Microwaving casing soil, anyone have details?
    #3898478 - 03/10/05 05:43 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I have heard alot about sterilizing casing soil (50/50 peat moss and verm.) in the microwave. It is my understanding that it must be microwaved for five mins. stirring halfway through. Does anyone have any more specific details on how it is done? or any further recommendations? Thanks for the help
Chris

You just mix up you 50/50 and place it in a microwave for 5 min like you said and stir. then nuke for another 5 and let it cool then use it. but there is a tek with this in it. let me find it for ya.

Every time ive tried to microwave sterilize verm it heats up very quickly and loses lots of water content. Food for thought.

Put in excess water then! Think proactively. or you can invest n a steamer its always worked real good for casings. and you dont lose water content nor do you have to add more water to compensate for the loss.
