There is hardly any verm in my area, but what AFOAF has found is only the larger size.

Hey what are you guys all using fine for, casing and not BRF jars right? I ran a test with my last batch of jars to see fine vs. coarse colonization rates and the coarse is colonizing several times faster (due to less density I imagine). Why is fine better for casing, more even pinset due to smoother surface? How thick a casing layer of fine should be used?

So is it even worth it to try and crush up the larger stuff for use in cakes?

No!  For cakes you want the coarse stuff, you want the substrate to be fluffy for obvious reasons.  I am currently testing this personally, my coarse verm is colonizing several times faster! 

Heh, looks like I repeated my last post almost word for word.. guess I'm just anxious to drive to point home :wink:

course holds less water, finer holds more water, what good does it do to have your cakes coloinze real fast when you then have to figure a way to put moisture back in them? course is not better, the finer the better, an body who has been using this stuff long enough will agree....
