5l Slow Cooker. (I bought it specifically for pasteurising, it was the cheapest one I could lay my hands on at $20.) Can be put anywhere, even out in a shed (if you have power there). Put on low overnight and then you have 5 litres of pasteurised sub in the morning.

Right, I have a 4lb bag of oats, beautifully colonised. I am going to use a sub. of 50% pea straw, 20% mushroom compost, 20% 'normal' compost, 10%moopoo. Well, that's the plan. I'll sprinkle gypsum over it as its pasteurising.

 

I'll see how that goes...

That sub. ratio seems to be right. I spawned to bulk on 30/11, spawn ratio 1:1.5 (or so) and it's already fully, completely colonised. Now, all i have to do is wait. For a long time, from what I've read.

How does one's dog shake a grain jar? I can barely get my dog to wake up from a nap to go to bed. :tongue:

He bumped it off a shelf lol. He tries to kill every single flying insect that comes into his house. Being a AmStaff Rotty cross he's like an oversized bowling ball...

He will be a valuable member of the team when you are attempting to fight off fungal gnats!!

If there is any fungus left when he finishes. There is hope though, he's now 3 and calming down. Sort of...

Dont think it was in the cooker for a full pasteurisation, only a few hours. The B+ ones I did for a full 8 hours. They're going gangbusters. Plus there was a bit too much wind the hoogs were exposed to (we had a ripper of a storm as+just after I bulked it and one the next day). I was sort of expecting something like that to happen. Not all lost though, I had some on agar and 'jarred' 2 jars yesterday :-).

Better luck next time. I'll have to make do with B+ for the New Year fireworks lol.

Thanks Mikey.

I might add that I'm still perfecting my slow cookery: I now put it on high for 1-2 hours to get it rapidly (as rapidly as a slow cooker will) through the temperatures where it's doing bugger all (until the core is about 50 C) and then put it on low as I go to bed to 'cook through'.

That seems to have great results.

(I set a timer for 90 minutes so I dont forget any more... Once I forgot and it was on high for 10 hours and it was rather overdone and dry... so the compost pile got that lot)

I guess just letting it purr on low for 12 hours would be OK but if you have a timer, why not use it lol.
