I got horse shit and now what?
    #618031 - 04/25/02 05:00 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)

I live near a place that boards horses and ask the man if I could get a container of shit. So I went a filled a wheelbarrow full of it and now how can I pasturize it for colonization?
Can I do it in microwave and if so how long? 20 minutes?
Or is there another method?

hi.... gregre

You want to dry the horse poo out first.
Then you put some in a pillow case.
Tie off the pillow case.
Put it in a big pot.
put purified or mineral water in the pot.
get a candy thermometer.
turn the stove on and get it up to 160 to 170 degrees.
make sure by checking the candy thermometer.
this is called pasturizing. ....don't go over 170 degrees.
do this for 30 to 40 minutes.
after you are done.....let it cool down.
then ring the pillow case out into the pot.
after some good ringing out.....throw the pillow case in the sink to drain.
leave in there for a hour or so.
Keep the poo water....you can use that for your water mixtures....for like cakes or grains.....the added nutrients of the poo water is good!
Now that the pillow case is done draining after awhile....open it up and check it.
It should be moist.....not runny.....hand squeeze it out if you have to.
you can wash your hands later if you don't like icky stuff....doesn't bother me.
Get some large alum bread pans from the store.....they are like 2 for $1.79.
Fill the bread pan with 3" to 4" of the poo.
make sure to let the poo get cool...after it is cool.....then continue.

Take a PF cake and put it in a food processor...and hit the start button a few times.
break the cake up into little peices....don't over do it...or you will get putty.
If you don't have a food processor.....break the cake up by hand.
You can spawn the cake into the poo that is in the bread pan.....mix it up really good....only a 1/2 a cake is needed per pan.
If you want.....you can spawn with Grain, Birseed....etc.
Doesn't have to be a BRF cake.
Cover up the pan with Alum foil after you have mixed in the substrate with the poo.
Take a fork and punch little holes in several places.....like 9 places in the Alum foil on the top.
Stick this in the incubator......and you should see growth in a day or 2.
After you get the whole pan of poo colonized you can case it with a Coco Coir casing or any casing layer you want.
I tryed without a casing layer it did ok.... casing the poo is better!

The above was copied and pasted.....others have asked....lolzz

You will love horse poo after you see the rewards!
Good luck!

OH! Thanks bud!..... This horse poo I got was the old stuff from underneath. I know that shit is potent and would like to do that, but I'm going to try "At First", by cooking a small amount in the mic and do a small cake of poo with the strata and experiment.
I will try your method also. I know you tried that one(pillow case), and it worked for you. I like to play. Even if it grows something weird.
I know that this pile of shit grows shrooms and I have enough to bring whatever micelium that is present back to life. I also took some different samples from around the pile just in case I can't get that method of retrieve to work...

You should try some pearl oyster mushrooms on store-bought cow manure. That shit takes off!!!
My Pr's are going crazy on the shit...

I kinda know that the horse dung from the center of the pile is kinda sterile 'cause of the self generated heat from bio breakdown. Just like mulch piles.

Thats all I do is casings. I can even grow wood loving shrooms in cases of sht.

Where can I get worm casing? Home Depot? Sportings Goods Stores?
I don't want to pay too much.

I can't wait to see what happens...!
Thanks again
