Dunking....Casing questions....
    #2410964 - 03/09/04 02:03 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I'm getting ready to case my 6 1/2pint jars in some containers I picked up at the store. Their measurements are 5x5x3. My question is this, I'm going to use a verm/coir mix so what is the best way to divide the jars up into the containers?? Should I do 2 per container and have 3 containers, or 3 per container and have only 2??

Also, I know to crumble the cakes and all of that, but when it comes to dunking a casing how do you do that?? Do you dunk the cake first, then crumble it??

And finally, once I put these containers in my fruiting chamber, do I poke holes in bottoms of the containers then or beforehand while they are returned to the incubator?? Thanks guys!!

I'd do less cakes in more containers, that way
if you get contams in one, you're not losing
too much.

when you first start, it's all about risk mitigation.

dunk, then crumble, if you have your heart set
on crumbling.

no holes in the bottom, in fact, make sure the
bottoms of the containers are covered in dark
paint or foil to prevent light from reaching the
bottoms and causing gap fruits.

If i was in your shoes I would take 2 liter plastic pepsi bottles and cut the tops off so the bottom is around 5"-6" tall. and put 1 cake in each bottom, put a layer on the bottom then set each cake in and cover till you have a nice layer of casing. 3/4" is fine. I did this to my first cakes and did rather well. youll have 6 casings and there is no need to dunk or crumble. the casing will supply enough water.

I'm just wondering if going through the hassle of dunking each cake is actually worth it. I'm going to crumble and case these things asap, so would you actually think going through the dunking process is necessary??
