Casing Q
    #2787625 - 06/12/04 01:36 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all. I'm making my first casings today with a buddy, but i just did something and am not sure if it was the best thing. I saw that my cake had a little green on it, and i remembered reading somewhere that the green stuff starts from the inside and works out. So i busted it open expecting to get a cloud of green dust in my face, but instead opened up to a perfect cake. I just grabbed out the contamed area (very small and isolated) and put the two chunks of cake in some distilled water to rehydrate. This was after the cake had already tried to squeeze out a flush, but was pretty unsuccessful. Was this a bad thing to do? It wouldn't be too much of a shock for a cake to have been broken open then shoved into water, would it? This is after a flush so i should dunk for 24-36 hrs right? :mushroom2:

All you can do is try to fruit them. Next time put a little h202 in the water. If there were any contam spores on the cake they can spread fast durring the dunk

Some casing methods crumble it into the tub, which is a bit harsher than splitting it in two, so I don't think that will upset it too much.

I am not sure how a fruited cake will perform in a casing, the mycelium needs to colonize the casing layer, which should be done while the mycelium is in its growth phase.

Also, if you want to go with casings I would recommend using grains for you next project.

Hope this helps, and good luck.

You can case BRF and you do not want the casing layer to be colonized, otherwise it serves little purpose and may slow your grow. Also he never said he was using PF tek anyway...

Hrethic: Don't dunk for more than 24 hrs, breaking it in half should be fine. Do you plan on putting the cake back into fruiting conditions or casing it?
Likely the contam will come back, but I don't know, mabye you'll get lucky.

Good luck :crazy:

You don't want it over-colonized, but you do what the mycelium to run through the casing level.

He did say he is using a cakes, and is using a cake that has already produced a flush, before he cased it, which I think may not work out, but I am interested to see the results.

I don't think he plans on casing though, he never meantioned it in his post. I think what he wants to do is take the two pieces of his cake and then fruit it again, but I think it would grow pretty small shrooms if he was using a half pint.

People have used cakes after one flush for casing before, and it does work alright, but I have never done it.

Yeah, sorry guys, i was pretty unclear with what the hell i'm actually doing. I broke apart a PF cake that i had fruited once already (very small crappy shrooms) and then put it in some water (i'll be using H202 10/100 next time) and then i broke it apart further and put it in a casing. I used that cake plus another one that i had ready, crumbled it all and cased in verm. Right now it's sitting at a nice 85 degrees in pure dark... i'm crossing my fingers. Thanks for the responses everyone! :mushroom2:
