Casing ??
    #1469001 - 04/18/03 01:44 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have a aluminum disposable pan that is only 2 inches deep by 8 inches wide and long is this too shallow for casing will it affect my yield? If so how deep a pan should i use? Does a deeper casing yield more than a wider one with more surface area?

Your cakes will pin in a few days. Casing now may cause problems, such as mushrooms within the casing that die and rot because you can't see them.

After they flush, you can grind up the mycelium and case. A good rule of thumb is to use at least 2 inches of substrate (mycelium), preferably 3-4 inches.

Patience! :smile:

thxs i have additional cakes another 4 of B+ and then i have 8 of ecuadorian and 4 myco bags of ecuadorian so i figured id risk a chance of casing just for practice with two of my slower colonizing cakes that way i can stagger entrance into my terrarium. All my cakes were done in three seperate batches two weeks or more apart.

And to you, as well. Its all about the karma, baby :smile:

I'd definately case. Once you do, you'll throw out that perlite for good. Here's some casing tips:

- Don't let spores drop; this will give surface contams the snack they need to dive into your mycelium.

- Use a container that is light proof, such as a coffee can; you don't want mushrooms growing along the bottom or sides of your casing. Even opaque containers will conduct light, so your best bet is something made of metal or ceramic. If you can't find something like that, you can cover the whole thing with foil :smile:

- Incubate for an even pinset. You don't want to have to harvest when new pins are forming. Its hard to harvest and you run the risk of missing some aborts or picking new pins; soooo much easier when you can clear-cut the whole crop :smile:

- Spray before you harvest. They come up easier with the ol' pull-and-twist :smile:

Peace
