Yet another casing question :) Comprehensive!
    #1496190 - 04/26/03 05:46 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

How does this sound as a casing procedure?  The bottom layer is moist vermiculite, about an inch deep.  This verm has been cooked in an oven in a metal cake pan with an aluminim foil "lid" for 5 hours at 250 degrees.  Then the mycelia material.  Next, a layer (half inch) of casing material (half verm half sphagnum moss) that was cooked in the same way and is now "moist but not wet".  After that has been done, a misting of h2o2/h2o water on the top to prevent any nasties from coming in that way, then covering the containers with alum foil and incubating at 85 degrees.  I'd check them and spray them (if needed) once or twice a day, but the foil would give good co2 buildup and prevent any airborne evils from settling in.  How does this sound guys, anything you'd change? remove? modify?

I greatly apprecitae all of your help :smile:

My friend would omit the bottom verm layer.
