sterilizing casings?
    #429897 - 10/19/01 12:14 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Is it neccessary to sterilize the vermiculite, used in the casings or can you just toss it in there, provided you keep sterile surroundings during the procedure?

I thought that you didnt have to sterilize verm as it has no nutrients so you do not have to worry about contams.

verm is nonnutritive, so it shouldnt hold contams (thus, no sterilization "required")
