Is it possible to pasteurize in a hot car?
    #4464821 - 07/28/05 04:01 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

This is to be taken seriously. It's been hot as hell lately, and only finally cooled down. reached over 100 a few days back. Anyhow, I was down the road an the neighbors horse manure pile, and there were quite a few rollie pollies in the composted poo. I'd rather not have to buy a metal drum and propane getup to pasteurize. In my reasearch i found that heating to 135 for 5 days was even better. I've got a few junk cars on the property. I just checked and one of the cars was at 120 inside it, and the trucks seemed to be at about 110. anyhow, i'ma going to try this and see if the bugs die. any advice?

I don't think those temps are quite hot enough. For pasturization, core temps should be at least 160 degrees IMO. I shoot for 170-175. Your method may very will kill an insect, but will not do the job for unwanted bacterias and molds.

Pasturizing is easy as pie on the stove top. Simply put your horse manure in a large pot and add some water and lime. I use a 1/4 of a cup per 6 qts of manure or whatever your pasturizing. Bring the contents up to 170-175 and then immediately shut off the stove and cover the pot with the lid. It will maintain those temps for a while. Allow to cool for a few hours and use.

Sure itll be easy. Just throw a heater in your car and get it up to 165, without letting it go over 180. Or you could do it a few other easier ways..
