is that pasteurizing in a crockpot is a decent idea for small batches.
but leaving any electric appliance like that running
while you are gone from home
is a fire risk.
i'd hate to burn down my own house
then get arrested for whatever was found in the ashes.
i'd more likely use a crockpot overnight as i slept
and stick a smoke detector nearby just in case.
our late friend though was trying to turn
his necessity into a virtue,
claiming 'a good friend of ralphster' [name dropping] sez so
and how shorter times left maggots,
how commercial growers do buttons, etc.
all pretty much irrelevant
if all he wanted to do was share his method.
nope, he was looking for an argument,
count the number of exclamation points-
Some Commercial growers pasturize their substrates for 3 days!!!
