    #1373089 - 03/13/03 03:16 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ok.. i figured since my substrate has spawned in the high 60s - mid 70s that i should cold shock to iniate pinning.. but i really dont think i should do it in the fridge.. it's pretty dirty looking

what about outside??? theres still snow on the ground... how cold is too cold?? what do u guys think.

I would just clean the fridge. That, or wrap the casings in alot of plastic bags...maybe 1-2 shopping bags, and then in a garbage bag after that....depends how nasty the fridge is.
Outside I think it cant be more than below zero celsius....cant be below freezing in other words if u dont know what zero celcius is in farenhite....(just look at me, i cant even remember how to spell the shit!)...ANYWAYZZZZ...GOOD LUCK!
Wait for more replys for possible alternatives...

You wouldn't want to put it outside here, the wind is blowing like crazy, 90knots and shit.. worst ever.

lol.. i only use my fridge for beer... its not really nasty lookin.. its a newer fridge.. it just hasnt been cleaned for a loooooooooong time, and theres some mystery food in it.

i dont live there.. no one lives there.. its an unfinished house that my family owns.. i just party there.

but i guess i'll clean the fridge... how long should i leave it in the fridge? is there any harm that can come from cold shocking?? other than possible contamination from mystery cheese...

I'm starting to get annoyed at people who respond to a post without answering the question.

can I cold-shock in out door weather?
Yes. Be sure to wrap in bags, or do what ever measures you see fit to ensure sterility. Of course, if you have alot of substrate, you could did a hole in the ground and put that in it, recovering with snow. With the thaw, and warm weather there should a bountiful harvest.
As far as freezing temperatures killing mycelium, I don't see how this could be true. Almost every state has freezing temperatures at some point during the year... but without fail they always seem to produce the same shrooms at the same spots the next year.
