should I cold shock
    #2272701 - 01/25/04 10:03 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have a casing and I have never cold shocked. Does cold shocking make the casing pin faster? And if so how long should I cold shock? Its sounds benaficial in cakes but does it really help out that much that its worth doing? Thanks for the info.

Cold shock definately induces pinning.  Just leave them in the fridge overnite (or longer if you want to hold off fruiting for a while. it's a great way to keep mycelium active yet dormant) :smile:  Whatever you do don't freeze them.  It's bad to have them under 40 degree F weather.
Good luck!

i used to cold shock casings all the time then i would forget sometimes or just didn't have the time and the casings seemed to pin faster then when i did cold shock so i don't even bother anymore. all you gotta do is put it in the fridge overnight so just try and see if it helps it won't hurt anything, if you got bulk in a big rubbermaid it would be difficult to fit in the freezer though anyway cubes don't need cold shock

Yes, Cold shocking helps alot. It signals the fruit that "hey its getting winter, hurry up and fruit" Its one of the signals that cause fruiting along with co2 reduction and o2 increase...etc.:)bluhoney

Make sure it's sealed in something before it goes into the fridge, I guess. Aside from introducing whatever's hanging out in there, it couldn't hurt any to try it. Right? I say do it and see if pinning happens more quickly.

cold shocking benifits some of the other cold weather psilocybes,for some reason people decided it must be good for cubes aswell.
the misinformation has just been allowed to spread unchecked.

Maybe let the myc. reset (colonize patches, etc.), and then cold shock.

cold shock (as far as i understand) is to be performed on colonised casings that are ready to fruit or have and are on latter flushes

the "cold shock" (fridge time) is meant to help the mycellium start an even pinset by encouraging it to pin as a response to the cold. cold can also be used to further entice mycellium that isnt fruiting to fruit (after harassment by contams or mistakes etc)

if you just cased it 4 hours ago then the mycellium hasnt had time to patch itself and spread through the casing so cold shocking will only slow the growth of the myc through the poo or whatever... hence hanky ses wait till its FINISHED incubating (a week or so from now?) and THEN cold shock... before its journey to the moist environment
