AFAIK straw is not supposed to be sterilized you will kill nutrious endospores and make it useless, pasteurization only.

Read what you find  :HERE:

Suggest you sterilize WBS, or Rye... instead.

Study up, then ask questions. :thumbup:

Straw is ment to be used as an additive.

People have done just straw alone. The results were poor.


Straw is to be pasturized, not steralized.

The results werent poor. Whos were? I havnt seen anyone besides me ACTUALLY sterilize straw and inoculate it with liquid culture.

It can be done. Its kind of a pain though unless you shread it in a blender, which is kind of a pain anyways. The white tub was done with sterilzed straw in jars:



I did this just to say that it could be done. I saw no reason it couldnt but everyone gave me the same responses as you. I only did it once since its so much easier to fill up a clothing bag and do a whole ton of straw in a 30 gallon metal trash can and a hot plate pasteurized.
