sterilization Q
    #2026565 - 10/20/03 08:13 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

If I wanted to sterilize a casing mix that i put together, could i just nuke it? I also read something about a 1:20 mix of mineral water and peroxide to keep green fungus from taking over. Any truth to that? Thanks.

Yeah definitely nuke your casing medium before applying it. Also make sure it goes in the microwave moist and not dry.

Sure, but eating H2O2 could cause cancer. So does the cigarette I'm smoking.

I'm assuming that nuking it alters the moisture content, whats a good way to account for that? Do you over-moisten to begin with, or add some bottled water after you nuke?

Fact- microwaving sends radio waves that cause the water molecules go to into motion..the motion causes friction which heats the water molecules.....the waves are absorbed by water, fats and sugars.
