You shouldn't cold shock cakes that are being put in a casing.

Dunk them without a cold shock because the cold tells them it's time to pin. Once in the casing it isn't immediately time to pin, it's time to go back into vegetative mode in the fruiting chamber until the myc colonizes the top layer of your casing, then fruit it.

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?

He wasn't cold shocking. Like he said, Hybernation. Big difference. He stored jars until he needed them in the fridge which by the way doesn't tell them to pin, putting them in the fridge tells them to stop growing..or slow down to grow very very slowly. If he puts it into the incubator after casing it, it will start growing quickly again, colonize the layer and be able to be fruited.

I would suggest a dunk for 24 hours but blue isn't a problem. Colors arent a problem unless theyre mold. They'll be dry (hense blue) and the water wil replentish for the casing..then add casing, mist, cover and incubate and check. It may take more then 2-3 days that it normally does before the myc starts comming through but it should happen pretty quickly.
