rolling tek
    #3847968 - 02/28/05 07:11 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i read quite a few people on here recommend a first timer to dunk and roll their cakes after complete colonization. where can i find a tek that details this information and how to do it? for instance, what mixture should you roll it in, etc.

Dunk the cake in water, let it sit there and rehydrate overnight. Roll your cake in sterilized vermiculite after you take it out of the water. Plop it in your fruiting chamber.

a fresh bag of verm won't need to be sterilized in my experience, but a good way i read to dunk your cakes is to put them back in a clean jar and just fill the jar up w/ water, GL

You don't absolutely have to sterilize your vermiculite before casing, but I would suggest it. Some people prefer to put it in the microwave for 5-10 minutes instead. Roadkill (60/40 coco coir/vermiculite) has a tek on here that outlines this.

yeah it doesn't need it, i was just referring to a newly opened bag, if its not the first time you'll be using it, moisten it and nuke it for 10 min.

do you do the dunk and roll after each flush? what exactly is the purpose of the roll? does it give the outer layer a textured surface to pin to? in your personal experiments, what did you guys find to be the best medium to roll it in?

Rolling it helps provide a microclimate around the cake much like a casing does. It provides humidity and a source of water for the pins to develop.

I like to take all of my cakes out of there jars and put them in a large bucket. I use a mop bucket. Make sure to clean it out before you use it!!

Yes, you can re dunk and roll after each flush. I usually just dunk again as there is still plenty of verm on the cake but its just personal preference.

Fill the bucket with 5-10% h202 and the rest with water, dump all your cakes in, place something clean and heavy on top of them as the cakes will want to float. Then cover with syran wrap or aluminum foil and place the entire thing in the fridge for 24 hours.

After that roll them in dry vermiculite - I actualy use damp, but dry sticks better, then stick them in your fruiting chamber. If you use dry verm remember to mist the hell out of them after you put them in the fruiting chamber so the verm has water in it.

In about 3-4 days the mycelium should be vigorusly growing through the verm. At about 5-8 days pins will start to form.
