trying to salvage my first attempt, quite a debacle
    #3429323 - 11/30/04 08:22 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

well, my first attempt has sucked so far, but i'm a trooper, lol.

right now, i realized that my cakes were not going to colonize anymore (they were WAY too watered, newbie mistake). i was pinning in some of the colonized parts for a few days, so i knew i had to do something. i took the cakes out, they were mainly half verm, half mycellium. i scraped as much access mycellium off the cakes as i could, but it wasn't near perfect. i realized that these aren't pure mycellium, so i have to case them (as they'd certainly become contaminated i'd imagine if i didn't). i put the remnants in a big plastic bag and mashed it up, it ended up pretty brown from the verm.

if i case it, will i see any growth? i was getting pinning in parts.

any suggestions? they cakes were really wet, slippery to the touch.

i'm pretty screwed, but its a learning experience.

should i just continue with a casing tek and pray for the best?

I would say go for it, any reason not to at this point? If you were getting some pins, there is hope for growth!

I don't see any reason why not. At worst you won't get anything, which would of probably happened if you left them as cakes since they would probably contam. I would let it sit for a while before casing to let the myc. grow.

life is one big question when your starin at the clock
And the answers always waiting at the liqour store, 40 oz to
so I'll take that walk.
And I know that ohhhh...I'm not comin back
