Pasturizing straw and poo-- a primer
    #999815 - 10/28/02 01:29 PM (18 years, 9 months ago)

I have not come across this yet but it's probably out there somewhere but I thought I would share it anyway as One has had good luck with this.

One has been pasturizing the straw and poo at the same time in the same bag all mized together. One finds that the straw takes on some of the nutritive value of the poo water and that the whole thing is already mixed together, no combining later.

Just pasturize at 160 for an hour and let it drip dry for a day or even longer. One has let a bag of this sit out in the sun for a couple of days and when one was ready to use it, turned it upside down and let the moisture redistribute for an hour or two then just put it into the fruiting bins. One wanted it on the dry side because one then brings the moisture content back up to field capacity with 50/50 water & H2O2. The H2O2 of course helps kill off allot of nastys and dosen't hurt the rye spawn (what One spawns with) one bit.

One hopes this helps someone and if anybody has heard of doing this somewhere else One would love to learn of this becuase One might accidently learn something.

Seems to me that using H2O2 to rehydrate defeats the purpose of pasteurizing instead of sterilizing. When you pasteurize, you are leaving behind "contams" that act to ward off fast-growing more harmful contams. You also leave behind some microorganisms that are beneficial to mycellial growth. By adding H2O2 you are more taking a step towards sterilizing and when you sterilize, you are leaving the substrate open to many unwanted contams.
