pasteurization?
    #3200852 - 09/30/04 06:58 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys, I'm curious about pasteurization. I did it to my 50/50+ casing material in a pillow case on the stove and the water gets really "murky" and it feels like this might not be a good thing, is this what is supposed to happen? And should I let it cool down while still in the water or should I dump it out and let it cool in the pillowcase in a dry area, or does it matter?

Thanks. :confused:

ime caseings dont need to be pastureized or strailized becous the cakes are strong enough as it is plus there is no nutriants in caseings so its harder for contams to grow i never did that and dont get contams till the 3rd or fourth flush but its also been a while since i grew

Most of the time pasteurizing casing components isn't necessary; but sometimes peat and such has little critters in it that managed to hitch a ride and get packed in the bag along with the peat. These could be things like nematodes, fly larvae, and other bugs.

Depending on where your casing components come from, you may want to pasteurize them to kill the hitchhikers before casing. A few minutes at 160F is enough to do the trick.  :mushroom2:

Pasturizing doesnt kill though..just knocks stuff back for . I sterilize all my stuff just in case any spores landed on it anywhere. Could I get away without? I'm sure but do I want to risk pounds of shrooms distroying my entire grow because I got a little lazy, nah. If I were going smaller I probably wouldnt sterilize it either. I dont use peat too though..

Sure it does. Very few eggs, worms, or flies can survive even a few minutes at 160F. Bacteria are another animal altogether, but pasteurization isn't meant to kill all the bacteria.
