it does work.  Way to use the old grey matter!  You were just not the first to think it up.  Good job anyway!  :cool:

Another method if u dig around is similar: fill a icechest (i couldn't even do this as it was too conspicious so a couple of smaller styrofoam containers were used) with boiling water (check temp periodically, but leave it closed! and it will generally stay with ~10 degrees--ymmv, the more you open the more the temp will drop) and then pastuerize using the ice chest.

(You can even germ endospores in the icechest, (soak 24 hours), then drain, then fill it, then drain, then prop the bag (i used tshirts but hey,) with coathangers/hang it somehow, and voila)
