newb dunking question
    #1003634 - 10/29/02 05:48 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

my friend's robot has a myco bag that is 99.9% colonized. he plans to put this in a hyda-pod once it is done.  should he dunk and/or cold shock it first?  :confused:

yeah, dont dunk it, you may introduce contams.

if its a cubbie, no cold shock is required - however it helps a lot of times. put it in a bag and seal it well - your fridge is the paradise of antagonistic microorganisms!!! you dont want your mycelium contaminated before even you see any shrooms!!! :smile:

The idea of dunking is to make it last a little longer after you see the last mushrooms. When you pull a half oz of mushrooms from your cakes, it really takes the moisture out. However, I have never tried this.

Best of luck,

Steve

I have, I've dunked it and cold shocked my cake, and then I pulled the cake out of the bag and put it in a terrarium. You can see pictures here.
