Casing and drying questions...
    #1043666 - 11/11/02 04:02 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I'm trying to get my casing to pin, I waited for it to colonize for one week, and I've been trying to get it to pin for about a week.  I've been fanning 3 times a day, misting occasionally, giving it light and the mycelium that has poked through is just turning into spikes.  There are a few browinsh bumps that look like they are trying to become mushrooms but have no caps, just round balls of stem looking material.  Is there anyway to move this along?  I wish I could provide a pic, but no cam.  :frown:  My stupid hygrometer doesn't work right (ass-mart piece o crap) but there's condensation all over the sides. 71 degrees, 2 BRF cakes.

Also, I have some ice melter that I want to use as dessicant, but the box I got it from doesn't say anything about what kind of chemical it is.  I assume it's CaCl, but I want to be sure.  It looks like rock salt with green dye on it (so you can see it on the snow).  The box says it's non toxic, but no chemical info.

Thanx ya'll.  :grin:

(a) i had similar delay problems with one of my casings and it was pretty solved with 24hrs cold-shock, although the strain in general didnt need it for sure.

(b) cant help u but if its say is no toxic, then u can make a try with one shroom only.

Thanx, strain is B+ so I didn't think I'd need to cold shock.  I dunked the cakes before casing in cold water, but didn't refrigerate them, just stuck em in a box.

I'm 90% sure it's CaCl, I think I'm just being paranoid.  I live in the middle of the desert anyway, if I have to I'll just fan dry real good and grab some silica gel shoe packets from wal mart.  :grin:

I use that ice melter stuff its mostly calcium chloride, works great.
As for your casing it sounds all right, those bumps are just knots that will become pins within a day or two; patience is a key to this hobby.
I had to wait about a week for my PR casing to start to fruit, and it did quite well.
Good Luck :grin:
