How much from a casing?
    #3143608 - 09/16/04 03:12 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

How much dry weight can you get from a 1/2 pint casing if everything goes well? And how much weight is lost from drying mushies?

Depends on too many variables to say one number.

I would say some where between 1 gram and 20 grams dry.

See what I mean? Too hard to make a prediction based on the very limited info you gave.

About 90% of mushrooms are water, so you will lose about 90% of the weight when you dry. 100g wet will turn into roughly 10g dry.

I will just tell you from personal experiance, I cased 12 1/2 pints (PF) in verm and pulled 700g fresh. This dried to a bit under 2 1/2 oz dry.

So 700/12=58.33g fresh per cake theoretically, and since mushrooms are supposed to be between 90% and 92% water (i believe; mine seemed fairly thick which is why they dried at close to 90% water) that should be between 4.5 and 6 grams.

Really these are just general figures taken from my grow. I don't know if having a larger casing works more effeciently than individual jars, but it is easier to take care of, heh

So if you didn't bother to read through ALL of that about 5 grams is what you should be looking at

happy tripping

o i forgot one thing... this was only from the first flush. I had a trip planned far in advance and had the chuck the grow when I left, its a shame really. So if you are dunking between flushes you can probably assume getting another flush around this size and then hopefully one or two decent ones thereafter. Man I wish I got to finish that fucker off

so you can always expect more from a dunked casing than a dunked cake?

You can always expect more from a casing then a cake period.

Off of quarts I get about 15-30 grams dry. A 1/2 pint is like a 1/4 of that so I'd say anywhere between 0 and 7 grams. Thats per flush and probably about 2 or 3 flushes. I'd say you'll probably end up with almost a half when all is said and done.

Im doing my first casing using a 1/2 pint cake. The strain is huautla. The first flush will be done in probably 4-5 days. I counted around 60 mushrooms growing. Id say about 15 aborts. I have vermiculite and peatmoss for the casing layer and vermiculite and brownrice for the substrate. I started this casing on sept. 2, and it started pinning on sept 12.

I think your going to end up with much less then you think. Thats about what I get for a quart casing (4 times the substrate). I think more may abort then you think, it just always seems like alot more then it really is. Maybe not, but thats what I think. I've only worked with Z and Brazil so maybe Huautla is a much larger flusher then my strains but you should post back here when you get the final weight. Not only for my own curiousity but it should help the thread starter.

ok. i was wrong about my estimate. I had a 2nd flush of a dying cake that had 3 mushrooms that grew huge, and the one that i just got done pickin were much smaller. thats why i thought otherwise. i just got done picking about 25% of the first flush and it came out to 12 grams wet. ill post when i pick the rest, probably tomorrow. hahaha geez i was sooo far off, being blazed didnt seem to help at all. i was typing that post for about 1/2 hour last night.lol

oh btw, i have read in a few places that the huautla strain doesnt lose as much weight when dried as most do. we'll see soon.

If you look in the growlogs you might be able to figure something out but I wouldn't lose much thought over the whole thing.

Here, one shows 200g wet flush from 1&1/4 of wbs.
