Size of trays? (casing)
    #2668568 - 05/12/04 03:07 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

What size trays do you guys generally use for your casings? I'm talking about the aluminium disposable trays. I want to make 3 casings out of a dozen 1/2 pints. Is 8" x 8" too big?

Depth is the important thing if you want to get big fruits. A minimum of 5-7cm substrate depth works fine for me.

5-7 cm? I was thinking of just having about an inch of substrate... so this would produce much smaller fruits? I don't necessarily want big fruits.

I thought if I spread the substrate out to about an inch it would cover more surface area, and create more fruits. I would rather have a larger quantity of smaller (not like miniature, but medium) fruits.

Would an inch of substrate create mini-fruits? Has anyone had experience with casing in those casserole (~8" X 8") trays? I'm not sure how large of a tray 4 jars should cover...

deeper substrate will give you large fruits and more flushes id imagine  :mushroom2:

In my area a good sized cat pan is cheaper than the aluminum things... And They are reuseable, etc... 4" is a pretty good case.

Each one of these has a quart of substrate in it. (4 half pints)

They are the glad containers that they call deep dish. I use them cause they are clear. I wrap them in foil so light can't get to them but if it should stall I can take it out of the foil and see if there are any contams saving myself a shitload of time and preventing the casing from getting real bad and spreading the bad spores around my chamber.

IME with closets, not much drips..water builds up on the bottom mainly..I think he put some sort of pan down under it to catch it like most do. If you dont have a way to do that with your closet like me you have to towel it up every few days.

Thinner substrate (and more surface area to compensate) will give you more overall yeild but thin to a certain point. I'd say 4-5 cm is optimal IMO if were talking grains (like 1 3/4"-2") but you can go as small as 1". Just expect small fruits..if you do it correctly though there should be lots of them.
