Should I cold shock between flushes?
    #3594731 - 01/07/05 07:00 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Should I cold shock between flushes or just dunk and roll? I hope cold shocking is okay because the first of my first cakes went in the fridge a few hours ago. Is this okay or should I just dunk the other two cakes with no cold? Any of you experienced growers have results to support the great info you will give me?

Cold shocking only really helps the initial pinset after that it only slows your cakes. You see recasing your cakes will require the myc to grow back through the verm layer again and this will be hampered by the cold shocks retarding growth effect.

i've noticed nothing but slowing down by coldshocking between flushes. i actually got my second flush exactly a week after the first one without the cold shock. before, when i didn't know better... it took around two weeks because of the cold shock and the pinset wasn't any better for it.
