Then you didnt follow his casing tek correcting..you should have incubated untill the myc was just popping through then it goes in the chamber. It won't colonize quickly in lower temps. However I think you'll be ok...if you can see through the casing ans see the myc below even if not on the surface light will get to it and your first flush may be a little smaller but second flush and third will probably make up for it..be patient a little more and next time leave it in the incubator a little longer. Every strain varies too so you'll have to tweak initiation time for each strain but this a key part in getting an even first flush pinset.

Cold shocking will stop growth to iniate pinning, is is not what he was asking about. It is done to help iniate pinning on casings too and helps just the same to get it pinning sooner but the casing layer should be comming up even before you do that. Its also not needed with cubiesand is only done with cakes and not casings because its easier to do with cakes..they should be dunked anyway so why not put them in the fridge too..plus during the dunk they are succeptable to contams (standing water) and the fridge will slow down contam growth.

When myc comming up means a few good spots..not when you just barly see any. Then you shouldnt be patching the very wispy stuff thats just comming up or at all if its comming up evenly, only patch over the big spots and only put VERY little..like 1/16-1/8 of an inch on top..if you mist it well in a few days it should be comming through all around the casing a little bit and then more in the comming time until it pins. A picture would really help..
