Pasteurize or Sterilize: PF Jars with Poo/Straw/Verm
    #4622903 - 09/05/05 04:39 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I know that poo should be pasteurized when using it as a bulk substrate to spawn to (pillow cases, etc.). But what about using it via the PF tek method in 1/2 pint jars? Does it need to be sterilized or should it be pasteurized? Thanks.

I should have explained my plan more before posting that. I plan on using 1/2 pint jars with horse/cow poo, verm, and a little straw that was already in the poo. I mixed all of this up and put it in 1/2 pint jars with a dry verm layer on top. I plan on innoculating these jars with Ecuador spores from a syringe and once they're colonized I'll spawn them to more of the same stuff used in the 1/2 pint jars to do a double tub tek. Since the substrate I'll use for the double tub tek is pasteurized instead of sterilized, should the 1/2 pint jars I'll use as spawn be pasteurized also? I hope that explains my plan better.

why not just sterilize them if your going through with the whole pf tek thingy. the dry verm layer will help to keep you contam free in the jars. as bulk substrate the pasturization is necessary to keep some beneficials alive in the poo to help keep contams from getting a foot hold.
best of luck

What confuses me is that I would think that the dry verm + pasteurization in the jars would be better than the dry verm + sterilization because of what you said above. It just makes sense to me that two contam resistant procedures would be better than one. But if they say to sterilize than I will. I just want to make sure I have as much contam resistance as I can get.

Bump. I sterilized my current jars at 15 psi for 1 hour so I hope that will be okay. I just wonder if pasteurizing would be better since there is poo in the jars and no brf.
