Question about casing.
    #1007210 - 10/30/02 07:02 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

When doing a casing can you just use vermiculite for the top and bottom layer? I have read all the diff teks and feel like my head is going to blow up. This is my pet Zombies first casing and all he has is some vermiculite to use...Also does the vermiculite have to be sterilized before casing with it?
Thank's

Straight vermiculite is fine for casing. Make sure it's soaked up as much water as it can hold first. It's not that important to sterilise it as it's just rock, so don't bother if you don't feel like it.

Yes, you can use plain Verm...  I would add water until the verm is at its peak capacity then microwave for 5 minutes, take out, stir.  Microwave for another 5 minutes, take out, stir.    Cover and let cool for a few hours. (Or put in fridgef until cool).  -----(For better results, add  Coco Coir, and Oyster Shell or Hydrated lime)
