drying your pastrized straw?
    #2095014 - 11/12/03 02:05 AM (13 years, 26 days ago)

i have done this time after time and i never get the right moisture content. i let the pillow sacks hang dry for 24 hours, and yet i still get it way to wet and the colonization goes really slow then eventually stops or goes bad!
is there any sure way to get the right moisture content when doing this any methods are welcome.
and my second ? i see in these grow logs and pics of these awsome casings that have tons n tons of pins real close together. mine dose not look like that. i use str8 moist verm, and i patch the white parts as days go on until it looks pretty even, but my pins are 1/8 of what i see in these posts and when they do grow my mushies are pretty far apart, and not a dense flush y is this? am i using the wrong casing material and if yes what do you guys recommend, and is there any special prep for it? thanks guys for any help u can give

Just make sure you squeeze as much moiture out of the straw as possible before hanging it up to dry. My friend likes to wring it out in small clumps at a time with clean hands and then put it into a fresh pillow case. You can always use more straw if you are having colonization problems.

IMOA a coir\verm mixture works much better than straight verm.

I had the same issue. Straw/compost would be let to dry, spawned, and the growth would occur for a day or so, then totally stop.  My solution? Put the bag containing the pasteurized straw over a sink on a fridge rack, put a pizza-sized cooking sheet with holes (or whatever, the rack from your pressure cooker should work) on top of it, and a 25lb Olympic weight on top of that. Left it like that overnight. Works wonderfully :smile:

I put my oven racks over the bathtub and cover those with window screens. Then I take my pillow case and set on one until it stops dripping. Then take out all the straw and lay evenly on the screens. It's ready for spawning in an hour or two.
