Yes, I am just doing it now. I was searching to see if anybody had done it before. It seems people are really sterilizing casings and poo/straw in the microwave, i.e. boiling them up rather than true pastuerizing.

The key is to match your substrate volume/weight to your own microwaves power setting. I have filled a 4.5 litre tray with about 1.5litres of straw/cow poo. I poured on water at 170F and mixed it up. It dropped to about 140F. I microwaved on high for a few minutes which brought it up to 160F. I then set it on its lowest setting for 5 minutes, it came out at 159F. I put it in again and got it to 165 on a slightly higher setting. I figured it may have been cooling due my constant temperature checking. I put it in again on the lowest setting for 15 minutes and the temp was still around 165F.

The key is to figure out how much substrate will match the power, I was lucky and hit it first time. If on the lowest setting it is getting too hot you simply add more substrate. If it is too low, remove substrate or go to the next power level and test there. After a few goes you should have it perfected and be able to put say and autoclave bag with 2kg of poo in on medium low and know that it will work perfectly.

sounds like an interesting tech w/ the microwave. The nuking and having the temps way high will kill all the bacteria so it makes sense that it should work like a charm. how do u take the temperature though? best of luck

No, others microwave on high. I am saying to do it on low so the beneficial bacteria is not killed. I am nearing the end now. I will spawn tomorrow and start a growlog.

With a probed digital thermometer. I can open the lid slightly and put it in. After a few 30min sessions it was always between 160-170F so I no longer have to probe it and risk contams. After a while you get the feel of the temperature with your hands.

You can use sterilized poo just as a substrate, the beneficial bacteria will be killed. Pastuerising give the benefit of both. I just found some very aged poo while searching for shrooms, ended up with a huge bag. I have never grown on poo before, only straw. I want to see if the potency does increase.
