my experiment
    #3356519 - 11/13/04 06:19 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

so the reason for casing is to have a layer of (casing) over the myc to hold in moisture so i was thinking that i will birth some 1/2 pt cakes and dunk then roll them in a nice 60/40 or 50/50 mix what do you think?

yeah dude, thats basically the acepted method for cakes lol. u should dunk the cakes right in the jars and cold shock them, then drain the water and soon as they come out throw em in sum good fine verm. then set them on foil or spacers or whatever ans spray down with h202 solution until saturated int he pod.

oh, sorry i didnt see the coir part. coir sticks? but it dosnt hold much moisture.... i thinkt he roll thing is mainly used to hold water, not so much promote pin formation. but try this, and ee if u get better results.

Casings arent just to hold in moisture. It also produces a nice even pinset gives the mushrooms a place to grow into so you dont destroy substrae when picking them. Along with protecting from contams of course. A cake however is rolled to hold in moisture only. A ereal casing cant be done and if you try this you'll find that they do worse then straight verm. Straight verm is meant to hold in moisture. When you completly cover the cake it will easily consume the thin verm layer. A thick casing layer however needs coir or peat mixed in to airate it, it doesnt do any good though if its put on in such a thin layer as it would on cakes. I suppose you could roll them in it multiple times but youd need at least 5-6 rolls (1/4") and even then it would most likly perform shittier.
