How stupid is this idea?
    #3650351 - 01/19/05 09:47 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

on a scale from 0-1,000. How stupid is this?

It is freakin' cold out and I was wondering...if it was like freezing temps out. Could I prepare a small bulk while outdoors using maybe a fresh bag of verm, straw, and bottled water and putting it in a small rubbermaid w/ some holes (filter patch maybe?) or somethin'. Throw my cakes in there, close it...and then maybe put that container in a larger closed container. All this w/o sterilizing (though maybe I'd pasteurize the straw)...could I bring it inside and get no contams?
or could I do a casing outside w/ a fresh bag of verm and a fresh bag of jiffy mix and all the rest outside w/ sterilizing?

Is it stupid to think I can use mother nature as a huge frigid glove-box in the winter?

I think the endospores and contams found outside in nature are still present in these frigid temperatures, they're just dormant. I believe once you brought them inside and introduced them to a warm climate you would start to have problems. I'm not certain of this. I'm just thinking with logic here and have no real knowlege or experience to back this up so take it for what it's worth.

yeah i doubt anyone does, I was thinking that too...that there might still be some spores out and I'd have problems when i bring them inside but...i dunno' An even if so...i don't know if they'd want my straw and if 75F is where they want to be.

I want to try this w/ at least one cake...mine justs started fruiting so I might try this in like 3 weaks for the hell of it.
