2 separate Q's: peroxide and straw pellets
    #2121336 - 11/19/03 12:40 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Hello, I'm sorry if these subjects has been discussed before (i'm sure it has), but I spent the better part of the past hour using the search function of the site and have come up with nothing solid.

Just wondering what % of H202 solution is recommended for use when sterilizing grain substrates, and whether anyone has noticed a difference in contamination rates of colonizing grain as a result of using peroxide?

Also, where can one obtain pelletized straw and what is the traditional use of the product? Anyone have good results with straw pellets? I'm sick of the mess and time consuming process of chopping straw.

Thanks!

1. 10 or 12 ml. 3% h2o2 per qt. jar of grain . (but the grain needs to be sterilized first, to kill h2o2 decomposing enzymes .)


2. straw pellets can be found at the pet store, it's sold as cat litter .

If you use straw pellets as substrate, then you'll have to soak the hell out of it in hot water because its got this binder crap in it that turn to goo when you try to pasteurize it. My friend tried it a few times, but decided cutting up straw was easier and better.
Then again the stuffs not that expensive, so give it a shot and report the results.
Good Luck :thumbup:

Thanks for the info. I'm familiar with the critter country stuff but I was under the (probably mistaken) impression that it was possible to obtain real wheat or oat straw in compressed form. I may certainly be wrong.

It seems like I've heard of compressed straw without anything added, just can't remember where, so keep your eyes open.
