Best way to sterilize/paseurize small amounts of poo/straw
    #3594065 - 01/07/05 04:42 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

In reading up on the teks, it seems the preferred method to prep small amounts of [horse] poo/straw is to put it in the oven covered in foil for 4-5 hrs at 170. It seems this would be less hassle than maintaining 170F water on a stove top. What do you guys think is the best way to prep small amounts (ie enough to use for a few casings)?

Oven bag, foil bag, autoclave bag, tinfoil pan - covered with tinfoil in the oven.

Be sure to use a thermometer - inserted into the bag neck, as oven dial temps can be OFF - as much as 15 / 20 degees.

That sucks.. The main reason i wanted to do it in the oven was so i didn't have to buy a thermometer. Anything worth doing is worth doing right though.

I've never done poo in the house for fear of smelling it up. I have a few cheap styrofoam coolers. They're kind of hard to find because most places only carry them seasonally (in the summer). Put poo + straw into a pillow case and pack it into the cooler. Go to the tap by your washing machine, turn the hot water on and let it run for a few seconds. Fill the coolers 1/2-2/3 of the way. Get the largest pot you can find, fill it with water and boil. After it has been boiling rapidly for a few minutes, take everything outside. Top the coolers off with the boiling water and put the lids on them. Stays hot for hours and hours. Never had a problem with this method, mang; simple and a few coolers is enough for many casings.
