What's the deal with dunking before first flush?
    #1538735 - 05/11/03 10:59 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Does anyone do this. Would I benefit from it? Would it speed up the pinning process? Cause my friends cakes on average have taken a good three weeks to pin.

People have claimed that is helps the first flush, but if you have cakes you can't tell if they are completely colonized. If you wait the week they are usually fine, but I know of some bad experiences with it, and you can't be sure.

I reccomend waiting until after the first flush to dunk, IMO.

In my experience, if you want to use your cakes as soon as they fully colonize then don't bother dunking the cakes. If you leave them colonized for 2 weeks or more they seem to dry out a bit. In that case I would definetly dunk before their first flush.

A foaf dunkied his cakes on friday and when he went to check them out they have florished. They were sitting in his terrarium for a week and a half before he dunked. It seems that it sped up the process. Also, the cakes grew about 20% in size. Sounds like his cakes were very dry though.
