Rehydrating BRF cakes?
    #384456 - 09/03/01 06:39 AM (16 years, 9 months ago)

If mycelial growth halts in a BRF/vermiculite cake due to lack of moisture, if I inject it with more water, will the colonisation continue?

Many thanks,
IudexK

An aquantince of mine injected some sterile(boiled then cooled) water into a couple of cakes he had that had halted growth in the jar due to drying. They seemed to fair well though a small portion of the top was left uncolonized and cut out. It's a risky thing to do though keep that in mind. If your cakes are colonized a good portion I'd just cut out the uncolonized areas and case if I were you.

there used to be a dunk tek, where you dunk the cake for a while to rehydrate it...but i wouldnt try it with a partially colonized cake.
my advise is to add more water to your sub recipe

not sure how a cake got dried out if it was still in the jar to colonize. that's the reason for using a jar, the ideal selfcontroling microenvironment inside.

assuming that your cake is no longer invitro, then i suggest cutting away uncolonized portions, smooshing the remainders together and applying a moist casing

if the cake is still invitro, spray the top with mild H2O2 solution, a little each day until you start to see just a hint of moisture developing in some areas of the jar
