After pasteurization, the longer any substrate is left unspawned - the more opportunity that some contaminate or gnat/mite/ant will come in contact with it, set up housekeeping & thrive. :mad2:

If you TIGHTLY bag a pasteurized substrate, cobweb and/or bacterial contamination can take hold.

My advice is to spawn any bulk pasteurized substrate -ASAP - after it has cooled to ambient temperatures. Doing so - increases your odds - the substrate will colonize - without contamination.
