Dunking-- worth it?
    #2230999 - 01/09/04 02:11 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hi, my first flush is just about over and I was wondering if dunking my cakes was worth it. Will dunking significantly increase my yield? If so thatd be awesome

dunking is way worth it. sometimes someone sees cakes looking like theyve flushed already coming right out of incubation due to getting mouisture content used up. or like if you let them overincubate.

dunk before birthing by filling the jars with water and fridging them overnight, you also get the benefit of a coldshock at the same time.

dunk between flushes, it will definately increase the yield.

peace

Is dunking worth it?
Well you'd have to consider the fact that it's really easy & absolutely free, and it shouldn't take you more than 3 mins per jar + the 12-16-18-24 hour soaking period.

And you'd also have to consider this right here

Yes it is worth it!

Some times the flush after the dunk is larger than the first flush.

Dunk it!

take the lid of a colonized jar, pour in water. use something as a spacer between the lid and the cake to keep it submerged. put the jar in the fridge for 12-24 hrs.
