pinhead initiation-suggestions needed
    #1461356 - 04/15/03 08:04 PM (15 years, 11 days ago)

TMC suggests exposing cased grain to light after mycelium has reached the surface of the casing. which i have tried. in doing this, i get one or two fruitbodies which mature much faster than the others, and when i pick the mature ones, the other ones don't seem to mature. how can i get such a nice flush like the ones i see in the book?

you may also be initiating pinning too early. try waiting until the casing layer is more heavily colonized. also, cold shocking may help you. and try to ensure that you're applying a nice even casing layer.

do some searches on patching. the trick is to get an even pinset so they all mature at once. yes, experience goes a long way on this.

I had that happen to me. My theory is that for whatever reason a big knot formed in the jar, and this knot had a big head start on the rest. I say you just pull the whole thing right out and wait another week. Recase if there are only a couple super-aggressive parts. Are you keeping it covered with foil or something? Low gas exchange will help the mycelium form too.
