manure/straw, that is enough for 1 tray at a time , I can set the oven
at 150 degrees or 175 degrees and was wondering which would be
the best temp/time .
150 drgrees for 2 hours or 175 degrees for 1 hour , I'm leaning towards
the 175 degrees for one hour and thought I should get an opinion from
someone else who's done a good bit of pasteurizing before .

Definately hang them up... if you set them down moisture will collect on the bottom and contams can be drawn in and excess moisture is more favorable for contams than mycelia growth... If the pillow cases just seam to keep dripping and dripping make sure you squeeze them so they stop...
Also spawn as quickly as possible after it stops dripping... 1 qt grain or seed spawn should be good

Beside having proper water content ,sometimes the myc can be reluctant to jump off from one substrate to another at first..To help give a smooth transition u can spike your PF mix or grains with a pinch of it's future substrate. This type of training can shave 2 days off colonization times..After having tested Stamets theory in parallel grows - i can say this def helps....
Hmmmmm. Cool! I've never read any of Stamet's material. I should head to library huh? I wonder if public libraries even carry any of his material? I think Hip mentioned once doing this type of thing for introducing a clone to a new substrate material.

Lazlo it doesnt sound like you take any real precautions as far as being sanitary goes, or am i mistaken? do u use gloves, face mask etc? do you do your transfers from pillowcase to bin in open air? what kinf of environment do you do these things in? looking for a little heads up info. thanks man, preciate it.
LOL! I feel where you're comming from. I do lime/bleach pasturization for straw, all open air. No glooves or mask. This time of the year is a different story. Trich is germinating everywhere. I don't recommend using straw in the warm seasons at all. I switch to coir substrates in these months. Although, they can be troublesome also. This is were lime is key for warding off trich until 100% colonization.:D

nocc'd with a 1/2 pint brf jar
I would use like 2 or 3 brf 1/2 pints jars. Might help in faster colonization.:)
