Dunking casings
    #3330771 - 11/07/04 08:11 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Afoaf has a few questions about dunking casings. He is doing straw cased with 50/50. After the dunk should a fresh casing layer be added? If so should it be equal to the depth of the original casing layer? Also he is confused, he has read many times not to get the casing too wet because it will lead to contams. How can dunking be ok if that is the case? Also why is it ok to handle the casing this much and then leave it overnight to drain in the open air? Could a person just mist the shit out of a casing or inject water into the middle of it with a syringe instead of dunking?

NO. Don't recase.

If you recase it, you'll be burying all the hyphae. In addition, you'll have to force the mycelium to switch from generative to vegetative growth again so the mycelium can grow through the additional casing layer. This is unneccessary and counterproductive. You are wasting time, water, and nutes. Once the myc grows again, you'll have to AGAIN, change from vegetative to generative growth to pin them again... waste of time, nutes, and water again.

Unless there is a very specific reason(such as an overlay), don't recase.
