Couple newb questions about casing(Sorry)
    #1473144 - 04/19/03 02:15 PM (14 years, 13 days ago)

Hey guys, I havn't really started on growing shrooms yet, I'm really set on getting all the instructions straight first. I'm thinking about using the 50/50+ tek. Anyway, I'm a little confused on a thing or two. When I make the cakes in the jars, would it be ok to use the verm/brf cakes, like the ones made with the PF-Tek?

My next question refers to a part in the 50/50+ tek, it says "Then take fresh cakes from the jars, cut them like a cucumber into slices about 2-3" thick, or for best results leave them whole. Put these slices over the layer of vermiculite. Take some colonized substrate.. and gently crumble to fill in the places in between the the slices of substrate.. so your entire layer of substrate is pretty much filled without gaps in between the slices or the sides. " So the fresh cakes would be the colonized substrate right, so after I cut a couple of them into slices I would crumble say one or two of the slices up and spread that through out the cracks between the sliced cakes, correct?

Thanks for helping a newb out!

okay.
Yes it's okay to use brf/verm for cakes :smile:
And you can just crumble some colonized cakes up and then add the casing layer on top of it, or you could do the cut method your refering to and just fill in the gaps with crumbled pf cakes.
Does this answer your questions?

Yup that answers my question, but which method would you prefer, cut method, or the crumble method?
