Dunk length
    #3218567 - 10/05/04 04:26 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I'm curious why such a long dunk time like 12-24 hrs is recommended. I would think that verm would soak up water like almost instantly. Is the mycelium really "dry" and needs to be rehydrated? Has anyone done a test to see if something like 5% weight is added to the cake on a 12 hour dunk, while 10% would be added to the cake on a 24 hr dunk?

the dunk will give the mycelium enough hydration to produce bigger, better and lots more fruit!
