Refrigeration ?
    #2987146 - 08/10/04 06:39 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I have 14 cakes that are completely colonized and some that are starting to pin. My air conditioner unexpextantely blew up, and my temps are 80-90 degrees. And unfortunately I had a death in the family and I have to take a short trip for 5 days(leaving tommorrow). I was planning on casing the majority of the cakes. So my question is should I birth all of them as cakes and leave them unattended, case them and leave them unattended, or refrigerate them, and (hopefully have my airconditioner fixed by then)?

Fridge is probably best, however if you were going to crumble them up to make a casing in a tray (a good idea, heard it can double the yield, mostly by giving more surface area) you could do that and then drop the prepared casing tray back in the incubator for the 5 days you'll be gone. It should be just about right and the mycelium will have likely colonized back together to form a nice layer, ready to transfer to the fruiting chamber.

thanks for the quick response. Is 85 degrees to hot for the fruiting chamber?

your fruiting chamber needs to stay around 70-76 F.

So should case the 12 cakes and incubate them for five days, using the higher temps to my advantage, or fridge them as cakes?

Yeah leave the two and see how they do in the higher temps, should slow them down if anything which is maybe a good thing, you have automatic air exchange right, to dilute the CO2? You could do tray casings of a few also and back into the incubator so they're ready when you get back, but don't fruit them until you fix the temps in the fruiter zone. Then the rest into the fridge for suspended animation to do whatever you will with later (perhaps after seeing how the cakes vs the tray casings works out).
