I think I may have a problem (casing)...
    #1514294 - 05/02/03 10:40 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I made a batch of 12 PK tek 1/2 pint jars about 5 weeks ago. Last week 3 of my jars were 100% colonized so I cased them. Bottom layer verm, cumpled cakes, then 45/45/10 verm, peat, and lime. I covered in plastic wrap with a few holes. That was on Saturday morning. Today is Friday and there is no sign of any white goodness on the casing layer. I should have seen something by today right? Is there anything I should do besides keep waiting? Like a cold shock or something?

At what temperature did you store the casing ?

Did you test the casing pH? Or, just go with a guess. 6T

I just guessed unfortunately. You think the lime screwed it all up? It's being stored at around 74 degrees right now, but I can change it if need be...

My foaf suggests anyone who adds a "casing" layer, get a test meter (under $20 at most garden supply marts) & test, then adjust it to a pH around 7.5

No telling what yours is, now.

Also, sounds like your temp is a bit low. Suggest you raise it to 80 - 84 F.

6T :wink:
