Foil VS. Lids / CBK's bottom watering tek * 8

ComebackKid's Bottom Watering TEK
Foil VS. Lids


Introduction

Alright...
You have put in the work.
You've birthed your cakes.
You've done your research.
Your cakes are being dunked and awaiting a roll.
Your shotgun fruiting chamber is built to spec... but you havent decided on weather or not to set your cakes on foil or jar lids.

Im going to put an end to the dellema
I say why not use both?
(MrMazdar, this ones for you)

Everyday I see proud newcomers posting pictures of their cakes that have started to pin. All their work is finally paying off.
But I rarely see anybody bottom watering their cakes to maximize end results.

You've made it this far, why not put forth a little extra effort?


Difficulty: Easy!


The pourpose of this tek:

I want to make bottom watering as easy and readily available as I can for newcomers and all PF cake growers alike.
I believe it should be common practice like the dunk & roll.


This is how I bottom water my PF cakes.


What you'll need:

- 2 piece mason jar lids
- Aluminum foil
- Scissors


Step 1:

Rip off a piece of foil big enough to set both pieces of your jar lids on comfortably. Leave at least 2 inch clearance of foil on the outside edges of your lids.

Step 2:

Fold the foil in half width wise creating a square.
I do this to reinforce the tinfoil. It helps to prevent holes in the foil that may leak water later on down the road.

*Note*
A more ideal situation would be to use plastic lids of course. Keep a close eye on the recycling every week for snug fitting lids :thumbup:

Step 3:

Create a foil sandwich by placing the larger lid piece on the bottom and the lid cap on top.
Make sure that the mouth of the lid is facing up and the lid cap is positioned with the underside facing up.

Step 4:

Gently push the lid cap through the ring, forcing the foil into the mouth. Make sure you push it all the way to the bottom.

Step 5:



Form the foil to the inside ring with your thumbs. Bend the excess foil to a 90 degree angle and snip off the excess with scissors.

-------------------------

You can now place this inside your SGFC. Or if you're someone who always has something on the go and would like to use your lids for another jar you can check out the next step.

Step 6:

Carefully remove the lid cap from the foil. You will most likely need to remove it from the ring and bend out the side of the foil to get at the cap.
You can then re-form the foil to the inside of the ring once the cap has been removed.


Further instruction:

Simply set your cakes inside your foil dish. Mist and fan per usual. Then once your cakes develop a pinset, you can introduce bottom watering by filling up the foil dish with water. Remember to change or refill the water once a day or as needed.

For information on how bottom watering works and why it's benificial check out Violet's TEK.

And there you have it folks. Not only do you have something for your cakes to sit on. But you can now use your foil to bottom water your PF cakes.

Aaha I'm glad you were the first to comment! Everytime I think of foil Vs lids I think back to the time where you and another member were having a heated debate on someones thread over which was better :lol:

They will still appreciate bottom watering. I haven't had any drown pins yet, only thirsty ones :wink:

Yes, but no sooner!
