Cakes too old to case?
    #1043804 - 11/11/02 04:41 PM (18 years, 3 months ago)

Alrighty.. a little bit of this is me being impatient, but bear with me.. (straigt pftek with b+ and tasmanian)

I birthed 7 cakes on Friday, by saturday night I noticed no pinning, anything, so I took one of the cakes and dunked it.. due to my newbie-ness, it contamed and I threw it out.. the other 6 are still in the terrarium, with 1 fruiting ok.. one decent size shroom on it's way (prolly 3 more days) and a couple other pins.. the other cakes show no pinning whatsoever.. now I believe the reason this happened is because I birthed the cakes prematurely (they were full colonized, but just barely.. I didn't wait for them to get really white and fluffy).. so my question is if I give it a week, and I still see no pinning on the other cakes, are they too old to crumble up and use in a 50/50 casing?

i birthed 5 cakes about a week ago..only 1 so far is pinning. Today i crumbled 2 into a casing and left 3...i guess if theyre not pinning it couldnt hurt. casings are better anyway (IMO)

If you are going to case them you want to do it before they dry out any more and before they pin. If they start to pin before you case them then the pins may begin to rot under the casing material and this will almost surely lead to contamination. So if you are going to case I would do it now.
