Make sure you use the 2-1-1 ratio and your cakes consistency will be fine.

If you birth cakes too early they will contaminate.

Im not sure what you mean by consistency but if you birth your cakes to early when there not fully colonized it exposes them prematurely to contaminants and might get infected by mould when pins start to form thats the time when the should be birthed.

You cant really birth them to late. The myc just sits there and waits for you to tell it to pin (gas exchange, light, humidity ect). Its best if you wait a few days after you see full colonization.
