Well to cold shock you gotta get it cold. It doesn't matter how but you gotta get it cold, and not too cold.

EDIT: Ohh I see now, the reason for the fridge is to cold shock it at the same time and get two birds with one stone I think. Just don't refridgerate and make sure to use clean water.

"but i do not have access to a refrigerator is there anyway of getting out of that step or doing it a differnt way"

No access to a fridge?! Where do you keep your food. If you want to still dunk, but with out putting them in the fridge, you will need to find a cold place(like a fridge)to keep your jars. If you want to get out of that step, just don't do it, you don't have to, it's not manditory.

go steal a cardboard box get a grocery bag at safeway and layer the inside (so water doesnt leak out), fill it with ice you can get at 7'11 for $1 (if you dont have a dollar ask people for $.25 to call ur mom 4 times) then fill that bitch up with ice and stick that mo fo in there and by the time the ice melts it should be a good enough cold shock, dunk ;D

a friend of a friend had the same problem...what she did was put the jars on top of frozen bottles of water inside a cooler...the bottles were wrapped in paper towels tied on with rubber bands...temperature inside the cooler was 53F...the jars were dunked for 12 hours and then birthed...hyphal knots appeared 3 days after birth...

well you would have them in a jar or bucket with water in it and put it into the icebox and the water that is in the jar/bucket will go to the same temp at the ice water out side of it so it don't matters where you set it.But I would find out what temp mycelium gets hurt at or dies from(cold) and try to keep the temp above it.So I don't know if you would need tons of ice to coldshock the cakes.I do have all that info smoewhere about the temps for you but i'm too stoned to go find it hahahah

Its a fine tek but if you dont have a fridge how do you get frozen water bottles?

If you can't bum the money for the ice, just get a plastic bag at the counter of any gas station and go to the coke machine... free ice, but they may chase you out after the 2nd or 3rd trip

im against cold shocking now. ive tried the fridge thing and i hate it. it takes too long for the shrooms too come. try this dunk and incubate at 81 for 16-20 hours. bring out to normal fruiting temp with high humidity 95 to 100% once you see the pins increase air exchange take the humidity down to 85% to 90%. mushrooms don't need that extreme cold to fruit. actually it usually shocks too much and you end up waitin for 2.5 weeks just to seed pins. thats my two cents thanks for reading:)

i think i'll try dunking but not cold shocking as well! my b+ cake came out looking battered and bruised, i felt so bad cause he was so fuzzy before i dunk shocked him =( and i birthed him into the chamber on the 13th and still no pins. and your saying it still might be another 10 or so days till i see anything , ahhhhh, fuck that, i think i could go without the cold shockin!

My guess is that he dose have a fridge as dose everybody but if he puts the cakes in the fridge his mom,dad or gf(what have you) will find them and he would get busted and he don't want that.Yeah like buddy said I think it's about 40f but I never got to find out for you for sure.But like they are all saying you should only cold shock if it is having a hard time to pin or not pinning at all.

just don't think its worth it unless your willing to wait. which im not. i think when you dunk and incubate at the same time the mylcilum keeps growing instead of halting when you put it in the fridge. then when you take it out of incubation you give it the correct natural shock to 75 . and if your humidity is right and youve double end cased bam shroom within 1.5 weeks instead of 2.5. i think incubation tempature being always stable means alot when you initiate pinning.:) happy growing everyone.
