attempted pinning... Does everything look good?
    #1614481 - 06/06/03 01:48 PM (15 years, 16 days ago)

My friend's cousin cased two half-pint cakes each inside half gallon milk jugs wrapped in foil at 81 deg.. Once 4 - 5 patches showed through, he attempted to initiate pinning by decreasing the temp one night down to 63 degrees, then the next day, he set temp. at 74 deg.; put in 10 gallon aquarium w/ moisture near a window; and fans and sprays on the sides twice daily. Once a day, he takes it out and gives it a good fanning and "dumps" the CO2 out of the aquarium.

After 5 days of fanning & misting the glass edges, the mycelium has "reached" through all over (not overlay yet) and has sprouted many (over 50) little fluffy runners about 1/4 to 1/3 inch long and about 1/16 inch thick which just stick out into the air. No pinning though. Is everything on track???

It sounds like everything is on track to me. 

As long as your friends cousin remembers to be liberal with his lysol, to keep contams away from everything.  I think he will be very happy soon.
