First casing
    #2346175 - 02/17/04 04:49 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I just made my first two casings today. Only used verm though. I put about 3/4 inch of very moist verm on the bottom, crumbled about 4 1/2 cakes per casing on top of that (about 1/2 inch), then covered with 1/4 inch of more verm then heavily misted it. Then I threw on some lids and put in my incubator.

I was just wondering if anyone had good success with useing 100% verm with nothing else. And I was wondering if i should mist it everyday until I see mycelium growing threw the top?

Plain verm works great

It works.

do you have to sterlize the verm for the casing? or do you just pour it straight from the bag?

Wet it and nuke for about 5 min, stirring halfway through. Should work out fine.
