[b]OTHER TYPES OF CASING??[/b]
    #1418515 - 03/30/03 05:53 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

My buddy want to case some of his cakes with something other that just vermiculite. He has read about the 50/50 casings but he thinks that adding the oyster shell and lime, measuring it all out, is just to much of a hassle. Is there any other mixes that he could use, or maybe something he could get pre mixed from a store? All suggestions are welcome as to what he should do. Maybe if someone knows where he could find oyster shell and lime, he will try that 50/50 out. Thnks to all the Shroomers for being such a great help!!

I FOUND THIS AT MYCOTOPIA :


Basic millet or birdseed recipe for 1 pint jar:

- 100g (3.5 oz~140 ml~0.59cup) birdseed
- 80g (2.8 oz = 80 ml~0.34cup) water
- knife tip full of gypsum

What is gypsum??

Most of your local garden/hardware stores should carry lime. You are probably going to have to pick up a big bag (around 40 lbs) of it, but it is very cheap (around $5). A friend of mine does this casing without the oyster shells and it works just fine.
