Too late to dunk casing?
    #3753226 - 02/08/05 11:36 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I just picked my two casings about 3 or 4 hours ago, sprayed them down, threw a thin casing layer on top and put them back in their tub. One is 5 half pints WBS and the other is 6 both with Jiffy mix for casing in a gladware container. Both of them sharnk considerably. Is it too late to dunk them? Can I just fill the gladwares with some distilled water for 12-18 hours and drain the rest out?

Yes you can. Then repatch.

Casings will shrink noticably every flush... Honestly, I dont think a dunk will do you much good. Whole grains that are colonized dont hydrate well from a dunk. Mixing in verm with your WBS (either before PCing or while casing, after colonized) will help you rehydrate by dunking later. The best thing you can probably do is just make sure the sides are loosly filled with casing and keep the casing well misted and in high humidity.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
