Make sure you put the casing into your fruiting tub before mycelium completely colonizes the casing layer. You want a surface that can support primordia growth, and if it's completely taken over by mycelium you're going to have major issues getting pins to start.

In my opinion most people overdue the incubation period of their casings which results in pinning problems for just that reason. 2 days is the most I let casings go in incubation.

Read the article Damn_Skippy linked and study the pictures, that will explain alot to you.

2 days max, huh? how about if you've got a relatively deep casing, like about an inch and so after 2 days theres no myc poking through yet, or maybe just one small spot? i understand that you don't want a whole bunch of overlay...

definantly go check out that link from damnskippy though...very helpful...it takes a lot of the little things that you may have read around here and ties them all together in one useful faq...good stuff

Those casings all are ready to have a SMALL amount of casing mix applied to the white spots poking through. Then it should look completly black. Mist well and THEN fruit. There shouldnt be any mycelium visible when you birth the casing, it should all be JUST below the surface though so if you look closly at a nice airey casing layer you can see it just below.

1/2" casing depth maximum is what I like to use. At 1/2" a casing layer colonizes JUST below the surface in 48 hours almost precisely, and is sent to fruiting chamber immediately.

1" is too thick, keep it thin and simple.
