first time casing, and won't pin...help
    #1125637 - 12/09/02 06:33 PM (18 years, 2 months ago)

My brother-cousin's uncle-brother is casing for his first time. He has birthed cakes 2 seperate occassions with 100% success. All six cakes colonized 100% in 7 days! Left for an additional week until cased.

Conditions:
Temp:76 degrees F
Humidity: 90ish, hygrometer sucks nuts, not reliable

Cased 2 cakes per casing, waited 3 days to initiate pinning, prior to initiating pining 80 degrees F/ 95%RH, when iniated pinning temp dropped to 75 Degrees F/ 70-85% RH/ 6Hrs light per day.

4 days later no signs of pins, but casing layer is fluffy and covering 60 - 75% of casing. Water droplets on casing, but no pooling. When should I start worrying about possible overlay? I was patching at first, but mycelium was growing too fast to keep up with unless I want a super thick casing!

It's all about patience. If you dont mess with it too much it will work out. Good things come to those who wait. Just make sure you're fanning enough.

thank you for all the replies. I guess a quick question would be, How long does it take from initiating pinning and the first onset of pins assuming optimal to near optimal conditions using the 50/50 casing tek? I've read that it can take up to 14 days or longer.
