Condensation in bottom of casing.
    #1361702 - 03/10/03 03:37 AM (14 years, 23 days ago)

My friend has made two casings, each with no bottom layer, 3 Creeper BRF cakes crumbled, and a thin layer of 50/50 on top. He made them on 3/7 and placed them back into the incubator at 82-84 degrees. Today, he noticed condensation in the bottom of the casing container and is worried that it might hurt the mycellium to have water touching it. Is this going to be a problem? Should he have used a bottom casing layer? Thanks.

The containers used aren't completely transparent, but allow a small amount of light through, that's what made the condensation visible. Is this buildup of water common? Do you guys usually poke holes in the bottom of your casing trays to prevent it? I've read mixed opinions on whether or not to use a bottom layer in the casing. Some seem to think it can lead to a higher risk of contams. It seems that a bottom layer might help soak up some of this condensation. Maybe I'll tell my friend to try it on his next casing.
