  • Running too hot

    Good morning so I went from a compacted base layer which was not letting sit through to now struggling to get my HotBin to run bellow 60 degrees Celsius. I had taken the lower part of the base layer out added bulking agent and paper / cardboard and mixed in. I also used a bamboo pole to push down to create chimneys to pull the air back through from the base. I then added a first lawn cut and now it is all Cooking away between 65 and 75 degrees Celsius for over a week. Is this okay or is it just killing off all the bacteria? I have fully opened the top vent but that has not reduced the temperature as advised by HotBin. Many thanks
