Sterilizing Bulk Substrates
    #310744 - 05/06/01 07:46 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

So far, i've got about 20 pounds of worm castings to pasteurize. this is easy because i heard you dont really have to sterilize it or pasteurize, but its pretty expensive to ship so im switching to cow dung. one problem, how do i sterilize 20-30 pounds of cow manure all at once? any comments or suggestions would help. i know about the pillowcase method but i want to mix all 24qts. of rye with dung at the same time. so i was wondering if i could buy a machine of some sort to do the job for big applications. thanks.

You could buy one of those huge seafood boilers w/ a propane burner. The things you cook crawfish or crabs in. Or if your a dork you will have to stick with a smaller lobster pot. If I were you I would just do a few pillow case fulls; they are only about $4 at wal-mart and thay are alot cheaper than a seafood steamer.

I think worm castings need to be baked or microwaved, they practically dissolve in water and turn into major mush from what I hear. All the nutrients get leached out.

The wet weight of all that manure is around 250 pounds, so unless you rent a cement mixer you should do it in batches. One of those large propane turkey fryers would do the trick, outside with no mess.......You must really like mushrooms.........
