In my opinion it's to take a load of straw outside in a large bucket, trashcan or similar, fill with warm water from a hosepipe and top up with boiling water from a kettle or pan until the temp reaches about 170-175 degrees farenheit (an accurate thermometer is a must IMO) and just leave, topping up with boiling water to adjust the temp every half hour if it's cold outside. The temp should be between 160 and 170 for about 60 - 90 mins. staw can be put in a pillowcase and weighed down with something heavy. I like this method cos it doesn't clutter up the kitchen.

If you are doing smaller amounts, just chuck it in a large pot of water and simmer at 165 for an hour.

Check out the bulk cultivation faq for great info on pasteurisation.
