My intentions are to do a Poo/straw TEK I found a good straw tek but I still need Poo.
Can someone post me a link with a easy pictoral Poo Tek that includes the Sterilization of poo also?

Kitchen sinks must be one of the filthiest places in an entire house. The P-trap below the sink collects all sorts of garbage, which feeds bacterial colonies that thrive on the sides of the pipes. They survive all the soap, cleansers and bleach we dump down our sinks all the time. Not a good choice for the pasteurization bath.

I only gotta drive matbe 10 minutes and theres many farms filled with Cows and Horses...I guess I'll wait till it gets a bit warmer where iam and then go askin for Poo.....
Store bought is loaded with fungicides to prevent mold. Get yourself some good'ol horse/cow poo from the field. It's kind a funny when you call somebody up and ask them if you can gather poo out of there field!

There is nothing wrong with store bought composted cow manure. It works great for mycology. As a matter of fact, it's all I use. I live in a big city and don't have easy access to horse farms. It doesn't matter a whit if it has fungicides or not. In fact, the fungicides might help prevent contamination in your bulk grows. One needs to bear in mind that fungicides don't work on mycelium, only spores. Nobody shoots spores into their manure. We shoot spores into our agar or grain spawn, then place the live mycelium into our compost/poo. I use a combination of composted cow manure from the nursery, coir, coffee grinds, seaweed, worm castings, a SMALL amount of chicken manure, and all is cut 50% with verm. Lime with hydrated lime to balance the PH. Pasteurize and use!
