So my friend got almost an ounce dry on the first flush

So my friend got almost an ounce dry on the first flush of a casing (50/50+) made from 8 half pint BRF cakes. How'd he do and will the second flush be more?

Hey, that's about 3.8g/cake. I'd think you should get more from a casing... shouldn't you?

Don't know. That's why he's asking. It was just the first flush. Maybe he can adjust conditions for a better hit on the second.

I don't know... but I've heard that some strains give you bigger second and third flushes.

Its more like less (since ALMOST an ounce and not quite) then 3.5 grams per cake. An ounce would be exactly 3.5 grams (1/8th) since theres 8 cakes (28 grams is how most measure ounces..we don't usually use "true ounce" weight which is slightly more).

8 cakes should have got you more I'd think but if you only made it into one thick casing (over 1 1/2 inches) you wouldnt get the optimum out of it. 8 1/2 pints is like 2 quarts I think which gets me about 50 grams per flush but thats using rye so I wouldnt expect as much from the cakes. Seems like an ok flush but probably on the low end. If it was me I'd shoot for 30-40 grams from 8 cased 1/2 pints but I've never used 1/2 pints or BRF so take that guess for what its worth.

That said, second flushes on grain are almost always bigger then first flushes. First flushes biggest key is even pinset. Timing is critical and even casing is as well. The pinset after the first flush usually evens itself off nicly though and its easy to get good pinsets for 2nd and 3rd flushes. First flush pinsets and yeilds take practice and even still it seems the general thought is 2nd flush is slightly bigger then first.

Without more info on what you did (details on light, air, water, casing, size of container and layers, timing ect) and pictures it would be hard to tell if you can optimize any better or how you could optimize better.

Each cake will pump out AROUND just over 10 grams in it life span.

The second flush might be bigger, and the third even bigger then that, but maybe not.

Many cube strians will give bigger flushes on flush # 3 or 2 etc, but its not just a question of genetics, what you do(fan, mist etc) play just as big a role.

So, there is no perfecrt answer for your question, but there is a good chance your second flush will be bigger, but maybe it will be about the same and the thrid flush will be the biggest, you have to wait and see.

One thing is for sure, with 8 cakes in that casing you are in for at least a couple of more flushed(provided you dont get contams)

At 10g per cake in it's lifespan and a first flush of 3.3 with 2 more good flushes due and some others as well it's seems like the consensus is he did OK and this is about normal??

My first grow was recent, I had 6 half pint PF cakes and got about 2 dried ounces from them. I cut the cakes vertically in half, then dunked and cold shocked them before putting them into a geolite pmp.
The first 3 flushes were nice, but the 4th going on now is just a few pretty big shrooms.
I have my first casing going too, looks like it is gonna be a good one! I used 3 cakes in a 10" round glass pan using vermiculite and coco choir. will post pics of it tomorrow or the next day!

Thats almost 10g per cake and thats in cake form. I think a cased cake would yeild more like 12-14 grams over 3 (especially 4) flushes if done right then..
