Straw Presoak
    #4304941 - 06/16/05 08:21 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Pre soak straw for 24 hours....Is it nessecary before pastuerization at 170 for one hour? I don't see it in the majority of the teks, but have read it in the past. I have read that straw harbors trich, even after pastuerization, But i have not seen many of posts with people having tremendous trouble with trich in even just straw alone.

Thanks

Yes it is necessary, not as a precaution against contam, but to hydrate the straw..

Yea you definately need to presoak it. It hydrates the straw so it pasturizes evenly. 2 hours in hot water is adequate, 24 hours isn't neccassary and probally leaches too much of its nutes.

Straw is only vulnerable to trich in the absence of air exchange after it is colonized.

if you weed whack the straw or otherwise break
it up well, it will be exposed enough to absorb
adequate moisture during the pasteurization.

if you want a great way to cut down on contams
look at combining the bleach and lime teks into
one by adding them to your past water.

nearly contam proof.

if you're using straw logs...you can give them a
good dunking right when you start to see pins
too.
