Dunking = Harmless enough for a beginner?
    #1705095 - 07/11/03 05:58 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

So just pour water in the jar(or take the cake out,pour water in jar,replace the cake) then stick it in the fridge? Does this in any way increase the chances of contams or  any other problems? It seems alot of people swear by it, but it just freaks me out opening these sterile jars and pouring water into this delicate enviroment, am I just being paranoid?

Sorry for the simple question, just wanna make sure I understand this right. :confused:

Thanks
Peregrin

Yes it increases the risk for contams. But at the same time increases mushrooms size and flush. Its just a risk you have to take. I use bottled water. Sometimes I use h202; didnt hurt the cake. Anywho Im pretty sure the mycelium can take care of its own. Good Luck!

I dunked my first cake ever by just takin cold distilled purified water and pour'd it in a large butter container that was clean. 22 hours in the fridge, and after being in the fruiting chamber for 26 hours now there has been some white hair's and extra white growth kickin up. I thought my perlite / water / h2o2 solution wasn't working but the beast is actually gettin a bit of condensation started. I recomend getting your fruiting chamber setup one day before your cake will most likely be put in.

I have never had a problem with dunking...and I've always done it....just add a splash of a h202 in there and you'll be fine
