Wouldn't this be an easier method of pasteurization???
    #4409370 - 07/15/05 10:15 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

After looking at a few of the teks on pasteurizing h-poo, I've tried to think of a way to combine the different elements into a process that would be less messy and time intensive. This is what I've come up with: just dump your dehydrated h-poo into your Rubbermaid (or whatever container you're using), hydrate it, use a stick to mash it up and break up any clumps, add some vermiculite/straw and mix this is thoroughly, then put the container in a closet set up with 3-4 space heaters for a few hours.

This way you could avoid having to do small loads of poo at a time in your oven or pot, you could just do it all at once. You wouldn't have to bother squeezing water out of a pillowcase filled with h-poo and then let it sit for a few days to dry.

It wouldn't get hot enough to be technically pasteurized..

3 or 4 space heaters in a closet would probably get you a fire.

Water transmits heat more effectively than air. You could pour a combination of boiling/room temperature water unto a heavy duty rubbermaid, directly on top of your poo, and pasteurize that way. Monitor the temperature with a meat thermometer, and you're good to go. Keep adding boiling water as needed, to keep the temperature up.

Space heaters in a closet with no real insulation sounds like a bad plan to me, besides, I don't see your poo reaching pasteurization temps in this century with that method.

It would take FOREVER if it ever worked.

Indeed. I was looking into bulding a steam pasteurizer, but after a bit of testing the substrate hardly reached temp in an hour, it was pathetic. Water > air for sure, can't beat it.

Agar's fridge/heater tek is about the best solution to pasteurizing via air that I've seen, but have yet to test it.

This IS THE THREAD that uses a DEAD FREEZER. Works like a champ, as it is insulated better than an oven & air tight.

Its not the closet thats the (biggest) problem, its the huge mass that your trying to pasteurize. With agars method, there are only 10 pound bags or whatever, takes less time to heat up alot of masses that small, then a huge mass greater then all of the bags put together, PLUS the mass of the bags.
