ziplock dunking?
    #1075046 - 11/21/02 10:42 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Well first i'm trying to figure out if it is good to dunk b4 i birth, i've heard arguements both ways about it helping and not, but i suppose it couldn't hurt anything right? what do you guys think dunk or not for first flush?

heres my question about dunking though, since all my jars have holes in them i was wondering if there is anything wrong with dunking/coldshocking in a ziplock bag, anyone tried this? i tried searching but couldn't find any info on it...

any help would be greatly appreciated...

thanks

You don't need to dunk before your first flush, if you made the substrate right in the beginning, the cake has all the moisture it needs. Just birth your cakes, and if you don't see pinning after a few days, then cold shock. What I do with my casings is just put the foil over it and set it in the fridge over night. For some reason I'm feeling some deja vu. Hmmm. Anyways, Good Luck!

I have had better results when dunking before birthing. Hell you have nothing to lose. I dunk and cold shock at the same time and have excellent results.
I don't see why a ziplock bag wouldn't work, I think I've seen it in a post or a faq around here somewhere.

As long as the cakes are submerged and the container is clean you could dunk it in anything.

If you're using a bag straight from the box, I wouldn't worry. But if you're paranoid, you could swab it out with alcohol.

Done it, works well, just fill the bag half way up with clean water, pop them in there, ( and yes, if the bags are NEW and never opened, they are clean ) leave them in the fridge overnight and go.

Don't touch the cakes more than you have to or they will bruise, before you seal the zip lock, remove the air so the cakes stay submerged under water.
