my first casing:-)
    #1144897 - 12/16/02 08:15 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

hello guys! i have many cakes 100% colonised so i will try to case some of them:-) i will make 2 casings. 1 with 1 cake and 1 with 2 cakes. i know that the casing will be not big but hey it's just my first time! i wanna see if i'll do it or not!
i will put a layer of verm (1cm) on the bottom,then the crumbled cake(s) and then another layer of verm. how many cm should be the verm on the top in the 2 cakes casing?
another question is, if i'll use peat moss will i have better results than using vermiculite?
(please dont tell me to find any other things cuz i cant! only verm and peat moss)

I'd go for a 50/50 mix instead of just verm.

In reply to:

I think around 2 cm should be good

I've found my results have been better when I use 50/50 peat/verm mix (with some agricultural lime and some oyster shell) but I have also found this is more prone to contamination.
