baking compost
    #2152745 - 12/02/03 08:28 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

why is it necessary to bake the poo in an oven bag versus just putting it in a pan and baking it that way and adding some DI water after the process is complete?

The reason the compost is done pre-moisturized in the bag is because the water needs to be sterilized as well. You can theoretically boil the water and then add it to the compost in a sterile environment but it would be more work and open you up to contams. I'd say just stick to the tried and true methods especially when you are first starting up.

this is how i do it (luckily i sent it to myself a while back, so no re-typing):

colonise mycelium on sterilised WBS.

pasteurise straw* in a pillowcase in a bucket on the stovetop: 170F for 90min. take it out, and drain really well - at least 3 hours, so not even a single drip comes from the corner. now you're ready:

wash a tub out. wash hands properly. wear a face mask. sterility not essential, but cleanliness is. open the WBS jar. with a cleaned spoon or fork, scrape / cut it until it's all separated.

put a layer of straw in the tub. then some wbs. then some straw. then wbs. etc all the way to about an inch from the top of the tub. compress it down with your fists, then cover with tinfoil, making sure there's not too many frayed straw edges. take a clean fork, and make some holes in the tinfoil about every inch or so, to allow air exchange. put a (clean) heavy object on top, but not obstructing too many holes - I use a flowerpot with a couple of tins in it.

stick it somewhere dark for 7-10 days. no need to incubate, as it makes its own heat. don't even look at it for 3 or 4 days. when the top's all white, apply casing layer, cover with clingfilm, and leave to colonise casing layer - about 4 days later it's ready to fruit!

hope this helped
