    #1307556 - 02/14/03 08:35 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

afoaf about to sterilize a few jars of birdseed. looking at a post in advanced mushroom cultivation, it said you had to use a pressure cooker, and the pot o' boiling water would not work. is this true, and if so, why not?

fractional sterilization is great if you dont have a presure cooker. i've had great results with using popcorn and fractionalized sterilization.

I know someone who successfully colonized 18 birdseed jars with no contams without a pressure cooker. He put the birdseed in a pot and brought it to a boil. Then he let it sit 12 hours. Brought it to a boil once again and let it sit for another 12hours. Then he drained it and wrapped it in a towel for 10 minutes. Packed it and steamed for 1 hour. Moisture content was just right.
