how do you mix large amounts of straw/dung?
    #1428403 - 04/04/03 11:17 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

A Rented cement mixer? Would a washed out mixer be sanitary enough (not contams but rather the fact that cement has alot of chemicals in it)? Any interesting methods for mixing large amounts?? The stuff is really heavy after pasteurisation. Do you think that the straw would have to be cut in order for the mixer to work well?

Thanks, -MM

Probably 3 batches of oven bags would do it.

Suggest you mix BEFORE you pasturize.

don't waste your money on renting a cement mixer. if you want to spend that kind of money, just buy one of those spinning barrel compost mixers. just throw in your straw, shit, and water and give her a spin. mix complete.

i think the most economical way is just to buy a big trash can and fill it 1/3 of the way with your mix (or whatever amount you can lift), then shake the hell out of it and add water. if the shaking doesn't mix it up enough, take a hoe or other garden tool and stir it up and reshake.

I always used this:
"FP's 2 and 4 Cubic Yard Batch Mixers
Custom developed for the needs of mushroom growers, this versatile mixer is destined to become the centerpiece of any mid-sized mushroom farm. Using this versatile Mixer, the mushroom grower can quickly and conveniently mix media ingredients for sawdust cultivation and discharge ingredients into bags, at three to four times the rate of simple hand-mixing and bagging. With 2 cubic yard capacity, The Mushroom Mixer has been developed by Paul Stamets and a group of engineers attendant to the multifaceted needs of gourmet mushroom growers. The Mushroom Mixer is powered by a 10 HP motor which drives a heavy-duty paddle agitator and companion auger for lateral mixing. An adjustable discharge gate coupled with an interval timer allows the production manager to allocate volumes of media directly into containers. A water line with hose bib adapter is mounted for precise introduction of moisture using a timer. Separate interval and full cycle timers standardize the mixing process. Complete with remote reading thermometer. 6" casters mounted on 4 leg-stands allow maximum mobility. After rigorous testing and improvements, The Mushroom Batch Mixer has been optimized to process 1000-2000 bags of substrate per day (up to 4000 per day with the 4 cubic yard Mixer)! Sent freight collect unless otherwise arranged. Allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. Please specify voltage requirements.
2 Cubic Yard Batch Mixer MBM20L $34,500.00
4 Cubic yard Batch Mixer MBM40L $42,000.00"

But then again, I just happened fine one sitting in the closet when I moved into a new apartment.
