suggestions for sterilizing bulk casing???
    #4188940 - 05/17/05 11:19 PM (12 years, 14 days ago)

i plan on preparing a peat/verm casing. To try to cut down on green crap after teh second flush i'm going to sterilize the casing material.
is it best to sterilize it while its dry and then add water or add water and then sterilize???
my concern about addeing the water and then sterilizing it is the loss of water while bing pc'ed

any advice or link to tek would be appreciated

Read the teks on casing. For large batches I'd use a turkey tin/foil top OR 1 quart jars PC'ed for 45 min. This way you can also keep extra jars of prepared casing material for patching.

a bucket of moist cosing material in a microwave for 5 minutes let sit for 3 minutes then do it again. You will bring the casing layer up to optimum moisture when you apply it by spraying. you should optimize the moisture before microwaving and again when you add the casing.
