The more I research, the less I know.

A FOF overseas is trying to move to bulk growing techniques and has asked my advice.

I've read that 90% and 10% straw and dung respectively is a good mix? What are the percentages, weight or volume? I'm guessing volume as it doesn't take a large weight of straw to fill a very large volume. What kind of straw does he get, wheat?

Here's the plan, feel free to point out any flaws or suggest anything.

#1 Get dried cow poop from a farm
#2 Get poop to right water consistency
#3 Mix 1"-2" pieces of straw with poop
#4 Pasteurize staw/poop combination in an oven bag at 185?F for three hours
#5 Clean and disenfect large (1' by 2') Rubbermaid container
#6 Lay about an inch and a half of cow poop/straw mixture on bottom of container
#7 Crumple up about 8 1/2 pint BRF cakes and spread over dung/straw
#8 Lay another two inches of dung/straw on top of the crumpled cakes
#9 Close lid and let sit in the dark until fully colonized
#10 Start to blow air through the container twice a day for 15 minutes via a HEPA filter and expose to light at least 12 hours a day

Is bulk growing compatiable with casing? Would a Jiffy mix layer over the final dung/straw layer be beneficial, or would it not add much to the equation?

Thanks a lot for any help you can provide.

Any kind will work, but wheat is preferred.

That is a bit too hot IMO. Turn that down to about 160?F-170?F. No need for three hours, 1.5-2 is plenty long enough.

Layering is OK, but it is better to mix it in.

Yes, it will help.
