Sterilizing Casing
    #555111 - 02/18/02 06:42 AM (22 years, 18 days ago)

Just curious as to how you guys sterilize your casing.
I'm getting tired of running the pressure cookier just to sterilize casing mix.
Is it possible to do this in the microwave? Lets say one had around 20 cups of wet mixture in a microwavable bowl...
how long would you microwave this, or would the micro EVEN work?

Does this dry out the casing mixture? or do you just make it a little wetter.

Horse dung eh :smile:  That must make your place smell REAL fresh.  Hehee.
I'm sure the same method would hold true for peat/verm/lime casing mixture then as well.

Does microwaving it for this relatively short period of time cause a lot of the water to boil off?

Thanks for yer reply
