Cakes with wells
    #2270950 - 01/25/04 08:52 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

some of my cakes i have colonizing have the verm wells in the center.When do i inject water into them,during fruiting right?and should i use dog food water,or does that make contamination more likely?

use sterilised water and add it at birth and add some more as the shrooms mature,then add again before the next flush and so on.
more water=more fruit.

If injection is done what I have done to prolong the nuts in my cakes is take a karo mix and pc then take a sterile syringe sqiet in the jar then extract the karo/water mix then injet it in the cake this has worked wonders but I have had contams so know the only time I will do this is when after the second flush when nuits are depleting hope this helps

I've found the verm in the center gets colonized and that injection doesn't work well... the water doesn't want to go in, but dunking them WILL saturate the verm well. I believe the straw method may be a better method than injection to keep the cakes moist, but I've never done it because casing just seems easier. Either way make sure that the cakes are sitting on something where the excess water can drain out.

How many CCs of sterile water would you suggest to inject inside
a PF style cake of 1/2 pint?
4/5 are too much?  :confused:

I would do 2 and wait a couple of hours to absorb then do two more and in a couple of days repeat. 1 at one spot 1 at a differnt spot

If you see that some moister is coming out stop and try later you dont want to much water or try a dirrent spot. What a good sollution that is easy as hell is make an inch thick layer of verm and place the cake on that and just keep adding water to the verm if the cake wants it it will suck it up and it wont screw with anything.
