What's the best casing mix for Cubensis B+
    #1733115 - 07/20/03 09:11 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'm going to try casing for the first time and I was wondering what mixture has the most nutrients in it to case a couple of brown rice flour and vermiculite cakes.I am using Spore Magic's B+ strain.( if anyone has grown this strain please let me know how good it is.)

I agree...I never had any contam issues with straight verm. When I first used coir I had alot of cobweb...If you're thinking of using coir or peat moss with your verm...my advise is to avoid the temptation of over saturating the casing mixture and definately sterilize well and check/adjust the PH before casing... these are the things I seem to have learned through reading/trial and error.

I also tend o skip the bottom casing layer..I think its easier to get rid of cobweb on the surface if it's not developing deep into the bottom of the pan.

when you say "straight verm." i assume you are still pasteurizing it? ...err autoclaving, sterilizing, whatever you want to call it. We make tempeh where i work so we're always "pasteurizing"

when you steralize verm for a casing, what is the microwaving procedure? i wasnt to steralize the verm in the casing container, then use some of the steralized verm as the bottom layer and some as the top.

place the moist verm in a tupperware container (must be microwavable) and nuke it for 5 minutes. using a sterilized spoon stir it up (shaking works too). then nuke it for another 5 minutes. let cool in the microwave.
