few questions?
    #3570108 - 01/02/05 06:05 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

ok a few questions that have been naggin at me.
1) when dunking does the water have to be sterilized...or do u just dunk in cold water?

2) is it much better idea to use distilled water over tap water?

3) i have a lot of cakes to dunk so i was wondering whether its ok to dunk a lot in the same container....or is it too risky, contams wise?

4) what are the advantages of rolling?

5) to practice casing...i was thinking of breaking up a few jars in a bag like they said in that tek...is this a good way to learn how to case...or should i just go straight to rye or somethin?

thats all i can think of now...thanx in advance!

Depends on your water quality,i've had no personal problems with tap water.

If you can afford it,why not use it?

All in the same container is fine if they will fit! You could just devide them up into a few containers just to play safe if you like.

4) what are the advantages of rolling?




Rolling,along with end casing improves overall moisture content. Your end results can never exceed the available moisture per cake/casing. Remember,for a 100 gram wet flush,90ml of available water reserve is needed.

Use a few jars to make a casing. PC some coir and verm to use as casing material and have a go. Cakes do very well in the first few flushes when cased. They are much better producers than free standing cakes.

Why bang the cakes around just use the same jar and you may as well shock em at the same time.



Much safer if they don't come out of the jar till birthing.  :thumbup:
