Dunk teck, cold shock simultaniously?
    #2527678 - 04/05/04 03:12 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey there,

I have a Dutch friend I go to college with who wanted me to ask a question in regards to an idea he had. Evars (his name) is a big advocate of the dunk teck.

This comming summer (back home in Holland, of course) he intends to grow in an area defined by higher than ideal temps. His solution was to do the dunk teck as normal, but use refrigerated water as opposed to the standard room temp stuff. In this way he hopes to give the cold shock and keep the cakes out of the nasty fridge, while also giving them the soaking the love.

As a side note, Evars wanted me to ask if any of you used H2O2 when dunking. He has used plain distilled water in the past, but is now beginning to wonder whether or not he should add a bit of H2O2 to the mix, despite the fact that distilled water is very pure. The only thing that has stopped him in the past from adding the H2O2 is that he thought it may do more harm than good.

What do you think? Any input on the above matters would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time,

Evars and The Fluff Master

If it's a cubensis, it doesn't need to be cold shocked. It does no good at all. It is normal to dunk in very cold water. The reason for this is to slow down bacteria growth while the cake/casing is dunking, and therefore dormant and unable to fend off the contamination itself. Use a tight sealing jar, and it doesn't matter how nasty your refrigerator is. Just clean the jar before opening. Some use 1 tablespoon of bleach per gallon of dunking water, but I just use plain tap water without problems.
