Can you start a casing with old cakes and successfully
    #24763326 - 11/06/17 10:43 AM (3 years, 5 months ago)

I have a few cakes that have given me 2 flushes. Can I rejuvenate them and turn them into a successful monotub by breaking them up and mixing them in with 5lbs of casing mix? Or would that be a waste of material?

Best regards!

They are weak  use fresh spawn...you will likely only get contams

It doesn't matter what i think of you...all that matters is clean spawn

Technically yes you could. But the real answer is no

So it’d be better to just do an ethanol extraction on the old cakes and start fresh?

no you toss. dont try to eat or extract actives from spent cakes. they are spent and youd need to extract hundreds of cakes.

bury them outside with some straw and shit. or just toss.

No you toss those cakes.

By the way the actives are water soluble. You would use a boiling water extraction.
Don't extract cakes :thumbdown:
