My First Stab at Rye and Casing... ***PICS***
    #3830269 - 02/24/05 11:25 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

OK so I decided to try my hand with rye and casing for the first time.  Just wanna give props real quick to those who've given the wealth of knowledge that I've used thus far:

Magash: Props on the Rye Tek... I've read so much on here about peeps having probs with water content with rye.  Follow this tek and you won't go wrong....

Hyphae:  Props on the Water Content Tek...  This is by far the most informative post I've read on here...  Should be on every caser's favorites...

Ok, on to the pics, but let me explain where I am thus far.  I inoculated 6 qts; 3 with GT, 3 with PR.  Shook the jars at about 30% colonization then waited for them to fully colonize.  Didn't have an incubator at the time (long story, grrr), so they incubated in my closet at ~78-81 F...  Once fully colonized, I cased the GTs with 50/50 coir/verm with about 1 tablespoon powdered eggshell per quart of casing mix.  This is my first time working with PR and have read a lot of horror stories about how fast colonization is, and how much of a problem overlay can be with this strain.  So, I incubated the cased GTs for 3 days, then cased the PRs, and placed all 6 casings directly into fruiting chamber.  The GTs were cased 5 days ago, PRs only 2 days ago.  In the pics below, the 3 lesser-colonized casings on the left are the PRs, but notice how fast they've colonized after 2 days only... Ok, onto the pics now (for real) :grin:

First pics are for comparison on colonization times:

Left: Casings yesterday (4 days for GT, 1 for PR) Right: Casing today (5 days for GT, 2 for PR)

And these are closeups of the casings taken today...
PR:


GT:


BTW, those pics should blow up pretty big to get a good look at them if you click on them...  I know a lot of people just look at the thumbnails.  Anyway, I'm having a blast, and look forward to any comments, criticism, or advice anyone has to share... :stoned:
