Sterilizing poo in crockpot
    #4494491 - 08/04/05 12:46 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I was thinking about using a crockpot to pasteurize horse poo - my local thrift shop has about a half dozen and they are $2 each. Obviously not useful for large quantities but I am going small scale. As I understand it, the main problem is that even on "low" most crockpots get up to about 200 F which would be too high for pasteurization. In my research I can across this which seemed like a pretty cool idea so I thought I'd just throw it out there.

Crockpot thermostat

Seems like a pretty good approach - the basic idea is to wire an adjustable thermostat from a table top fry pan into the crock pot. Then just test it to get a good pasteurization temp, throw the poo in and leave it for a few hours.

if you are going small scale, just a pot of water on the stove is all that you would need. small batches are easy enough to do on the stove. why put yourself through all that extra?
which poo tek are you using?
peace

I'm still up in the air on which poo tek to use. Its taking an inordinate amout of time to get spores so I have been reading and planning. But probably rye berries spawned to hpoo and then cased with 50/50 in trays.

I kind of liked this crock pot approach just because once I have the temperature set right I can just dump a gallon of poo in there and know its going to be sitting there at 170 F indefinitely. I could even do it overnight.

the crockpot with the temp control would work for ya no problem. definitely can control the temp. don't know if i would go to the extreme of pasturizing it overnight though. once at temp an hour or two should be all you need to do.
after my first pasturizing, it was easy to figure out where to set the stove temp to achieve that 165-170 degree range. of course i am doing larger batches than you could fit in a crockpot. using a 40 qt pot and 3 large autoclave bags full of poo at a time.
the crockpot will probably give you enough for a good spawn run though, albeit small. which is what you want anyway.
good luck
peace

I used a Crock-Pot before, but it had a setting called "Warm" [or some shit like that] that kept the mixture at 180F constantly. I also used a large Crock-Pot before, got the water up to about 190, put in the pillow case, got the water to about 190 again (with the lid on), then turned it off. It stayed above 170 for the 1.5 hours that I recommend.
