So, let's say a foaf has a A/A 941 sterilizer, all sorts of differant size autoclave bags, a Thermolyne lab grade adjustable temp hot plate. Suppose he stuffs a big A/C bag with quasi/compost (dung & straw) that has almost perfect miosture content, sticks bag in the 941, sets temp at 170 F - let it build up to around 2 pounds pressure & then -- simmer for an hour.
Would that suffice to pasturize -- without killing off the good microbes.
Object is to do away with the hot water, pot, simmering, lifting & draining of bulk substrate. Whatcha think?

minus the pressure part, yes..
most microbes sensitivity is not just to pure heat but as a function of heat and pressure... at 770torr you want "170 degrees, F" but at some other pressure/temp it is different.. also different organisms react differently to pressure change /temp change..
i hope that helps..
