Adding cow poo to casing
    #2675642 - 05/13/04 10:14 PM (14 years, 14 days ago)

Today I mixed cow poo and vermiculite together and pressure cooked at 15 psi for 1 hour. I mixed the vermiculite in to the poo to make the poo not so dense. I want to mix this with my casing substrate to add extra nutriets and hopefully bigger and more potent mushrooms.
I'm not sure if this is a good idea however. One reason im not sure is that I feel it may be open to contaminates. I think if this is a bad idea. I will probably just use a single cake casing inside of a plastic cup to test it out.

Yeah test it out bacause you are really sterilizing that way...It works both ways but you might just pasturize and get better results
I used to sterilize and had good results also

don't case with it :confused:
well try with the small one if you insist but not good idea.
instead crumble up the cakes and use it as spawn, mix in with the
shit/verm, let incubate till fully colonized and case with a non-nutritive
layer. btw adding nutes to a casing not only opens up to contams but
completly does away with the idea of casing to begin with, it's there
to add water nothing else :stoned:

yer wording is confusing. casing and substrate is two diffrent things. like i said you want a non-nutritive casing layer. you can use it as a bulk substrate and crumble cakes ect. like i said above but wtf is a casing substrate?

by casing substrate i mean the substrate im going to using in my case. The casing material im using is 50/50+. The substrate I colonized with EQ's is a whole wheat flour/verm

wow. still confusing. i get it though i think >by case you mean rubbermaid, bucket, what have you.

so yeah it'll work, crumble the cakes mix in real good with the shit/verm, cover again and put back into dark place for a couple days, when fully colonized, case with 50/50... fruit.

poop is really contam resistant ime but i pasturize not sterlize.

:stoned:
