Casing question
    #4638542 - 09/09/05 05:40 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Is Pasturizing a coir/ verm mix very important?

If it is, if I tolk the casing mixture, put it in a plastic bag and boiled it for 15 min, and let it completely cool off before using it.

Would that make it contam free?????

yes the boiling would sterlize it. don't think it will make a difference for the casing.

Pasturizing... [Re: backupwards]
    #4640362 - 09/10/05 02:09 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Pasteurizing=170 degrees.

Pasteurizing does not kill everything. it is used mainly with horse poo, to kill the bad stuff, whilst retaining beneficial bacteria to help the mycellium.

Sterilizing=250 degrees.

Sterilizing kills EVERYTHING, and is what we do to the substrate before introducing the cubensis spores, or to our casing mix, or to any instruments you'll be working with. Basically, it ensures that something will be contaminate-free.

Now, if you were going to do something to the casing mix, it would be sterilizing, so that no contams could get at your mycellium. That said, I think that the community is split on this one, with some people feeling that it is important, and some people feeling that it isn't. My suggestion is that you get in the habit of practicing sterile techniques at all times. This way, you'll never have to worry about there being a 10% or 20% or 50% chance that your unsterilized casing will contam. You'll KNOW, because you sterilized it.

Boiling for 15 minutes would not make it contam-free, but you'd probably be alright.

You can wet it and nuke it in the microwave too. MAKE SURE it's wet before you nuke any casing!

right depending on how much casing material is being boiled.

I myself just pasturize the casing mix when I do a batch of poo, haven't seen any reason to fully sterilize it.

ya if you use the microwave make it a lil wetter than it should be.. ive used the microwave to sterilize all my casing layer materials and have not had a problem yet.. ive even used left over casing material thats about a month or 2 old with no contams yet..  i just mix it all up in a big microwave safe bowl and when i think its mixed up enough and wet enough i cover with syran wrap and microwave for 2 min, shake it up, nuke it for 2 more min.. and if im feeling frisky ill repeat 1 more time then leave it sit out (still covered to cool) while im at work and when i get home i case..  but that me thouh.. :smile:
