Its usually better to use dung as your substrate and use a casing material like peat or verm or coir as a casing :wink:

There's really only one way of doing a dung casing, that is to spawn your pasturized dung with colonized grain or brf cakes that have been broken up. Um..If i were you, Id just check the Cult. FAQ for bulk substrates.

I did it, and it contaminated like a mofo. I'd follow angry's advice and spawn the poo, then case it with coir or 50/50+ mix. But there are some (rhizo, for example (not knocking you bro, just mentioning)) who swear dung can be used as a casing layer. If you want to know more, pm him.

I case with dung, and rarely get contaminants.

I've had success with the cow poo they sell at Home Depot. It's the only thing I use for casing. I tried a 50/50 once and ended up with a contam. Honestly, I think it's all a matter of preference. Good luck!
:grin:

I use just spawned cow shit with no casing If I do case it I use 50/50 + or straight coco coir. I have better luck without casing it.
