self watering casing idea
    #1168793 - 12/25/02 04:28 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

i don't do any of that fancy stuff with ultra sonic nuclear humidifiers N stuff,
all i do is put seran wrap over the casing which is in a 3 gallon rubbermaid container. the flushes are great to.

i was thinking, would it work to put like 4 inches of verm on the bottom and put about 1 1/2 inches worth of water down there, so that the water would be absorbed upward to the casing? that way i don't have to try and rehydrate the cake after the flushes, its always a bia. and if it worked correctly, it wouldn't drown the casing becaue it would absorb just what is needed?

any thoughts appreciated

Now I'm told that with that much still water you run the risk of some pretty nasty contams, but if you look at my sloppy ass set up in my pics you know I'm not exactly doing what I'm preaching here. Just keep your eyes open if you decide to go with this set up. Myself I'm a dunker, results seem to work better for me but man your right about it being a pain in the ass. :grin:

Maybe u can have the verm like you said, and when u want, add sterile water to the verm layer. It will then soak up this sterile water, minimizing the possibility for contams present in still/standing water. Kinda like the internal reservoirs idea used in PF cakes, only on the outside of the casing.....
