Cake and casing question
    #380542 - 08/28/01 09:42 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I'll be making a 50/50 casing and i was wondering about how much casing material (in weight) is needed to case one BRF cake (250ml jar). The casing material is a home made compost(horse dung+poting soil+straw) ready to pasteurize and then case, i've made 2Kg of this compost.

Peace,
MAIA

I'm not sure how much it is going to weigh. This depends on how heavy your compost is... But you're going to need almost the same amount of casing material that you will crumbled cakes...

Perhaps i should make the question diferently, weight is not the best thing to compare, sorry for my dumb ass question.
If you have one 250ml colonized cake how many 250ml portions of compost will be enough to case that cake ?

Peace,
MAIA

I still don't know the answer, but I can guess a pretty close amount... Think of it this way:
You put 1 inch of casing material on the bottom. Then you put 1 and a 1/2 inch of crumbled cake, then a 1/2 inch of casing material on top. They both equal out to 1 and a 1/2, so they should be almost the same amount. You might need a little more casing material...

A bottom layer is not needed. Just put 1/2 to 1" on top and go for it.

i dont know who/how whoever came up with the casing tek, but it seems like a good call to use the bottom layer, if anything, it can keep the contaims from the container from getting up to the substrait. (even if the container was sterilized, something has landed on it between the time you killed what was on it and the time you put your casing together)

You approach the turnstiles and know
that when you get there you have to give
the man two dollars or he won't let you
inside but when you get there everything
goes wrong.

One half inch of perlite on the bottom, 1/2 - 1 inch casing material on top. That not 50/50.

Shit! I still can't make my self clear, blame on me!!!
What i want to do is spawn the compost with the cake then had a top layer of 50/50, so actually what i meant is how much compost to i need to use with the cake. This is what happens if you do code (work) and follow this board. Sorry!!!

Peace,
MAIA
