Bulk Straw
    #4433015 - 07/21/05 01:04 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm making up two straw casings. I'm using two 18 gallon sterlite containers. I'm trying to decide what the depth of the substrate should be. How is 4 inches? Will 5 inches be better?

Also will 4 quarts of spawn be enough per casing?


--------------------

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

4 inches would be plenty...but I'd go 5 inches.
I like thicker casings.
:smile:

4 quarts of spawn in each...will be fine.

That's a lot of straw! I'm using a 21qt pot to pasteurize it all and its taking forever.

Maybe its time to upgrade to a Thermodyne Hot plate (any lab style that goes up to 300C, no cheap burner crap ones) which can be found for 20-50 bucks on ebay (mines a 1900):


And pair that up with a 20 gallon galvanized trash can from Ace Hardware for just under 15 bucks IIRC:


Seal up the inside (outside helps too I think, I did both anyway, NEED inside though) seems with regular 100% silicone caulk and throw it on top:


And you can do quite a bit of straw at a time:


Also works for horse poo when you finally relize how much more kick ass horse poo is..



Straw works at 2-3 inches...4 inches is plenty IMO, but the thicker the better if you've got room...heres some 2-4 inchers (straight straw)..
