Dunk w/ casing?
    #2398547 - 03/03/04 03:39 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Im trying this for the first time, and am doing BRF cakes which i intend to case in verm/peat moss. Assuming that my cakes are colonized 100%, as opposed to casing them right away, would it be benificial to cold shock and/or dunk the cakes before casing them? or should i case then cold shock the casings when they have colonized? thanks

much better to cold shock once the casing is colonised.
Dont forget, cold shocling isnt always needed.

Do not do it before, as you do not want to induce pinning
until the casing is colonised.
Same with dunking, a dunk now will not help you
as you want the cakes to crumple, not mush up into balls.

No cold shock or dunk is required at all. When you case the cakes you will want to really give it a good wetting and that is where the cakes will get their moisture from. I have never needed to cold shock any of my cased cakes I have just let them colonize in a dark closet for a few days then threw them in my terrarium and in 5 days they are fruiting like crazy.

I personally dunk all cakes that I am going to make casings with. They still seem to crubmle fine and the mycelium is always vigorous in recolonizing. It adds to the overall moisture content of the case. Mo re moisture means lots of big mushrooms.

YEAH, Canada ROCKS!
