Cold shock after the mycelium colonizes the casing. Overnight is fine -- doesn't really matter; the point is just to get all the substrate to a lower temperature in a short period of time.

they dont need it, but when you dunk and coldshock your cakes you get way bigger flushes than without, i have read it and proven it in my own experiments, never tried cold shocking casings though, they do fine without

Casings usually pin quicker if you cold shock them, but yeah -- you don't need it. Also, it helps to get all the fruiting conditions down at once because this results in bigger yields, IME.

A fridge is fine.
