Dunking Casings ???
    #3405931 - 11/24/04 10:45 PM (12 years, 12 days ago)

If i were to want to do this how exactly would one go about dunking a casing.

should i cold shock as well????

these are only my 3/4 casings so yeah my first 2 did well but dried out alot in the later flushes

Submerge put drain holes in the bottom so excess water will escape then dunk in water, IMO casings dont need dunking, just apply another casing layer and spray it down.

great thinking there phantasm, you are almost always going to get two schools of thought here so just give both a try and see what works best for you.

and now my bud's way: case out of the jar, flush, and then dunk. repeat 3 to 4 times.

never recase and never mist anything and flushes come every week this way. pinsets are fine as long as things don't get overlay.

and my bud always dunks in the fridge, so you get the cold shock although i doubt it is needed at all.

and aussieone's way works great too i am sure just see how it plays out for you.

good luck.

after dunking my popcorn casing, which gave out a weedy second flush. It's now pinned a LOT of very fat looking shrooms. It was a hassle though. Some of the substrate collapsed while rinsing and I got crap all over the kitchen.

I wouldn't want to go against the misting theory, but for anyone unable to get good results this way, or just plain lazy, I would recommend dunking casings.

have something clean and heavyish to hold the casing under.. it floats. Also use a little peroxide in there as well if available.

well this is going to be a great experiment becasue the 2 casings were all made frm the same mycelium they contints each and i G2G transferred these pints. So in theory they should react the same they pinned on the same day so we will see.

yep, always something one would not think of, i really doubt a popcorn casing would hold to well together during a dunk. (would have to be really gentle) but i hate popcorn so i am not the one to comment on that really. just never worked that great for my bud.

now WBS on the other hand does fine.

okay well my experiment is finished today and here are the results

Casing 1: (brazillian G2g transfer)
was recased and saturated and allowed to fruit it produced 86.3 grams wet weight all large mushrooms but only about 15-20 of them. hollow stems all together i was pleased with this

Casing 2: (same brazillian G2G transferred mycelium)
Was dunked and cold shocked for 12 hours it was then recased moistened and allowed to fruit with 3 dahys it had caught up to the first casing
the wet weight was 223.3 grams all medium sized mushrooms with thick solid stems and meaty caps approx 50-60 of them

so all in all i think i will dunk and cold shock from now on

-mike

p.s. both casings are in the fridge right now going for a swim third flush here i come
