Estimates on Colonization time for this 12 cake casing
    #1308218 - 02/14/03 02:27 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)


My uncle's mechanic's pet lemur has 12 cakes crumbled up in a non-transparent rubbermaid container. The casing is straight verm. The lemur in question doesn't want to open the lid if he doesn't have to to check for colonization progress. If you had to guess, how long do you think it would take to colonize sufficiently? The strain is Lipa Yai.

Tub is about 2 feet long by 1foot wide. Bottom layer is about an inch, actual crumbled cakes are about 2 inches, top layer about 3/4 of an inch.

I would have only used 1/2" at the most for a casing layer.

Spray the air with Lysol and check the progress of the colonization of the casing layer every day.

good luck!

3-5 days, depends on the temperature and other factors.

afoaf made his casing layer too thick, so he deep scratched some furrows across it, about 1 1/2" apart .

Some of these were 9 cakes each. They took around 7 days.
