pasteurization question
    #806364 - 08/09/02 07:32 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

many posts that i have read begins with the soaking of DRY dung. why does it have to be dry if you are going to soak it???? why not use any dung dry or wet?

Prepare to turbo boost.

naturally wet shit stinks.

shit that has had a chance to dry out has been processed by bacteria, whose population would compete with the mushroom mycelium. they die off as the shit dries out.

naturally wet shit stinks,

and naturally wet shit stinks

beyond that, you will want to be able to control the moisture content of your finished substrate. if following a proceedure, then the proceedure may have a lot to do with this, and while it may be educational to experiment. . . if you want to try something new, then you should follow the published proceedure untill you have it down. then experiment, and by all means post your results.

I think like tchyted said, you want to try and control your moisture content as much as possible.Deffinately smell and also bacteria content is impoertant, certain bacteria will thrive in overly wet dung, so you don`t dry it, pasturize it and get left with the negative bacteria's lyiong dormant in the dung.
Also when you dry it, it becomes more workable in that you can break up the lumps better I`ve found.
Also it smells cosier.

Derrayld and out of control

i was told it was to let the urine in the dung dry out too, killing off amonia and bacteria
