Improved Bucket Tek (Bucket PASTEURISATION) * 7
    #19907089 - 04/27/14 02:30 PM (4 years, 11 months ago)

I have recently made some improvements to the bucket tek. With these modifications it is now quite easy to maintain proper pasteurisation temperatures using a bucket. This tek will pasteurise enough substrate for a 66 quart mono.

You will need:
1 - 650 gram brick of coir
2 - Quarts of vermiculite
1 - Handful of gypsum
2 - 5 gallon pails
1 - Meat thermometer 
1 - Plastic lid
2 - Large pots for heating water
1 - Sleeping bag or thick blanket

I had not originally planed on writing this so I do not have pictures of every step at this point.

Place one brick of coir into a 5 gallon pail and break it up using a knife or flat head screwdriver. If you stick the knife/screwdriver into the side of the brick you can easily pry the layers apart. Once the coir is broken up add 2 quarts of vermiculite and a handful of gypsum. Then mix it all together well.


Take two large pots and fill each one with 5 quarts of hot water. Place them an your stove and turn it to high. Use a meat thermometer to monitor the water's temperature. When it reaches 170 remove it from the heat.

Pour the water from pot #1 into pail #1. Then place pail #2 into pail #1. This step will help your substrate maintain its temperature threw out the process.



Now pour half of the water from pot #2 into pail #2 and mix it in well. Now add the other half of the water from pot #2 and mix it again.

At this point the temperature of your substrate should be in the mid 160s. I like to check it in the center and on the outer edge of the substrate.



Now set a timer for 1 hour. Put a lid over the top of your pail and wrap it in a sleeping bag or thick blanket.



When the timer goes of open your pail and check the temperature again if you did everything correctly your temperature at the outside edge should still be above 140. You can check the temperature in the center as well but it will always be slightly higher so there's really no need.


Take off the sleeping bag and lay the lid on loosely while it cools for several hours. Once cool you will still want to check the moisture content before you use it. Mix your substrate well and pick up a handful. It should be somewhat fluffy and no water should drip from it. Give it a good squeeze and a small short lived stream should drip out. If your substrate is to wet just squeeze out the excess water.



well so far so good. these are the two subs I made using this tek for the first time.

I have now used this method several times with different amounts of substrate. I have also used it with additives like coffee and manure. So far so good.


A few people have now successfully used this method with manure.

Never really thought about that!

Im in the process of hooking up the heating element from a crock pot, into the bottom of a large pot.
Hopefully the resistor i have will be able to set the thermostat temp to 165, then set bags of whatever in it and walk away haha

Your method seems to be a cheaper alternative to maintaining temperature than something I had been thinking about. I was going to make a koozie for the bucket out of reflectix. The stuff works really well at maintaining temps. Heck I still might do it, but I like your method a little better I think. Seems to be cost effective.

I had originally been thinking about some type of heating element but this just seemed so simple.

Keeping temperature in bucket is very easy. I suggest filling bucket with as much substrate as possible as it will cool down much slower.  When i pasteurize pellets i always end up with bucket filled with substrate. I usually put them in big plastic box and temperature doesnt drop for even 2 degres celsium actually. Its easy, you just have to play around a bit to figure out details.

I also cool down substrate in cool water because the temperatures wont drop with full bucket. (i dont drop substrate in water ofc, i put it in trashbags and trashbags go in water).

I just don't like to fill a bucket much more than halfway with substrate or it gets a bit hard to mix it up without making a mess.

Is there a way to use this tech with crumbled cakes. Is there a link to a tech that explains how to do this?

it's as easy as you just typed it, crumble your cakes to your bulk and you can follow and spawning tek, just remember it's about 3 cakes to each qt of grain so if a recipe calls for five qts of grain spawn you want about 15 cakes


--------------------

It doesn't matter what i think of you...all that matters is clean spawn

You can use this tek to prep your substrate and then use crumbled cakes as spawn. I don't know of any teks specific to using cakes as spawn but you could use a standard mono tub tek and replace the grain spawn with cakes.

Thanx guys. The write up is a bit shabby but the method seems viable so I will likely clean up the tek a little later on.

Lol at first I thought you had snuck in my garage and seen this


Wrapped an old towel round the bucket and sealed in tape I had no use for.
Never bothered insulating the lid, just flipped it lid side down.

I just used this for my first mono tub I'm doing. Dude good thinking mudafuka this shit was simple simple. Poured my water about 165 then wrapped my set up with two 3x15' pieces of padding from under my old carpet, one over the top, the other around the sides to hold everything together and put a big rock on top. an hour later I was a little under 145, nice water content.
