poo compost question
    #3238866 - 10/10/04 01:07 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Just found this site. What an amazing collection of experience and knowledge. Defiantly a resource a plan to utilize quite frequently. So I have a few questions, sorry if they ones which are frequently asked or completely obvious in their answers.

Here they go......Friend of mine has a large compost bin containing 60% fresh horse poo, 20% coffee grounds & 20% spent brewers grain which has been composting for about 20 days. The temp. of the pile has been in the 150-170 degree range for the past 10 days. He was wondering if a hot water pasteurization bath is necessary before using this as a substrate. Inoculation of the substrate using WBS planned in the next 7-10 days. Seems that if it is already in that temperature range the compost should be ready to use as is. Would it benefit to a chopped straw addition (pasteurized of course)? Also not sure of the PH, but due to the coffee I imagine that it is on the acidic side, should he add lime. If so, in what approx. ratio.

Thanks in advance for the time,help and expertise given in answering these questions. ~BLR

The compost is still "cooking" with lots of heat being generated. Will this kill the spawn also? How should he keep the compost temp. down to the optimum range for substrate colonization?

I personally would pull it out and pasturize it, then spawn it, and then case it. no sense in taking chances, however, like blacklabrat said, you could test it first. If you have problems, then start pasturizing it.
