Humidity with Casings, question on teks
    #1132919 - 12/11/02 02:38 PM (21 years, 6 months ago)

Hiya, long time reader first time poster, or something like that. I am getting ready to begin fruiting my cakes and I have decided to just fruit the cakes with no casing while using perlite as the humidifier. I was wondering if I choose to do a 50/50 casing with another set of colonized cakes, would I have to use a humidifier to get a low enough humidity for the casings, or is there a way to use perlite and lower the humidity enough for use with casings as well. Sorry if the post is a little word, thanks for all the advice in the past, present and future:)

well u can use the seran wrap tek by crabbyass search for it in the growlo. casings need 95+% RH to introduce pinning. after pins u need 85-92%RH since the casing layer provides moisture.

the supposed deal with perlite is that you don't need to worry about humidity at all provided the perlite is properly hydrated.....then it's just a matter of temps and o2 exchange....

I don't get why you would want to use a humidifier to lower your humidity. If anything it would make MORE humidity than perlite will. Just lower to the proper fruiting temps and see where you are......

well the actual deal with perlite is its really hard to control humidity at that 85-92 level and usually perlite gives u 95+% RH which is good for cakes and not casings. but a tub of perlite can be used but one would need to have a hygrometer to kind of at least get a sense of where the RH is even tho hygrometers are usually unreliable things they can be calibrated check the FAQ's.
