When dunking, does the temp of the water really matter? I submerged the cake in fucet water(is fucet h20 okay?) that was about room temp. Thanks

I think you might be screwed. You have to use clean water or it might contaminate. Just make sure the water isn't over 100 or it'll cook the mycelium and kill it, and make sure its not freezing so it won't freeze it. Next time get some sterilized water, mix it up with 1 part H2O2 and 10 parts water and then dunk it. It needs to sit there for at least 12-24 hours.

my FOAF used tapwater once as an experiment, and all went just fine, but still...not a suggested practice.

I used faucet water as well. It says right in the Tek that you can do that. If you're paranoid, clean the faucet down with bleach or something I guess.

I always suggest putting them in a coldshock ath the same time. Kill two birds with one stone.
