Is cold shocking necessary? I understand that some strains respond well. Sorry if this seems like a stupid question.

Cold shocking is basically just a sure-fire way to make sure your mycelium knows that the temperature is dropping and it triggers it to say "Oh it's time to start making mushrooms?"

I personally think all CAKES should be dunked and cold shocked regardless of your temperatures etc, but casings that's up to the person who is fruiting it.

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?

i will be working with casings. as i understand it, the cake or casing would be placed in near 0C temps for 12-24 hours. is this correct?
