You can also mix the flour and vermiculite before adding the water. It has much the same effect.
Rather than wasting the aluminum foil, why don't you just put the jars back in the box they came in and close the lid. Makes a handy way to store them and blocks out the light.

I have to agree with funkyballoon, mixing the substrate "his" way is much easyer. I?ve been doing it this way since after my first attempt using the PF tek 4 jears ago.

Another usefull thing:
You can make a double cased cake by simply putting an additional 1/5 inch layer of dry vermiculite on the bottom of your PF style yar. When you birth the cake, it has allready the casing layer on top of it. Just moisten it a little with a sprayer and wait for the flush!

What would be the difference if you just put some damp vermiculite on after you birth the cake rather than putting it in the jar?

Cuz it would be a bit hard to tell how much your jars are colonized if you can't see the bottom, no? And the cake would be a little bit smaller too.

It?s usefull to sterilise the vermiculite for the casing. This way, you do it all at a time.
Also the mycelium grows a little bit into this bottom layer, so it fruits earlyer once out of the jar.
And, in case your mix is slightly too wet, the bottom layer absorbs the droplets of water that would otherwise cummulate at the bottom.

Damn that's a good idea. 4 of my jars have little pools of water at the bottom. Next time I a little bit of dry V in the bottom of each jar to avoid those nastyy puddles.
thanks

Anno: you make some good points. I think I might do that. I'm in the middle of my 1st harvest, and I've noticed that the cakes love to have vermiculite on BOTH ends....

another quick story. I picked 15g wet off of one of my cakes, and I applied the PF double ended casing tek AND the drink straw tek. When I was done I had a very bluish cake standing there in the terrarium all freshly dressed with new vermiculite. It's pinning already and it was 2 days ago. The cake hasn't even turned white (totally, it's less blue) yet.
