too much humidity?
    #1110572 - 12/04/02 06:06 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

there are so many post on this and so much varied information. I was wondering if anyone knew for a fact if this was possible for cakes. I thought that they thrived off high humidity?

Everything written above this line is completely false. I am terribly bored and write here to pass time. I do not participate or support any illegal activity.

No, you can't really over saturate your cakes with humidity alone.  At least I haven't been able to :grin:

I agree it is very hard to do so.  At 99% humidity if you double end case all should work fine.  But where you will find problems is at 100%.  Dropplets form all over the cake hampering its ability to breath.  Bottom line is if you have droplets on your cakes  it will soon catch up to you.  If you don't have droplets then everything is gravy baby :wink:

All the above information is for microscopic research only! 

Life is short so make a dent in the world so people can tell you were here!

Excess humidity will generally cause stunted shrooms and reduced sporulation on both cakes and casings
