pasterizing large amounts of casing soil
    #2854722 - 07/03/04 08:46 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

High shroomers!

I have a question about casing -
what would be the best way to pasterize larger amounts of casing soil enough to cover aprox. 2x1 square m of surface? Microwave is to small so I thought of doing it the same way as pasterizing compost - mix the peat and vermiculit, put it in a pillow case and dunk it in a container with hot water for 1 hour (sealed), then let it drain and squeeze all exess water out, then add microwaved-nuked grounded limestone and this is it. You know any other way to do it?

thx to all!

I myself have never pasteurized a casing layer, always sterilized them.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?

AFOAF has always just done multiple mircrowaves until the needed amount is reached. It might take 5-6 microwaves to cover that much area if you have a regular sized one. But microwaving doesn't require as much time. AFOAF has been microwaving for 10 mins lately.
