Casing Question
    #2180512 - 12/15/03 08:36 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

My friend just cased (first time) two of his cakes. He wrapped them in saran wrap. Should he poke holes in it while they colonize? Or should he just open it up once a day and fan it? Thanks.

Well i'd poke holes in it, read up on the bulk neglect report and see how he goes about the colonization of things. It's a good start at least.

Depends on how humid your incubator is. If its pretty humid dont even wrap it up.

If its not, yes, then poke plenty of holes in there. Coco-coir has a tendency of smelling yeasty.

If they're tall and there is enough air you can just cover them -- the CO2 will speed up the colonization.

If they are short you'll need to poke holes unless you fan like 1 or two times a day. You want it to get a bit hot and smelly, but not too much. It should smell like ammonia a pretty good deal.
