Dry Pasturization...

BH did that and messed it all up.

I'm not saying that it won't work, i'm just saying that there's a better way...lol

Just use a pillow case....And use a rubber band at the end to seal it.

If worst comes to worse....

Gallon ziplock bags - poke some Holes - Stuff with straw.

Works great...Only prob. is letting it drain over nite...Water will collect and sit...But I've done it and it worked well.

Everyones results vary tho...

BH later relized and admitted that it probably wasnt the way he pasteurized, but the high heat that ruined that spawn run. And his last grow he loaded into bags and PCed, so definatly didnt do open water pasteurization.

I do it all the time, though I dont seal the bags, I use a rubberband around the neck thats tight, but loose enough for air to escape. You can use a sealed bag, but the sealed bags can sometimes float..if you use a rubberband, after a minute in the hot water, itll force all the air through the rubberband and the bags sink and stay submerged better. Plus no dealing with sealers or anything. Heres my new growlog, that part of the process is documented..

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
