Sterilization of Casing?
    #1841021 - 08/22/03 04:21 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Okiedoke everyone. I have, yet, another question. My friend needs to sterilize his 50-50+ substrate(peat moss, verm, oyster, lime etc) and he wants to know the best way to do it. He doesnt want to pasturize it and he cant find bags that he can sterilize in his preasure cooker because none of them will withstand the heat of this cooker. Can he bake the substrate? If so, how should he do it and if not, what are your guys' suggestions on how to sterilize it. You havent let him down yet, so hopefull you will save the day once more with the knowledge he needs. Thanks guys.

Microwaving casing is pretty popular. 8 min, stir it up with sterile instrument, 8 min again. In tupperware.

Keep the lid on IMO.

depends how much water you put in the casing mix, if you've added a little too much than nuke it without the lid so some moisture will have a chance to evaporate. It'll get really steamy in there too (a good way to clean the microwave i found out)
