Peat moss casing layer question
    #4021287 - 04/06/05 01:07 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Well today I have to case 4 quarts of rye. Im planning on casing the rye directly with a 60/40 peat/verm mixture. But i have a couple of questions about the process if someone could help me out.

1. What should my water content be of the casing layer? Just before saturation?

2. How would i go about steralizing the casing layer? should i pop it in my microwave for 10 min?

Thanks alot. this is my first grain attempt so your help would be greatly appretiated.

1. the casing layer should be applied dry and then misted to the point when it glistens with water (aka near saturation)
2. the best way to sterilize a casing layer would be to put it in a jar or and autoclavable bag and pressure cook for at least 30 minutes. microwaving is not sterilization but more like pasturization
