contradiction?
    #2880306 - 07/12/04 01:56 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i think i found a kinda contradiction.

many teks say to put a rain guard made of plexiglas into your grow chamber so that when you spray water droplets dont land on the cakes.

but then, your supposed to dunk the cakes.....

see what im getting at?

anyways, i also got a question. now when i take the cake from my jar, ima dunk and roll it. now when you guys dunk your cakes, what do you use? im sure i could find a container large enough to hold the cakes, but keeping them submerged, what do you guys do to keep them submerged?

Drops falling from the fruting area on your cakes can pose a contamination threat. Dunking is usually done using sterile procedures. Most people use the same jar they were colonized in if the cake shrinks, or a size larger. Anything that you can clean well, and use a lid to hold the cake down will work.

aight so if i just get a larger jar, put the cake in and close it up with the lid, that will work just fine?

oh, and when i do dunk and roll, ill take some water, bowl it, let it cool, then ill put the cake into the jar, add water, and close it up? let it sit for 12 hours, take it out, roll it in dry verm, and then lightly mist?

should i sterilize the dry verm, and bowl the water to sterilize it?

A fresh ziplock bag works good too. Just open it up and plop the cake in. Fill it up with water and a splash of h2o2 and squeeze the bag with one hand until the water is up at the seal and then zip it shut.
Into the fridge it goes for a day and your ready to fruit,crumble and case,or whatever suits your fancy!
