why pasturize?
    #779824 - 07/27/02 10:07 AM (15 years, 10 months ago)

ok, here what im thinking. if there is no need to pasturize when spawning outdoors, then why not just spawn you poop/compost/straw outside, in a bucket or something, wait till its colonized, then bring it inside to case and fruit? Then you dont have to waste time and effort on an extra step of pasturization.
I think this maybe what i have to do because im about to spawn some shit with casings that may be contaminated, and im afraid if i do it indoors, that potential contamination may get a foot hold in the uncolonized poo and ruin it. im hopeing that doing it outside might prevent that from happening.

Seems to me that you could do that but I bet your overall yield will be hurt. Because if you pasteurize it, then you are making the good bacteria active and getting rid of the bad bacteria. If you dont pasteurize it then the mycellium will have to fight against the contams to colonize and it wont have the benefit of the good bacteria. If you are worried about contams already present, maybe you should go with moes outdoor tek just to be safe. But if you have the chance pasteurization is always better.

I think all that is pretty accurate, sorry if it's not perfect though.
