question about casing - cannot find the answer on my own
    #2139543 - 11/27/03 04:14 AM (13 years, 13 days ago)

hello. i remember seeing pictures of substrate in large jar not fully colonized. the jars were not like the ones told to use with cakes, they had a narrow openign so if the substrate is fully colonized it should not come out easyly.

so here is the question, can i make a shroom case like that :

i take a large jar, fill it with substrate, sterilize it, inject the spores, wait until 75% of substrate is colonized, shake it to break the myco thing, prepare the case with peat, pour the 75% colonized shaken substrate into case, follow further casing teachings.

why 75 % - i am in the middle of my first cake cultivation and it looks like if it is fully colonized i cannot break it by shaking and if i cannot break it inside the jar then i cannot get it out of the jar that has narrow opening.

why i want to use large jar is that i cannot get jars with opening as wide as jar where i live, i can use whiskey glasses etc. but they are small, so i think best option for me is to use one larger jar.

i hope u understood what i wanted to ask, thank u.

let them 100% colonise the jar.
when they are ready,break them up with a clean knife so you can get them out.they need to be broken up before you case anyway,so using a jar with a narrow mouth isn't an issue.
hope that helps.
