casings in the cold?
    #2173349 - 12/12/03 06:43 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

well, school's out and I want to head home for the holidays. the only problem is that my two straw casings are finally starting to pin. I'd wait around for them to fruit but the whole process takes quite a while. so how bad would it be for them if they spent a couple of hours in my car's trunk? It might be even longer because I'll need to wait till my parents are out of the house/in bed to get them inside. Would it be better if I left them here and came back for them when they're ready to be picked? The only thing about that is if I wait too long they might be overgrown and starting to rot (happened to me over thanksgiving). So what I'm asking is "cold shocking" when it's already pinning bad for the casing or will it be all right? Any thoughts?

I have heard that if you put a casing (or cake) in the fridge (not the freezer) that it would stall colonization until temp norms are restored.  I don't know if the pins would survive, but who cares, they'll use the nuritional resources in the next flush :smile: Might wanna double check, but I'm pretty sure this is the case...
