WBS- Compost- Contam
    #1641761 - 06/18/03 10:44 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Let's say someone is using 6Ts compost. Mixing compost 70/30 with verm, pasteurizing in a pillow case at 170 (in water) for two hours and then squeezing as much water as possible out. After it is cool, spawning WBS to the compost 2 1/2 pints to plastic shoe box. And then to 85 degree incubation chamber. With this method there has been success 2 out of 6 times. The two times it worked were great, however someone just went to check on the two newly made (4 days) boxes and they are smelly (sour, rotten smell) green on one and very little colonization on the other.
If I had hair I would pull it out. What's going wrong? Any help or comments would be appreciated.

Hello,

Just a couple things.
1. Make sure the plastic container you are spawning into has been thouroughly cleaned with bleach and Lysol.
2. Your incubation temp is a little High - Try lowering it to 80-81 this might help.

Well good luck - Remember cleanliness is next to godliness!!!

You think 85F is too high?? In my my friends encounters 86F has always been great. Anything lower than that and you might just be slowing down the growth don't you think???

Thanks for the replies. Is it likely that the contams came from the WBS or from not pasteurizing the compost long enough or well enough? I have done well with casing WBS and lost very few jars in the colonization stage.
Next try I will go super clean.
