So i just pasturized some hpoo in the oven with oven bags. I dont know why, I have done this dozens of times and it always comes out right, but I put way too much water in this time.

I need to dry this out and the best thing I have on hand for the job is some good chunky verm.

I dont need much, excess water has been draind out and there is not just a ton of poo, maybe 10 lbs (with excess water, i weighted it) I'm thinking a couple cups of verm per bag should do the trick.

I know people DEC and stuff like that with cakes with untreated verm, but is it ok to add untreated verm to pasturized over hydrated poo to balance the water content?

I surely wouldn't do that here at Contamination Central. Maybe bake it out in the oven first, before mixing in?

With DEC, it's in contact with well established mycelium. In poo, it's more vulnerable to contams.

Ok so now I'm thinkin put it in a casarole dish, cover with foil and bake at, what 400F for an hour or so and mixing with my poo?

Does that sound like it would work?

sounds like a plan. Maybe see if anyone else has thoughts, but that's what I'd do. If ya do it, I hope it works! It should.

I had some contammed verm recently, cheap shit from a bargain store, so I bake it all now.

I agree, baking the vermiculite would be a good idea, just to be safe.

You could also, simply, squeze out any excess water to get it to the right moisture level.

I may just squeez. As it has cooled it has soaked up a lot of the water, and a lot has leaked out.

Haha, i took those bags out and there was an inch of water in the bottom.

which given displacement is not that much.

More water in substrate = larger fruits right? to a point.

I have more spawn material right now than I know what to do with, space is my limiting factor, I may just try to grow some boomers.

Oh and thanks to you all for your thoughts and ideas. I will render the final verdict tomorrow!

I agree with Hip.

And poo that is too wet won't colonize. Field capacity moist past. poo is best.
