When sterilizing a casing mix in the oven, how long will is typically take to reach the necessary sterility? What temperature should i use?

Cheers

Microwave is much faster for sterilizing than the oven, 5-10 minutes is all you need.

Oven will take at least an hour, takes time for the core to reach correct temps for sterilization.

Want my .02? Pasteurize your casing mix in the oven, 160-180 for an hour or so. I prefer to pasteurize casing mixes but that's another topic. Just go microwave it it's available.

Alright thanks man. I just bought foil containers since they were cheaper than the microwavable ones, and I don't mind waiting.

Cheers
