A good ambient humidity level for casings is around 70-80%. I suggest at least sitting it in some sort of air-tight enclosure to let the humidity rise. Moist perlite would be a good idea too.

Light is not necessary, and too much light will damage mycellium. You could deep scratch, but you really shouldn't need to. If you really want to, use a flame-sterilized fork. Your problem could be with pH... if the casing is too acidic or basic pins will have a very hard time forming. You might want to get some pH papers from the drug store and test it out. I'm pretty sure your problem is with humidity though.... if raising the ambient humidity doesn't work, then try adjusting the pH with a light sprinkling of lime powder and then mist it down with a fine-mist spray bottle.

As for cold shocking, don't forget to seal your casing tray from the outside enviornment if you decide to do it... There's tons of potential contaminates floating around in a refridgerator.

About 5 or 6 days after I cased my batch, I put my casing in the refrigerator with the lid on. I left it in there over night and took it out in the morning. Later that day, it started to pin. I did the same with another casing and it pinned to.

I give cold shocking 2 thumbs up.

The cold shoching had nothing to do with your casing pinning. It was ready to pin anyways. IF cold shocking was required it would have been a few days after you put it in the fridge till it started to pin. Putting it in the fridge most likely stalled growth for you and you were probably 24 hours behind schedule after that

Pics of a 15 cup casing comming soon

Mad skills, you know this!!!
