1st casing questions
    #1594494 - 05/30/03 09:00 PM (15 years, 24 days ago)

Ok, I'm getting ready to do my first casing tomorrow and I need some help. I've read the faq's, but I think in layman's terms and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if I have this straight. I plan on using the Wally World equivalent of Jiffy Mix, it has peat moss, "organic materials", horticultural perlite, and lime (not sure if it is hydrated or not). Now, this is how I was planning on doing this:
1)Put Jiffy mix in pan and cover with aluminum foil, bake at 350 degrees for 1 hr. Let cool.
2) Mix jars of substrate and put foil over them, PC at 15 psi for 1 hour and let cool.
3) Crumble cakes in a plastic bag and keep it airtight until time to spread over Jiffy mix.
4) Dampen Jiffy Mix with 1:10 h202/h20.
5) Spread cake crumbles over Jiffy Mix and fill in with substrate from jars that were PC'd. (2 or 3 cakes per casing)
6) Cover with 1/2 in of more baked Jiffy Mix, and recover with foil.
7) Put in a warm, humid place and check it once a day until you see mycelium growing in the valleys. Cover this with more Jiffy mix for an even pinset. When patches about the size of a silver dollar appear around the cake, cold shock and then birth into terrarium after 24 hours.
I'm sorry if this seems repetitive, but I am not totally sure I understand what I am reading and was wondering if someone could give me some poiinters before I commit 15 cakes to casings. Thanks.

Quick follow up: Do I need to screen the Jiffy Mix and remove all the sticks and pieces of bark in there or does it not matter since I'm sterilizing the whole mess?

Yes, if it has any undecayed plant material take it out or it will contaminate.
