Misting your substrate layer before applying top layer.

So my buddy told me dunking rye cakes before you case them is for the birds. He said to just mist the substrate layer before you apply the top casing layer. Will this direct misting cause any problems for the substrate layer? Will peroxide in the misting water hurt anything?

As long as you're putting in the recomended amount in it should be fine and yeah you don't really have to dunk unless for somereason it looks a bit dry but to each his own, Gl

I know a friend that always mists inbetween each layer. It hurts nothing, he does it because he does not dunk before casing and also to kill any spores that may have landed. He uses roughly 5-7 squirts with a light mister.
