Steam VS. Hot Water Bath
    #4469969 - 07/29/05 05:39 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I once read that there were downsides to pasteurizing Horse Poo with steam. I have a homemade "pasteurizing" box, you know, a Wagner power steamer screwed into a Rubbermaid cooler with a threaded spicket.

Anyways I was planning on hydrating the poo by submersing, then drain, then steam pasteurize 1 hour. I am looking for some criticism. I Just would rather get an opinion on any possible downsides of steam VS Hot water bath.

The wall paper steam may have been mine...I've rented them, but I found you could buy them for less then $50...

I think the soaking in water has to leach out some of the nutes- that's how you make fertilizer tea after all.....

Danger with steam is overheating it. Boil point is 212F - when steam is created.

Very true Agar.

I regulate the temp by cracking the lid open- using a cap from a peroxide bottle to keep a little gap for air flow.

A large meat thermometer through the ice chest lid give me the (inside) temp.
