Skippy's SBP Tek looks so relatively easy and fruitful, why don't I see more people using it? Are there drawbacks/weaknesses? I haven't tried it yet, but i plan to in my next casing.

IME store bought manure does not perform as well as the real deal. I have tried 2 different types from 2 different suppliers. Both times yields were less than experienced with true manure (or straw). It does work and I even spawned it right out of the bag on one occasion with no pasteurization or contamination. I cannot recommend this method though, better safe than sorry (pasteurize it). It also tends to turn to a mud-like consistency, so be sure to add plenty of vermiculite.

I cannot guarantee you will get the exact same product I ended up with, but most likely you will have better results if you use "real" dung or straw. But if you have no other source of bulk substrate then go for it. I had relatively "ok" first flushes, but that was about it...

Edit: One kind I bought looked like heavily composted manure (basically really rich dirt) that had rocks in it (some were as big as a golf ball). The other looked like sandy topsoil that had sticks and various other organic materials mixed in. Hardly what I would call a good substrate. But for less than $2 a bag, what do you expect. I just don't see how they call that manure. Perhaps 1% of it or so probably originated as manure, as for the other 99%, who knows where it came from...
