I've recently started using the Bokashi method of fermenting plant-based food scraps being as I don't have room for a good compost and my old worm bin has be de-escalated and de-commissioned for the time being... So, I've been using EM-1 infused bran to break down food scraps anaerobically, HAS ANYONE USED BOKASHI AS A WAY TO DEAL WITH CONTAMINATED GRAIN JARS? Think this would be an ethical solution if it's not too bad of a contam??

Ill pull up a rocking chair for this

I wonder if it might go better in the mushroom forums since it is talking about contaminated grain jars and that forum gets more traffic but let’s see where this goes

I have been doing some research on Bokashi. There are a lot of youtube videos on this subject. It is a fascinating topic for sure.

I went to "Contams" forum, and it didn't look like I was able to post there...

My hopefully landlord friendly setup consists of 2 food-grade 5-gallons, and a stainless steel spigot for draining excess liquid... I would think maybe pressure cooking them and then adding it, might be an option, but I read some where here that the contams could escape in the steam before it hits 15psi.

If you're worried about the spore load getting shot out of the valve on the pressure cooker before full pressure and temperature are reached, maybe throw a wet rag over the valve? As I understand it water molecules are sticky, maybe sticky enough to grab spores.

I'm just spit ballin' here.

In response to, "If you're worried about the spore load getting shot out of the valve on the pressure cooker before full pressure and temperature are reached, maybe throw a wet rag over the valve? As I understand it water molecules are sticky, maybe sticky enough to grab spores.

It could have been another Mycology based website, in the past I was lurkin' and not participating so it also could of been vaults... That wet rag idea should work, I also have a vent fan above my stove with two settings; very loud, and loud so that eases my concern as well... I'll give it a whirl...

Hmm, say it was Trichoderma, I wonder if it would still be good for diseased tree's after being ran through pressure cooker... That might make, a good future post.

Update 7 months later, super successful!
The Bokasi gave me a lot of liquid fertilizer, after the fermentation was complete, I opened it and it smell as it should and burried it in a yard that needed some bio-remediation (fruit trees near trashcans that get tipped over frequently, batteries, metals, all that other human made garbage) and it seemed to really build the soil!
Got another one going now, added in some spawn that Trichoderma had got to.

I'm sure I read recently that Actinomycetes had a special relationship with other fungi in assisting fruiting.

I googled it a little, and actually found your old post on that, thanks for the response.
