substrate wetness
    #3084160 - 09/02/04 08:23 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

If this is not suited for this forum , I think I will find out soon enough.
It concerns the proper wetness and how I finally came across it.
I was pasteurizing my substate in a pot of water at 175 degrees(horse poo) for an hour and then , when cooled, pouring that into a pillow case to hang and drain. When it was cool enough I'd take a handful at a time and squeeze out the water so I could have a nice mass for a bulk grow.Too time cosuming.
I tried wringing but that was too hit and miss for me so I put the pillow case in the washer at home and putit on the spin cycle for a little while. Works great and saves lots of time too. It even speeds up the cooling off process.
Like I said this may be in the wrong forum but I figured this would be OK. Peace.

Cakes should love poo. Hand squeezing should do the trick for them. Or,tourniquet type squeezing with a baseball bat will work just as well.
Getting the moisture right is sooo important. I left a last batch of pans with just simple hand squeezing ,forgoing the spin cycle, and ended up with a great big nice batch of green goo. Last time I do that.

Just let it drain overnight.
