 Biogas starter mixture

The best way to start your biogas experiments is with a sample of biogas bacteria from an already existing biogas digester.

£8 British pounds for supply in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

 How to use the starter mixture

  • 1. Fill your container with a suitable mixture for digestion. It is best to start with a small container such as a large spring water container.
  • 2. Fill it with water and horse or cowdung, preferably fresh. Don't use chicken manure to start with.
  • 3. Leave it for a day or two with the cap closed. You are hoping that there is no oxygen in the mixture before you add the starter.
  • 4. Add the starter mixture you have received to the container and make sure that oxygen cannot enter (with the cap closed).
  • 5. Keep your mixture warm at a temperature up to 37 degrees. Look out for vigorous bubbles coming off. The gas that is in these bubbles should soon contain methane.
