Dunk and Roll question
    #2743675 - 05/29/04 07:52 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I am in the process of dunking some of my cakes after their first flush and I have read about dunking and rolling. My question is, what exactly does rolling in dry vermiculite do for the cakes? Is it better than just patting the cakes dry then puting them in the chamber to fruit?

Same principle behind casing. Helps keep your cakes a bit moist, slighly increases yield and pinset when done correctly.

Ok, the reason you roll it in dry verm is cause it sticks to a wet cake better. Once it's on spray it moist (without washing it off  :wink: )

Naw, this is for people who don't wanna break up the cakes to case them. Sort of a semi casing you could say.

ok, i did a dunk and roll on 3 cakes on monday and tuesday before fruiting them (straight out of icubation). How long should it take before i see pins if humidity and light is good and i fan the rubbermaid once a day??

Also theres white fuz covering half of each cake. Is this fuz just mycelium growing over the verm? or is it an odorless bacteria? it looks white and the only smell i smell is of mushrooms so im not sure what it is. I havent seen any pictures of a dunked and rolled cake growing fuz.

Usually 24-48 hours after you dunk and roll your cakes the mycelium will start to grow very rapidly so the fuzz is probably just the mycelium going through fast growth.

All of my cakes consitantly pin 7-9 days after birthing.

Fan more than once a day. Fan at least 3 times a day. The more you fan the faster the mushes grow. "This is just my experience" Its amazing the difference in growth if you only fan 1-2 times a day as apposed to 5-6 times.

Good luck

do you cold shock between each flush, or just dunk at room temperature?

Cold shocking is usually done when you start trying to trigger pinning for the first time, and afterwards you just dunk since your mycelium is already pinning.

Well, I put the cakes back in the jars and redunk between every flush. Now shocking isn't needed at this point but I do it anyway. (putting em in the fridge gets em out of my way when they are dunking and puts them in her way. I can live with that  :thumbup: )
