casing humidification
    #1796012 - 08/09/03 07:00 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

This has probably been addressed before but I can't find it anyplace. Although I have past experience with cakes I've never tried casing, so I'm unclear about what should be done for humidification. I get the impression that perlite would be overkill and possibly cause contamination problems... however, if a casing was kept in a rubbermaid of the sort you might use to fruit cakes and occasionally misted with a handheld spray bottle, would that be adequate?

Also, is there an obvious warning sign when the casing is too wet?

yes that should work fine. casings tend to produce enough humidity for themseleves as long as thy arent real tiny in a huge container. You may just want to fan a little more often after pins form to keep the RH down. and whenever needed mist the casing.

good luck
