Okay I'm making a casing tonight and I am going to try to cold shock the casing this time..........do I cold shock now after i make the casing......or later when the casing layer becomes colonized?

Later when it's colonized, nearer to the fruiting stage.

JMO from what I have gathered.

The temperature in your incubation chamber will be higher that your fruiting chamber. That's enough of a trigger. You can put it in the fridge for a while between and it won't hurt. The jury is out on if it helps.

The temperature drop sends the signal that summer has gone to fall, and it's time to get busy. Some people like to really drop the temperature. Others don't worry about it so much.

Don't panic!

Tip, don't incubate too long during casing colonization, this timing should be directly related to aggressiveness of the strain grown. Most times I only incubate 2-3 days before fruiting. Read this:
