Straw Questions.
    #1824288 - 08/17/03 11:20 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Im looking into mushroom cultivation using straw. Now i had a couple of questions, I have some of those crappy home hardware aluminium oven bag, can i pasteurize in this or should i just use my 12qt pc?
Also I want to start small, maybe using 1 or so cake. How big of a container should i use?

Thanks.

Whatever ratio you want, really. 3:1 should be fine. Buy a big galvanized bucket (make sure it doesn't leak) to do your pasteurization. Just use your roommates pillow case.

dont PC straw/poo, you will kill off the beneficial micro-organisms, just leech and pasturize

Oh yeah I didn't even think he implied PCing them, but now that you mention it... Get a candy therm and try to keep the temp at 170f, it takes some baby sitting at first but you get the hang of your stove rather quickly.
