Dunking before first flush casing

It seems that everyone says to dunk only after the first flush of your casing because the casing already provides the necessary moisture. But it would seem to me that it couldn't hurt could it?

I dunked/cold shocked 12 PF jars for 24 hours before grating and casing and I had no trouble with contams.
My jars took 4 weeks to colonize due to low temps though, so I figured they were dry, but I don't know what people regularily experiance

Interesting, so you dunked the jars before you did the casing? Has anyone tried dunking the casing as a whole (not that it would be much different from soaking the casing material and dunking the jars).

I guess that would work, the only difference is I did it before to allow recolonization to be done with more water content, but really it should make a difference if you block of whatever is solid so you can take it out and then recase after.
