Casing Question?
    #2283262 - 01/29/04 10:38 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I am doing quart jars of bird seed. I am going to case when they are ready. Myquestion is how thick do you put the substrate. I am trying to find out which containers to buy for the casings.

as thick as you like, thicker the better. if you can prepare enough, to a max of about 5 inches. the casing layer should then be about a quarter of the substrate thickness, to a max of about 1.5 inches. do a search for a post called 'casing tubs 101' that i saw a while back.

:laugh: :kiss:sk

Anno has said up to 5" deep grain will work. I haven't gone that deep. 3" has been the max depth for me so far.

I would suggest you get trays at least 4" deep. That way you can include a sub-base case layer, a casing layer and even embellish the grains prior case/tray knock up with vermiculite to hold even more water content. WBS is rather dry stuff and water is key.

I was going to do it like your post starter. I just wasn't sure how deep to make the substrate.

Stamets says 6" deep should be the max. I would never personally make it anywhere close to that deep. I find 3" best.

8"x8" pans work well for 1 quart of grain.
