need advice from the experienced
    #2080409 - 11/07/03 11:08 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

My friend has one of his 12 jars with a little possible contamination. He was thinking of birthing that one early, cutting out the possible contam (most likely cob-web mold) and doing a casing in a separate grow chamber. This is his first grow and he is just going to cold shock, dunk and roll the other cakes. If he does case this on can someone give the safeest procedure and materials to use for casing this one. He said the shroomery has so many different substrates in their ideas he doesnt know which is best for him. Thanks.

use your best cakes for casing,if you use a suspect cake any contams will quickly colonize the casing material and screw the myc.

the casing below was infected in the bottom casing layer first and was nearly one third riddled with cobweb before it showed on the surface.



casings will yeild you better results than cakes so use your best cakes for this purpose.

Firstly, for sterilisation procedures and casing substrates visit these two links respectively.

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/3264

Secondly, are you sure it is cobweb? Take a look at this and see if you can identify your contamination.

To lessen the risk of your separate casing becoming contaminated, you could do a peroxide dunk after you cut the infected region of the cake out. Here are a few links to help you understand what peroxide is all about.
