Stearilizing/pasturizing 50/50 casing mix
    #3631476 - 01/15/05 04:41 PM (16 years, 3 months ago)

I did a casing using 50/50 tek (peat + vermiculite} and as an experiment did not sterilize/pasteurize the mix, just used straight from the bags. WBS was the substrate and they came out fine, did not contaminate which leads me to wonder if this step is really necessary with these casing materials. The biggest cause of green mold seems to be from making the casings too wet, learning what field capacity really is seems to be the key to success. Please note that this is just an observation on my part and I am not advising anyone to leave out this step (pasteurizing/sterilizing) the casing mix just wondering what others have experienced leaving out this step.

Cool man. GJ. I dunno, but I'm pretty sure someone has done what you have before, and their skrooms came out fine.

Though, I think I'll microwave my 50/50+ for 5 minutes just for the hell of it.
