1st casing effort - advice welcome!
    #1057972 - 11/16/02 01:04 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

Here's what i've got going right now, let me know what's right and wrong:

  Moist vermiculite bottom layer (i baked the verm beforehand to help contain contam) / 2 Crumbled B+ cakes, which didn't seem to be as colonized throughout as i had hoped (B+ is kinda slow anyway, true?) for the 2nd layer / moist Jiffy Mix top layer, which i moistened and baked before applying, covering the cake layer completely, probably an inch or so. It's in an aluminum baking pan, which i covered with a layer of Saran wrap. I placed that in a Lysol sprayed plastic containerwith a plastic lid on top, and have the whole thing in a clean bathroom (where i colonoize my cakes) in the dark. It's about 85 degrees in there, and humidity in the room itself is about 38%.
  Ok, let me have it :tongue:

Regular Jiffy Mix - i noticed yesterday that there was some discussion over the merits of the Plus type.
Major thanks to the experienced growers, by the way....without it us newbs would probably be running around the house covered in brown rice flour with black pin mold growing out of our eyes :grin:

LOL. anyway, Your casing sounds fine. You might have contam problems if the cakes were not totally colonized, but everything else sounds great.
