yea it sucks when you read things that are posted by middle school dropouts.

 

I started out with the coir coffee tek. Never pasteurized anything. As long as you can produce a pure culture, add lime or gypsum to the sub, and your incubation temps are correct for bulk sub, there is no need to pasteurize anything. Most mushrooms are whats known as primary decomposers. They do not need the waste products of other organisms before they can fruit, like agaricus or king stropharia (secondary decomposers).

 

Hell most teks i have read for pasteurization arent even really pasteurizing because the temps are too high. its semi sterilization.
