a few questions before birth
    #2048956 - 10/28/03 12:25 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

1 - which side up should i place the cakes? i was thinking the side with the perlite (i used perlite to keep out contams) because the mycellium network is stronger so ill have more mushrooms coming off the top instead of the bottome and sides.

2 - which is better for keeping out contams, perlite or vermiculite?

3 - when dunking after the first flush should i cold shock again or just dunk in room temp water?

4 - would adding some BRF to a 100% vermiculite casing mix make much of a difference?

5 - after i twist off the ready mushrooms should i apply some moist verm to where to shrooms used to be?

i know i had some other questions on my mind but i cant remember them right now, oh well. hope all goes well (fingers crossed)

1 - Whichever side that will provide more surface area.

2 - Vermiculite.

3 - Cold shocking isn't necessary but putting them in the fridge is a safeguard against contams.

4 - Yes it will make your casing contaminate.

5 - Yes if a large chunk is missing.

Gluck!

thanks. two more questions though.

1 - why would adding brf to casing mix contaminate it?

2 - what exactly is double end casing? ive read through all the faqs and teks i could find and still dont have a clear idea.

1. brf is the nutrients that fungus, molds, bacteria, etc. use to grow. when the brf and verm. are sterilized in the jar they are protected from other things and shroom spores are injected and colonize the brf before anything else gets to it.

1. ya, don't do it. you're providing a contam magnet.

2. it's verm on top and bottom, sprayed to be a wet reservoir. even better is magash's new patented 'dunk and roll', which is basically a tramp's casing method: get em wet, roll em in dry verm, stand em in the terrarium, and spray them wet again.
