Tghtly packed casing
    #2180918 - 12/15/03 10:56 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

My dog skip did not correctly judge the size of a casing container for the jar that he had and having no place else to put it and not wishing to reseal the jar due to cantams he had to tightly pack in and did not have much room left for the top casing layer. There is about 1" of 60/40 verm/coco on bottom and about 1/4" on top. It was then covered with plastic wrap and foil.

What would be the best thing to do? Will it still fruit normally this way, but just take longer? Or should he wait for it to take hold then dump the whole thing into a larger casing box with more verm/coco?

Okay. to start off, you would of had enough room if you used a thinner bottom layer. I put just enough down to cover the bottom. Too much casing on the bottom is a harbor for contams. Next time try a thinner bottom layer. i wouldnt mess with the casing too much if it's already made. You should be alright if you can't see the substrate below the 60/40.
