A few questions about casing...
    #1579538 - 05/26/03 10:25 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I just bought 4 aluminum bread pans to case in. They are 12 x 5.5 x 3.25 in. Are these a good size container to case 2 half pint cakes in? Since they are only 3.25 in deep, how deep should i make the substrate layer and the casing layer? And should i put moist vermiculite on the bottom? I was thinking maybe 1 in of substrate, then 1/4 in of casing...

you want a roughly 1:4 layer of casing to substrate respectively. Those containers sound a little big for only one cake in each, you want a substrate layer of probably an inch or more, you could do it with only two cakes but you won't get the big juicy flushes your after =). Start more jars, or make one casing.

I'm plannin on casing 2 cakes in each, not one. I only have 12 cakes, maybe less if something goes wrong with some of them. I'm sort of new at this so i dont want to put all my eggs in one basket and case them all together, u know? Would it be better if i got smaller containers so the substrate would be deeper?

yes, i would recommend smaller containers if your not comfartable doing all in one. but, you would be happier if you cut to the chase and filled each pan as high as possible, minus a half inch or so for casing.

Do this... fruit your cakes as cakes, then case them after the first flush. This will rejuvenate them, and you might not get as bigt a flush second time around as you did first time, but you'll get shrooms with no risk so you can start a new generatoion of mushrooms, trip a little bit, and get some experience casing. That's what i'm planning on doing, i'm still a newb too, so far i have done like.... 34 jars or something and no contams yet, my house must be wicked clean. That good mountain air... ahhh
