from the FAQ:

"What is a good way to pasteurize straw and dung?

Put the straw and/or dung into a pillow case, submerge in pot with water with a weight on top at 170?F for one hour.
Don?t exceed 170?F, check the temperature frequently with a thermometer.
After 1 hour take the pillow case out and use your oven rack on top of the sink. Put it on that and let it drain for several hours. When it has cooled down somewhat , give it a squeeze, as hard as you can. Then fluff it up and leave on the rack to drain/dry out a bit more.
After it?s cold (might take several hours) you can spawn it."

From my experience -

Put it in a pillow case and run water THROUGH the pillowcase to fill the pot to where the entire case can be submerged (usually with a weight on top). This makes the water penetrate all through the shit/straw/compost. Take the pillowcase out and heat hte water to around 170 (160-200 is fine, 200 is where ya start to get too high). When you know what setting leads to wtaer being 170 degrees, and the water is 170 degrees, put the pillowcase in and weigh it down. Wait 15 minuts before starting the 1h30m timer. Ths makes suer it's EXPOSED to the pasteurization temps for the right amount of time.

Wroks for me..

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.
