No point in shaking them... It does nothing but damage the mycil and cause it to take longer to re-colonize... Just follow the PF Tek exactly, be patient and you will do fine. :wink:

Grains, are another story... Them you should shake when they are about 20-30% colonized.

Like stated above there is no need to shake a cake, even if you tried it probably wont do a single thing. I use popcorn and just shook yesterday to distribute the pieces of mycelium
