black kow question
    #1339062 - 02/27/03 12:14 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

My neighbors pet monkey has obtained some miracle gro, moisture control potting mix that he sterilized in his pressure cooker and used to case 6 quarts of mycelium in a rubbermaid tub. He has also obtained some black kow composted cow manure from a local hardware store (a very *helpful* hardware store). He processed with in the pressure cooker for an hour at 15 psi also and cased 6 quarts of mycelium with that as well....does it also need to be cased with the potting mix to keep contams off the manure?

Dung is better used as a substrate rather than a casing material. Whether or not to case colonized dung is a matter of preference.

you may want to wait on the Black Kow....it may contain fungicides....I'm doing some testing with it now....but to answer the question....pasturize the dung, it will allow the beneficial microflora to aid in keeping the contams at bay...

a reply on the use of black kow.....it aparently doesnt contain enough fungicide to lill the mycelium, Mine was 'pasturized in a vaccum bag with no contact with watter...bull strength, so to speak....colonization is slow.....pasturize it properly and you will probably have much faster colonization of the material...
