niteowls Dunk TEK
    #3039305 - 08/23/04 01:31 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

This is the way that I prefer to dunk my cakes.

All my cakes are from pint jars not half-pints.

First I wash my PC out good. Then I put the cakes that Im dunking in to it.



Then I put the spacer on top of the cakes with a bottle of water to help hold them underwater.



Then I put warm water w/about 5% peroxide in. I fill it up untill there is about 2in of water over the spacer.



I let them soak for 10-18 hours and them put in FC.

I dunk between each flush.

if you had a pod set up.. bucket w/ geolite + top and aquarium pump..

dunk for a few hours in cool water then plop them in and see how it goes? what do you think?

sorry if this is a bad place to ask questions, just been browsin and didnt see any
kind of answer.

thanks.

I have found that dunking in warm water for 12-15 hours works better.

I have a pod set-up w/lava rocks instead of geolite. Tomorrow I will put the dunked cakes in a lid w/wet verm in the bottom, and some wet verm on top of the cakes and place in my pod.

You could always put some clean foil over the spacer if you are concerned about your spacers cleanliness.

I read somewhere here that dunking past 24 hours wasn't very good for mycelium and in fact would begin to kill it. Have you experienced anything like that when dunking past 24 hours?

I have changed my dunking times to 6-8 hours for 1/2 pints 10-12 hours for pint jars.

Adding the verm top and bottom will give enuf water during fruiting.

The long 24-36 hours was not as beneficial as I thought

Actualy it is verm.

It acts as a mini casing layer, adding water to the shroom.
