Sterilizing Vermiculite in microwave
    #3071114 - 08/30/04 11:00 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I am going to try a casing or two using verm as the casing layer.I am going to sterelize in the microwave.How long should I nuke the verm to sterelize and how long for the container (it's a 4" x 5" gladware) ?

7 days without waves makes one weak!

Watch out Verm can catch fire in the nuker. At the very least it can melt thru a plastic container FAST
Verm gets super jot very quick in the nuker.

Verm straight out of the bag is almost perfectly Sterile anyway.

Verm in manufactured by heating up mica type rock under 1400 deg heat and then cooled on a conveyr, dumped right into bags.

I never have done anything with verm. Never had any real problems.
Unless I left the bag open around the house for weeks with the top open.

What it is, is what it is my Brother.
It is as it is, so suffer thru it.

Yeah man ,like Fucknuckle said the verm will get lava-fied really quick in the microwave. You have to add water until it just past full capacity before you nuke it and make sure you do it in quick burst while you are watching it closely.
