Pasteurize or Sterilize?
    #368425 - 08/08/01 12:48 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

After reading a million teks and trying both ways myself, I am still as confused as hell about this question. There are people who swear by both methods.

Which is best for Straw and 50/50 casing?

but WHY? I am more interested in personal experience with both methods.

I know that complete sterilization can invite contams or result in bacterial mayhem, but some swear it is the way to go. I also know that pasteurization makes straw more selective for fungi and that beneficial microbes are left over.

What method works best or worse for you and why? Let's hear it...

Pasteruize the straw (less contams) Usually sterilize compost, because pasteurizing in a pot of water leaches too many nutrients. Although right now I'm trying just leaving compost unsterilized or pasteurized, just spraying it with peroxide to get the right moisture content. So far lots of mycelium and no contamination.
