I cooked my cakes...
    #2880263 - 07/12/04 01:46 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm using an autoclave to sterilize my cakes. problem is is taht sometimes it won't pressurize right away, so it just gets really hot (and stay like that for about 5-10 minutes) then it pressurizes, this just happened with some cakes and well they shrunk a fair bit and you can even see that the color of the cake is a more borwn color now. so what do you do with an overcooked cake? hehehe. I was thinking since I don't actually have anything growing in it yet if I just pour in some sterile water in or even just use a low spore to water ratio when I innoculate them and let them soak up some water. has anyone ever experienced anyhting like this or used the dry heat method?

Prob is, most of the avalible sugars have caramelised (due to the heat), so theree is now less avalible food, so less for the shrooms to grow on.

I would bin the lot, and make a fresh batch myself.

This is why you don't use dry heat.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
