Casing Question plus a few others
    #3165969 - 09/22/04 07:23 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hey, I remember reading casing method where you cut the cake into small discs and casing them. verm/discs/verm Does this casing work good? I am going to case 2 of my jars out of my 5 jars, plus this is my first grow.

I also have some other questions
1.What temperature should I set the oven to to sterilize perlite?
2. What temperature for vermiculite?


Thanks

You can put the perlite into a cooking pot with water and steralize it over the stove, Put the amount of vermiculite into a microwave safe dish and put it on for a few sessions, i like to do 2 3min on high and it works fine :grin: btw im not sure about the top question, looks like it would probably work, make a few normal ones just to be on the safeside :wink:

So for vermiculite just 2-3 minutes total? Should I wet it down or something before I put it in?

yep wet it down more than you need becuase it tends to dry out a bit in the microwave.

What temperature should I set the oven to to sterilize

Ovens are not very effective at sterilization, though they're good at pasteurizing. Fortunately, casings rarely need anything more than pasteurization.

So does anyone have any experience doing casings with cutting the cakes in little discs?
