When do you add ingredients to pasteurize coir?
    #8792499 - 08/18/08 09:52 PM (10 years, 13 hours ago)

I want to make up a brick of coir using the paint strainer method.  My question is this, if I mix the coffee grounds and gypsum to the coir prior to pasteurizing wouldn't I be diluting the ingredients with the paint strainer sitting in the pot of water for a couple hrs during pasteurization?  I don't want to use jars so I am forced to use either a pillow case or paint strainer and it seems that I would the coffee and gypsum would leach out from the coir into the pot of water.
Please give me you comments.

Mix the ingredients together, adjust to field capacity and then load into jars for the pasteurization.  Nothing leaches that way.  For small amounts, jars or plastic bags are the superior pasteurization containers.
