Knots after 2-3 days in the FC -- good progress and humidity? (pics)
    #11340861 - 10/28/09 08:41 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

Hey all,

My buddy is seeing knots on his BRF cakes as of yesterday, which is 2 days after rolling the dunked cakes and placing them in the Shotgun FC.  He was a bit worried about humidity because the digital hygro seemed to only go up to 88/89 percent RH in the FC.  The same hygro was placed in a damp washcloth for almost an hour for the lulz, and it ended up reading only 91 percent.

All the cakes look great and have gotten nice and white in the FC, and there seems to be a large number of knots on all of them after several days.  Would this be a good indication that all is well with the humidity?  He was almost worried that there were too many holes in the FC because some are only an inch and a half apart, rest are about two or so.

Being fanned 3 or 4 times a day, and being misted thoroughly 4 times also.

Thoughts?  Thanks guys!

everything is going great. tell him that electro hygrometers suck. get a manual one. but knots after three days is great. he seems to be fanning and misting the right amount. keep up the good work:thumbup:

Here are a couple pics he sent me.  One of the Shotgun FC and one of the cakes.  Looking good for 3 days?

The FC looks proper to me...Holes in all 6 sides, seem to be about the right size and spacing. Enough perlite and elevated off the surface and high up off the ground :smile:

Sounds like the techniques are all good as well :laugh: Tell him they're looking very nice :laugh: He seems to be doing it all fairly well. If anything those cakes look slightly lonely :P

Hehe yep looking a little depressed, but healthy!  Hopefully soon they will have some new friends to keep 'em company.

Pretty much just using that hygrometer to measure the room RH and temp now, sitting next to the FC and holding 75 degrees F pretty good and about 45 or so RH room ambient.

Thanks for the replies guys!

Day 4 and no pins yet per se, but the knots are getting longer and some of them seem to have this dark looking "pinhole" sized dot smack in the center of them.  Could they be getting ready to pin?

And to verify, if the knots get bigger each day, is that a sign that the FC has the proper amount of humidity?

Thanks!

And also, should my friend start backing off the misting a bit with the knots becoming so prominent?
