can't get second flush on PF cakes?
    #2916535 - 07/22/04 05:11 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I am not new to this, but it has been several years. Anyhow, using the old PF tek, to the letter, I am only getting a single flush, not second flush. Cakes should still be good, and they look fine. All I can think is that it has been too hot lately. about 95 F most days for the last couple weeks. I tried cold shocking them, I put ice bags in the rubbermaid at night to lower the temp to induce pinning. I got pins, but they don't grow? It's been like this for almost three weeks. Pins form, but don't grow up. They turn that dark/grey color and get squishy so I pull them off. I don't have any way to lower the ambient temp other than waiting, no AC. any suggestions?

A Fan? I dunno :smile:

Put the setup in a cooler (if you have one, and it will fit) and surround it with some ice...that should help it stay frozen longer

if I mention anything about the posession or production of illegal mushrooms, I am making it up.

The high temperatures says for the mycelium to grow. After every flush, I would put the temperature up into the 80's after a good dunking and then bring it down. This would let it soak up the water good and have nice fat flushes. The only thing is 90's is too high to even incubate. The mycelium is probably struggling to even stay alive, and obviously nothing left in it to fruit mushrooms.

Whatever said here is not of my experience or knowledge. In fact, it was found off one of those prizes in a Cracker Jack box. I'm not sure what to think of this, so I've come here to share my interesting findings.
