Bleach/Lime to Pasturize staw and manure
    #1853753 - 08/27/03 03:25 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I done alot of reading about using bleach and lime along with hot water to pasturize staw and manure. However there seems to be alot of variation and questions as to weather this works at all.
Part of Visions Lundry basket Tek from mycotopia.net:

"The next step is the preparation of the substrate that will be spawned with the grains prepared in the previous step. We will be using straw with some added manure in an open aired environment (more air = Less Contams) so pasteurization will be used to knock bacteria and microbe levels down to a suitable level. Pasteurize your straw by submerging it in 160 degree water; Mix in little by little, as you add the hot water, approximately 1/5 cup bleach and 5 large heaping tbs. Hydrated Lime(I use Hoffman's) to approximately 1/5th bale straw(one basket worth). As you add water to your straw the straw will compact so keep adding and pressing down till you used around 1/5th a bale. Make sure all the straw is submerged then cover it and let soak till it reaches room temperature. Once water has cooled to room temp poke holes in your bag or pull your drain plug and allow to drain WELL then spawn."

So it sounds to me like all you have to do is start with hot water and add lime/bleach, not maintain a constent water temp, just let it drop to room temp.
I'm looking for specific methods/formulas that have worked for you other growers out there.
I also bet that if this method will work on straw it will work on poo.
Has any one out there ever tried a solely chemical pasturization? I know that this may not be plausible, but maybe.
