How long to pasturize COMPOST for at apx. 160-180` F?
    #4021355 - 04/06/05 01:26 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Alrighty
I've read Roadkill's wonderful tek:
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/723303#Post723303

but it deals with horse crap. My uncle has a huge ass compost thing going on for his garden(s), and I was gonna pasturize some compost next time I go up there. I was wondering how long I should pasturize it for at 160-180` F. Roadkill pasturizes his poo for 30-40 minutes, but I dunno if COMPOST should be done any differently since it might have more bacteria or something in it.

A. How long do I pasturize it for?
B. Do I need to add lime?

Thx

1 hr should be fine...do a ph test to determine if you need lime

Wow only half an hour? I've never heard such little time for even horse poo...either way times for hpoo and compost should be the same..they suggest usually anywhere from 1.5 hours to 3 or 4 hours though..even up to 6 by some.

I'm interested in hearing from RK if he always only does 30 minutes and if thats given him any problems. I assume answers are yes and no in that order but...

Shouldnt need to add lime either.

Either tek you pick to follow, be it his for 30 minutes, or one like agars 2-3 hours or one like George Castanzas which is 6 hours...follow that tek to a "T"...treat the compost as if it were poo. You'll get some more in depth answers soon I'm sure so just hold tight if this didnt answer your questions :smile:

no problems with pasturizing horse poo for 30 to 40 minutes.

you can do it longer if you want.
