Bulk casing question
    #3796191 - 02/18/05 01:00 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

okay, I have read through the teks and couldn't find what I needed. This is how I am going to case my poo. Let me know if this will work. Opinions welcome.

I have 19qt container that is 10 inches high. so, by my formula if I want 4 inches of poo in the container the 4inches/10inches=.4 x 19qts= 7.6qts of poo. Meaning I will need 2 or three quarts of spawn to colonize it. Can I colonize the poo in the oven bag? or should I case it and let the spawn colonize it inside the casing? Also should I use verm and coir layers? or just let it fruit off the poo?

not sure on your math... youll want to pasteurize the poo then colonize in your tub. Then when its all white you add your mixture of verm/coir.

in theory that formula should work.

4inches of substrate/4inches height=1 x 19qts= 19qts of total substrate volume
or
4inches of substrate/8inch height=.5 x 18qts= 9qts of total substrate volume

the inches cancel out and volume becomes the new units. They are approximations because they don't take into account that most containers are tapered. But I like to have the volumes of everything I use before I start putting substrate together

Thanks dob
