1Cake Wonder? How much can 1 Actually make_
    #1535547 - 05/09/03 08:27 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

afoaf had an idea. If he Had 1 cake, crumbled and made a casing,

Now once that casing is getting colonized, mix it all, Then Add more 50/50 mix wait till thats colonized mix more, repeat again with more 50/50..

SO this would give someone a huge deep casing and more mycelium to play with and start another casing with /corn/hay/poo. ALL with that One Cake to begin.

Would this work? Would it be too much as far as contams go?

Can 1 cake actually make like 4 casings if done right??

Something i read into recently that might help you with what you're thinking about. 
Corncob Mycelium Slurry
Sounds like just what the doctor ordered.  :grin:

Thats exactly what he did, he used that water got dunked with it and then went from there.
Hes really , really tired of waiting for cakes and hes wondering if making a big Caseing can make him like 2 casings to colonize.

and the question, would it fruit on both like another cake inside of a casing. 1 cakes would eventually = 2 regular casings <--- Right? ru following me_

I don't quite understand what you are trying to ask.

If you mean using a casing to spawn a bulk substrate (like straw) I wouldn't do it -- casing is not clean and it will probably contaminate the bulk substrate. You can most certainly take a cake or two or three (from the same strain,) however, and use this to spawn bulk substrate and end up with much more mycelium. You could even innoculate more bulk using chunks of this colonized bulk but only if it is very clean and it'll be harder to break up and mix. The more mycelium you put into the bulk the faster it will colonize, making it less likely to contaminate. Just break it up real well -- I turn it into a mush -- and mix real well so there is mycelium on every blade of straw.

If you are asking how much colonized substrate (I am assuming brf) to add to a casing that is really up to you -- I add only a cm or 2 cm layer which makes it fruit almost entirely in the first 2 flushes, with maybe a small third flush, but it is harder to make an even casing. If you use more you'll get more flushes and it is easier to case. The more substrate the more casing is needed, but I never really go below 1/2 ." I would think one cake could equal a 6" square surface area.

A casing has no nutrients. If you contiuned to case a cake, your mycellium would eventually run out of nutrients and stop growing. Your best bet would be to spawn straw and/or dung and then case that to produce mushrooms.

my unc had extra wbs and pc'd it, now he did a g2g with like 3colonized grain from a finished one, and now the new jar is done, it took longer but it worked, i think as long as they have nutrients, i think. So why not do a g2g? The problem tho lies in the risk for contams with many transfers
