dungsubstrate: Boil or PC?
    #578848 - 03/14/02 04:18 PM (16 years, 11 days ago)

When using dung as part of a substrate in a jar ala PF or MMGG, is it essential for the jars to be presure cooked or can they just be boiled as BRF jars can?
any help would wel... help.

dung by itself need not be pressure cooked or boiled, pasteurization (160 deg F/1hour) is prefered. This is how to prep dung if you plan on mixing it with spawn (colonized grain or brf cakes). The advantage of doing this that you can convert a couple of cakes or jars of grain into a large amount of colonized dung.

If you are simply adding dung to a cake containing BRF or other such ingredients, the dung will not change your sterilization method. If you are getting away with boiling now, you should have similar success with the added dung. I do however, recomend a pressure cooker over simple boiling for the sterilization of any type of cake or grain. But if you are just boiling now and like your success rate, then added dung shouldn't change it much.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.
