How to steralize casing layer????
    #1601683 - 06/02/03 04:14 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

How do you steralize a casing layer of just vermiculite and water?

Will simply placing in tin foil and baking for 300 degrees F for 40 minutes do it or is that overkill?

My friend places his casing material in a large microwave safe container. He adds a generous amount of water, covers the container and then nukes it on "high" for 5 minutes. He then gives it a good stir and cooks it another 5 minutes. Done.

I put Jiffy Mix into a pan and cover with tin foil. Put in the oven and bake at 350 for one hour, then put it in the fridge for 1 hour. When I lay down the casing layer, I mist it with 1:10 H202/h2O until it just releases water when you squeeze it.

My last batch was ruined when i used old vermiculate that had been in the bag for a couple of months. Green mold everywhere. From then on I pack it in jars and PC it. Then let it cool.

bah. i bet you dont even have to sterilize it... if your technical it shouldn't grow shit provided it is non nutritive. If you have cakes that aren't quite 100% or something though it could introduce contams... i think microwaving that shit is the best way to go. hassle free, only takes 10 mins
