May Have Goofed ... Cold Shock!
    #3219313 - 10/05/04 07:25 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

i goofed on the cold shock technique i think .... rinsed 2 colonized cakes and broke them into chunks while in a zip lock. I realized i should have let them soak in water overnight. My solution was to add distilled h2o and let them sit in the water for 12 hours ... drain ... and rinse again. Will this work?

Actually I did this with the cakes I made that stalled coz the substrate was overcooked and completely dried out. And a couple of days later they are colonising the verm casing nicely... I think. Well it looks good anyway.

In a newbish way, I imagine breaking them up BEFORE dunking/soaking may be a really good idea because more surface area to hydrate then.

More risk for contams (slightly, but as long as your clean :thumbup:) and a little more difficult to work with bags with water then jars with water but other then that it should work better this way. It should also give the broken up myc a chance to recoupe a little.
