straw question
    #655023 - 05/31/02 07:32 AM (16 years, 24 days ago)

I have cows and was wondering can I use the hay that I feed them to grow shroomies. It is not straw, but is the hay that is cut from the tall grass that grows in a neighbors field. I was worried about possible contaminates.

hay tends to have too many nutrients in it and is prone to contams. you can try it though. just make sure you pasturize it at around 200F for a couple hours.

What do I do with it? Can I just take the dried up cow patties, and steralize or pasterize them? Do I mix them with something or just use as a casing like they are?

it's easy. take your mother's pellow case and fill it with dung. put that in a pot of hot water (around 170-175). Keep it at that temp for about an hour, 2 if u like. after taht take it out of the water and hang it outside to drain over night. in the morning mix it with your spawn and watch the collonization begin. You can mix things with it like pasturized straw but just the dung will do fine.
