Cooler pasteurization questions
    #7077087 - 06/21/07 10:04 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I just pastuerized some coir and coffee in a ice cooler, first I heated 1 gallon of purified water to a boil and poured it into the cooler, my thermometer read around 150F for around 40 minutes and then began to cool a bit, at this point I poured in a gallon of tap water that I had boiled to what seemed to be a hotter temp. my thermometer read around 155F for an hour or so, when it began to cool slowly. I left after this, but I'm assuming temps stayed above 140F for a good while after I did.

I have a few questions...

1. Is it ok to use tap water to pastuerize or should I do it again with purified water.

2. Is there a difference between purified water and distilled water, as far as using them in LCs and such goes?

3. How long can I leave the stuff in the cooler without opening or draining it before I use it? What is the typical procedure used to do this? move to sterile room and open, or just kinda do it non-chalantly, I'm assuming I need to be somewhat clean since it's not colonized, yet I've never pasteurized my own bulk before.


thanks everyone

1. Yes, you can use tap water.

2. Distilled water is made by evaporation, purified water is made with filters. Either will work well for LC's

3. Over night is good, just wait till you need it (7-14 days being the max)

tap water is fine unless you live in a 3rd world country lol


2. Is there a difference between purified water and distilled water, as far as using them in LCs and such goes?

i havent seen any diff have tried both numerous times too


3. How long can I leave the stuff in the cooler without opening or draining it before I use it?

yea pretty much what i do is after the hour and a half or so for pasturization i take it out wring it out so i get about the correct moisture content,let cool,then spawn the following morning.
