Good cobweb cure
    #361970 - 07/27/01 01:42 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

I just had my first bout with cobweb mold - its been thankfully basent in previous casings. However, after reading TMC, something occurred to me. Cobweb mold doesn't like high pH. One of the ingredients in casing in hydrated lime. I acytually use pickling lime as its a little purer product being food grade. However, lime is CaOH2 and has a really caustic nature. A light dusting of lime on the casing surface and misting using a sturated solution of limewater seems to have wiped it right out, and pinning and fruiting continues unhampered.

Pickling lime is available at grocery stores in the canning section - not all stores have it, but most do. Mrs. Wage's and Ball brands are the most common. Calcium hydroxide dissolves in water and will form a precipitate when saturated. The resultant supernatant is high pH limewater. If exposed to air, the pH will drop over time, but in a sealed sprayer, it should keep quite well for long enough to kill the cobweb mold. Its so cheap you could just make it up fresh daily. A teaspoon per 16Oz sprayer will more than saturate the water.

I guess I should have posted this in the contamination forum, but I'm sure its useful here or can me moved by a moderator if needed ;-)
