Dunking before birthing?
    #3302095 - 10/31/04 08:29 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I have read a lot of teks on dunking before birthing and it seems like a good idea. The tek that came with my kit (university scientific) recommends to remove fully colonized cake from jar cut in half then put back in clean jars, ie.wash the old ones with soapy water and put the cakes back in and refill with water and refrigate for 24 hrs. This seems to be exposing them to a greater risk of contamination then just removing the lid filling with water then refrigating for 24 hrs. Is it really necessary to cut the cakes in half and would you even need to wash the jars if you just added water prior to refrigating.

I remove the verm layer.Fill with water,let set 24 hr's and birth.Then roll.
I have read that cutting your cakes in half will produce more shrooms.Don't know am already working on casing.Think that will produce more.GL

That does seem like a safer method, just to remove the vermiculate layer fill with water and refrigate. The whole cutting the cakes in half thing probably does result in a better flush but removing from jars cutting in half then rewashing jars and putting the 2 pieces back in seems to be exposing them to a much greater risk of contamination and I kind of wonder if this is a wise move for a first attempt.
