Straw, castings, and some dung....3rd pasteurization ?
    #3200595 - 09/30/04 05:50 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

A friend has a huge sack of straw, worm castings and some dung. He said that the ratio was about 60-30-10

He pasteurized it and then didn't use it, he re pasteurized again, and did not use. Each time he noticed a fresh cow shit smell. He was reluctant to use it because of this smell.

Now, he is pasteurizing it again, but it stills smells like shit.

He has a couple of questions...

Is it some type of bacteria that are causing this bad smell?

Is a smelly substrate a sure sign to contam?

Does three pasteurizations hurt anything?

The main question, is should he use this substrate or throw away?
