Very small casing with one 1/2 pint BRF cake. Useless?
    #1651501 - 06/21/03 06:21 PM (15 years, 1 day ago)


Hey,

Someone recently made his first casing using 2 cakes and coco coir tek and lost it to cobweb. He's so afraid of losing another 2 cakes that he bought some small foil containers that are about 9 inches X 6 inches.

Since he's still in the learning process of casing, he was wondering if it's ok to case in such a small container using only one fully colonized BRF cake. He knows it's probably too small to get big yields but thinks that it will still be better than straight cake fruiting.

Does very small casings work?

thanks.

.fs.

It would work and would be so adorable I'm sure. I've never seen one that small.

If you haven't already birthed the cake, you could still do a grain to grain transfer.

In a clean working area, make up some new BRF jars. Sterilize a spoon. Scoop out some clean mycelium into the new BRF jars. No need to wait for spores and colonization is faster.

Good luck with the baby cake if you decide to go that route.

Yes, smaller casings work but they tend to produce smaller fruits. Here's a 1/4 pint of birdseed that my friend fruited just to see what would happen.

Good, I have something like 4 or 5 cakes ready to fruits. I didn't know I could simply scrape some mycellium and innoculate grains.  I'll do that tomorow since I now have some popcorn soaking for the next 23 hours :smile:.

Thanks for the tips..

I have a question for you Ainasko.

When you scrape some mycellium and drop it in the popcorn jar, do you need a lot, like one full teaspoon or just a little bit?

i have done some small casing that work very well i use them little tin foil pans about same size 1" verm wet on the bottom crumble half of a 1/2 pint cake case with 1/4" of 50/50+ and get about 80 wet grams from each thats about 160 wet grams from a single flush on 1/2 pint twice as much as if you fruited the whole cake and get 3 flushes

A little bit will work. A little more will work faster.

I can't stress enough that your work area must be absolutely clean if you are attempting a grain to grain transer.

Do it in a small room. Spray it well with Lysol first. If there are fans or AC vents, turn them off while working. Work quickly.

Good luck to you!

I guess it depends on the volume of the jar..... One full teaspoon of fresh mycellium is enough for an half pint jar to fully colonize aproximately in 10 days. But if you want faster colonisation or if you are going to use bigger jars, it's better to increase the amount of fresh mycellium used to innoculate the grain jar!.... I know your question was for Ainasko, but i have been away for a while (because FUGU has moved to my house and formatted my comp. a couple of times to install a network between our comp.s...;) And at last my technical service solved the problem:)) and i'm really exited to be back.....::))

Work quickly




This is the most important step when doing an open air transfer. You should also wear some type of dust mask, or something to keep you from breathing on your sterile jars. Not only does your work room need to be clean, but you should be also.

Small casings work fine.





That is one half pint of popcorn spawned to even less dung. It has so far produced 3 flushes, this picture being the 3rd. Strain is PESH.
