Microwave sterilization of casing mix.
    #1629728 - 06/12/03 09:13 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I want to case with either straight verm or verm and peat. Which is a better way to go for a first time caser? Also, can the casing mixture be sterilized in the microwave... if so, how long should the mix be microwaved to ensure sterilization? One final question, should the casing mix be soaked ahead of time to activate contaminant spores and then sterilized?

Verm/peat is MUCH better than verm alone.  Also casing medium must be moistened before nuking which is the preferred way of sterilizing casing medium.  Just nuke it on high for a few minutes should be fine.
