dunking and casings...
    #1199368 - 01/08/03 03:38 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

We've all seen how dunking greatly improves the size of a flush, but I was wondering, if I'm making a casing, should I dunk the cake before crumbling and casing, or should I somehow dunk it after casing?  Doesn't dunking also help initiate pinning?  Most people when they dunk, they also cold-shock, but since it's a casing, you don't want to initiate pinning right away, because you want it to rebuild the mycellium network, and colonize the casing.

My guess is to dunk it while in the jars (with warm water, instead of cold water), then crumble and case, but I'd like some of your input too :laugh:

Sounds like your friend will have a nice flush coming soon!
And I guess I'll be doing the same in a few more days :smile:

I agree.. cakes are the training wheels of the supercross ryder!!

PS: Your casing will rehydrate your crumbled cakes. might want to dunk in a bit of peroxide ( h2o2 ) to warn off contams before you case...
