Dunking Casings
    #1563223 - 05/20/03 04:34 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

When would be the optimal time to dunk a casing,when its slowing down,or when it has almost stopped?
Also,having never dunked a casing,is it basically the same as doing a cake?(a really big cake) And would it be beneficial to put it back in the pan upside down,or back the way it came out? I imagine that you wouldn't want to leave it immersed in water too long,or it might start to come apart on you.
Any suggestions appreciated.

isnt the casing layer supposed to provide enough moisture? so you don't have to dunk?

Yeah,but I seem to recall reading here that it can be done when a casing starts to peter out so to speak.
My praire dogs have produced 3 flushes so far,and it seems like theyre slowing down some.Thought it might be worth a try.
How long do you thing I should dunk them Fugu?

it doesn't really matter how you throw it in the pan or whatever. Soak it in water for about twelve hours and then flip it over in the terrarium.

actually, put it back in the pan casing side down so when you flip it back over in the terrarium the casing side will be up.

Thanks for the advice all. Have several casings in bread pans. Think I will try heavy misting and dunking a couple as well.
