What to do with cakes right after the Dunk Tek
    #1279973 - 02/05/03 01:32 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I havent seen this step anywhere in the Shroomery. After you let the cakes soak for 12 hours, do you dry them off with a paper towel before you put them back in the terrarium, or do you just put them in there wet? I just took 2 cakes out that have soaked for 12-14 hours and they still looked a little blue. I patted them down with a little paper towel like I usually do, but I didn't know if this step is necessary with the Dunk Tek. Any other experiences with the Dunk Tek would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yeh, you can use a towel to dry them off on the outside but it's not really necessary. I would just put them back in the fruiting chamber after dunking and let them recover.

blueing (is that a word) is caused by handling of the mushroom cake/stalk. (in most cases)

cakes are pretty darn resilient. i usually scruff mine up a little with a knife before dunking, removing any hardened outer mycelial covering so that the cakes will absorb moisture better...this also gives them a nice fresh surface to fruit from. you don't have to worry about drying them off or whatever, i mean, just make sure they're not sitting in standing water in your fruiting chamber.
