Dunk tek!?!?!
    #1714162 - 07/14/03 02:42 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Can someone please direct me to the dunk tek if there is one? I've searched it on the board and on the main site. I've not come up with a single procedure for proper dunking/cold shocking. Thanks in advance.

Thank you. I'm forever in your debt.

PS: I love your avatar. (the little icon below your name. I dunno if they call them avatars here or not...) Did you draw that?

Hey VIgnisFatuusI, if you are dunking PF cakes which I assume you are, the standard thing to do which is much easier than the dunktek linked is just put bottled water straight into your 1/2 pint jar, close it up, tape up the holes, stick it in the fridge for 24 hours. Cold shock and dunk at the same time, my friend has 100% success in doing this as I'm sure like 1000 others on this board.

A few questions:

After the cakes have been rehydrated for the chosen duration, it says to 'pat dry with a paper towel'. Won't this not allow for pinning in the places the cake's been handled? I read in an earlier tek that when handling a cake you should make sure to always pick it up in the same place as that place and anywhere else you touch will never pin and thus never fruit. Is this true?

Also, the picture in the dunk tek of the jar with the wire screen inside of it...what is that?

So after removing my cakes after colonization and removing the verm layer, I'd then put the cake BACK in? Along with cold, sterile water? After that, how do I dry off the cakes before birthing them without damaging the myceliam?

nonono don't remove the verm layer. Just open the jar, pour water in. Just use bottled water (although tap water works fine too for most people).

Don't bother "patting" them dry, the water evaporates within minutes enough not to cause damage to your cakes. Don't worry about the dunktek, almost everyone does it by just putting water in the jar.

The reason why you want the verm layer is that it creates a cheapo casing (read up on casing in the FAQ). Also, some people roll their cakes in verm to get an even coating all around. Think about it this way, your cakes like to be moist (not wet), and verm is good at holding moisture. I would suggest for your first grow to just not bother with rolling your cakes, you can try that later.

Is is ok to dunk a cake, and then use it to case, or is there a dunk method for casing?

I don't think you can dunk casing? Maybe I'm just too noob though...
