An extra cake...
    #2998138 - 08/13/04 12:56 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Well, about a week ago I made 8 wbs half pints. I figured I'd lose 2 or 3 to contams (still kinda new at this). So I planned on casing the ones that made it. Well I guess my half pints all wanted to be cased cause I didn't lose a single one to contams. So I cased as many as I could with the casing supplies I had on hand. Well I ran out with one cake left. Now I do have abd 64 ounces of popcorn. I was thinking about putting that popcorn in a bag and and just dumping that cake on it (after it's been soak, simmered, and pc'd, of course) in hopes og getting a large amount of substrate for my next batch of casing. I really don't want to mix up more casing mix just for one measely half pint. It's kinda messy so I'd rather make a large amount of casing mix and use it all up with a large amount of substrate. What do you think?

Yes that works, I took a few chunks of a cake I had crumbed to case and put them in with prepared corn in a large ziplock, sealed with a decent amount of air space and then smooshed it around real good - works like a charm.  I also used liberal amounts of H2O2 in the corn mix to help avoid contams since this method can be prone to going south in open air.  If you have a glovebox or similar (oven method) you may be able to skip using H2O2.  You likely could make several bags of corn (pounds and pounds and pounds) from one cake, but it sure would colonize fast if you use the whole thing.

Basically the same as g2g as noob said, except I guess it'd be c2g (cake to grain). :smile:
