dunking for casing???
    #1096051 - 11/29/02 02:44 PM (14 years, 11 days ago)

Is it necessary to dunk cakes before using them for a casing or does that just concern growing mushrooms on cakes, rather than casings?? Does it make any difference?

It is not necessary and will most likely result in contamination.

It's been done before. I remember seeing a picture of it in a grow log and because everything was clean, no contams. look around the grow log forum to try to find it.

i dunk all the time before casing and in between flushes. never get contams, but i always dunk in the fridge. i scrape off any uncolonized portions of the cake prior to casing. i like to keep my pieces in big chunks, i think it takes longer to recover if you crumble into small pieces...but if you do crumble into small pieces then you can add water at this time until you get desired moisture content. i don't get contams, but maybe it's the strain i'm working with

Ive noticed that when i dunk cakes I get much better yeilds all of the time. As soon as I birth a cake I Baptize (DUNK) in the fridge for 12 hours. Then toss in the fruiting chamber.

Also, I have dunked in pasturized straw water with equally great results.
U gotta make sure your fridge is clean and the temp isnt too cold so the water wont freeze.

Hope this helps

PEACE!
