Casing is damn easy. Try it with half your batch. I've cased both my 2nd and 3rd times growing. The 1st time i used peat moss; the 2nd, just plain ol vermiculite.

for your first time, go with fruiting off cakes. i don't think casings are very hard though, and well worth the extra effort. definitely move up to casings, but only after you've grown and tripped with pf cakes.

I agree. Fruit off of a cake once. Definately worth the experience... my recommendation is to move on to grains asap. much easier, better all around imo. so far, I have only gotten one jar contaminated using grains.... and that was duirng a GTG transfer....

I started with casing, and have had good success, though my last was a failiure. It is very easy, and I only do cakes once in awhile to keep my prints up as they tend to fruit a little faster.

you could try and case it after your 1st or 2nd flush off the cake. you should probably dunk it first though...

A little off topic but still related to your question. Some may say different, but I found slicing the cakes about 1/4" (maybe less) rather than crumbling to be a lot better. Reasons: Slicing-easier to get an even layer and pinset, also when harvesting fruits off crumbled casing, they tend to rip off a lot more substrate a leave bigger holes and hollows in the casing. Let the cake colonize fully then wait one more week, this way contams won't be too much of a problem when slicing.
