Here’s an idea: create a bulk substrate pasteurizer with a discarded Richard Simmons Steam Heat Cooker (manual here) and a couple of used bins from the Sally Ann. This ended up working way better than my old wet pasteurization method: ie. simmering in a a tub of water on a propane burner. With that the temperature was hard to control and manure substrates were always over saturated. With the RSSHP™, the substrate came out at perfect field capacity (just like it went in) and it cooled to a usable temperature much faster. I suspect less nutrients are lost in the steaming process, and I bet Richard Simmons would agree.
