Question on tubs/casings
    #11233393 - 10/12/09 04:02 PM (8 years, 13 days ago)

Howdy-

So I've never done a tub before and am getting ready to.  I have the bags of colonized rye berries about ready to go - and the monotub is all set up....

But there is one thing I'm not clear on.  Whats the best way to layer everything?  Do I do verm on the bottom, then the layer of rye, then the casing layer on top of that?  Or am I supposed to put a layer of coir/coffee or something between the berries and the casing layer?

IME this is what I do
CCV(cori, coffe, verm)
Bottom to top
CCV
spawned sub
CCV
spawn
CCV
spawn
CCV
Then a light frosting of spawn on top
I wait to 100% colonization then case
This is a layer system works great for me.

I have understood frosting/icing as a of bulk sub which covers all exposed grain and provides a flat surface level so is colonises evenly :confused:. If you have grain on top how can you tell if its done :sad:

I layer as well, however for the last 2 layers I double up on my spawn and top substrate layer.

I know it is done when the thickest (top) sub layer is completely colonied.

I don't layer, I just mix it all together evenly. Works great for me

Thanks all....

So I guess it's a good idea to layer it all....  then once fully colonized go ahead and add that last casing layer?

And the casing layer isn;t even really necessary right?
