Argh, I wouldn't do it!

Alcohol evapourates, bleach and peroxide decompose, lye will just sit there and mess things up. If it's strong enough to stop contams it will stop myc growth.

If you have like 15 casings though, might as well spray one and compare it.

If you've only got one, I wouldn't do it either.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

If you were to mist the top of a casing with a low-concentrate lye solution, would that help guard against contams, while not inhibiting mycelium growth? Has this been done before?

kramer don't like it...
lye is poison :thumbdown:
