question about giant casing in a tubberware
    #1436365 - 04/07/03 03:55 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Pretty soon my friend is about to try and make a giant casing in one big tubberware container. He has done casings before with success and thinks it would be interesting to go this route next. He also understands that you add 1/4" casing for every 1" of substrate. The only thing he would like to know is if there is a limit on how far you can take this. So how deep can you make the substrate? He figures once you get to a certain depth that it may no longer be beneficial and might be a waste of substrate or may even be harmful if too deep. Let me know cause he wont stop buggin me about it!

Damn friends without internet access!!  :grin:

About the size... as long as you don't drown it..... as big as you want to should be do-able.

you mean you wouldnt bother making the top casing layer more than 1 inch. So if i made the top casing layer 1 inch then the substrate underneath it would be 4 inches.

Any second opinions?

also how deep should he make the bottom verm layer under the 4" substrate.

If using cakes or whole grain as substrate, a depth of a few inches is best for maximum yields. If using bulk substates such as straw or compost the maximum depth should be about 6 inches (1 1/2" casing).

I doubt you'd need 12 qrts for one tub, maybe 3-4 tops. Save some jars and make a few tubes, better play the odds.
