a casing disaster??
    #2260899 - 01/21/04 09:26 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Okay I cased about 3 days ago. my bottom layer was vermiculite. The middle layer was 1 pint cake which was crumbled the size of marbles. My top layer was moist vermiculate str8 vermiculite that I nuked for 10 min. When I opened up today I saw white fuzzy shit growing... except I knew it was cobweb mold although it didn't smell. But I refused to waste a cake. So I took out all the chunks of mycelium. It had grown by the way. And I threw away all the vermiculite. Then I proceeded to put the chunks in my sterlized sink and filled it up with warm water. This washed off all the bad vermiculite and all I had was my chunks. THen I put these chunks into another sterilized casing tray and added a layer of sterlized verm. on top. Ummmm... is anyone else out there wondering why I was so stupid? I don't think this will work at all but it was worth a try right? What do you guys think? Plz don't be mean and call me names ok? I'm just trying to trip ok? :confused:

could work never know....tho I must admit I have my doubts that it will..how do you know for sure it was cobweb? I've been fooled rescently by wispy mycelium and I've had a descent amount of experience with both mycelium and cobweb

I figured it was cobweb because there was no connection to the lower level of mycelium. it was just growing on the upper layer of the casing. but I didn't want to run the risk of it attacking my cake. I don't think it could have been wispy mycelium... damnit I hope it wasn't but I am crossing my fingers and hoping this works.

sometimes you get a stray chunk of mycelium in the casing layer that can do something similar to that......well at this point it dosen't matter anyways just gotta hope the new casing works out :smile: and if it dosen't try again
