You can but i doubt you'd need it, the cake should have plenty of water and it should be ready to be cased, so say coldshocking and dunking b4 you case is better but ive never really experimented but either way should turn out dandy :thumb up: gl

Definately dunk.  It gets more moisture in that substrate for your mushrooms to produce awesome fruits.

Also, do NOT cold shock if you're casing.  Cold shocking is for when you're ready to fruit.. don't forget you have to put your casing in your incubation chamber again until the myc breaks through the casing layer.. cold shocking induces pinning, and we don't want pinning until the myc is at the surface ready to pin and get light.

Good luck bro. :thumbup:

Thanks for some direction with my guitar playin too man. :wink:

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

what about cold shocking the casing in the fridge for 12-24 hrs before birthing, not when you actually put it together?
