Do i really need to pasturize worm castings?
    #3925277 - 03/16/05 02:02 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I ask this i used it in about half my jars that im workin with right now and i did pasturize, its just a pain in my ass.

For worm castings, is it really worth the hassel, or can i skip that step.

I will always PC it, but i dont want to cook it in da oven any more.

Thanks. BTW 11 days in and read my sig, its a sad sad day.

If your PCing the castings, then pasteurization isn't necessary. IMHO, pasteurization is better for stuff like castings, compost, straw, and the like.

THanks, that makes me oh so happy. Im very OCD and want to try and avoid all contams, but if i dont have to pasturize, i PC for 90 min at 15 always, i think i will be safe.

BTW i used worm castings in about half, and not in the other half, they make a HUGE difference. They are growing so much faster.

I've been looking for info on them, not many use them, and I'm disapointed in this. Nice to hear your having nice results, are they still colonizing? Post in basic cult or PM or something when you get to fruiting stage, I'd be interested in hearing back on how they turn out. I shall be pasteurizing some with my straw shortly and seeing how they work for myself...

I had a little bit of worm castings left over one time, so I just threw it in a quart jar and PC'd with my grain spawn....

later I G2G it with the rest of the jars.... colonized no problem...
still sitting around I haven't decided what to do with it..lol

But that is with tyvek of course... If you were to spawn sterilized castings and have them exposed to the open air at any point, it might be another story

just a couple thoughts.
