Are you fanning them regularly? Whats your setup? Have you tried rolling them in verm?

Anyway, I had trouble getting my cakes to pin so I cased them and now they're doing fine!!!

Temps fluxuating by 15 degrees on a daily basis may also be partially to blame. You will have better chances for inducing pinning if you can keep them at a stable 75F. Also increase air exchange frequency.

yeah, that could be a huge reason. Gas exchange is key. And you should really consider dunking the cakes for 12 - 24 hours. I would imagine that your cakes have lost a lot of o moisture sitting for 4 weeks.

i agree with psilocyber, one major requirement for pin formation is a lowering of temps.

85 is incubation temperature,they may need a cold shock. (put in fridge for 12-24 hrs.

also, you are trying to simulate nature, and in nature there is no end to the fresh air available, make sure you fan those babies.

good luck.

AIR AIR AIR AIR AIR AIR AIR AIR is the most important thing to pinning. I hear alot of talk about temps but I have never paid any attention. I get fruits when it's 60 deg. or it's 90 deg. what ever temp my house is that day no big deal. Once full colinization is complete out they come and into the chamber they go. I don't even own a humidity gauge. But one thing I know makes a big difference is AIR AIR AIR AIR AIR exchange. Oh yes I fully agree, Case them, dunk and roll them, crubmble and case. Anything. I used to have problems with light pinning on cakes but when I started to use the dunk and roll tek, Man I get so many damn shrooms the cakes fall over from the sheer numbers. :thumbup:
