Whats the longest amount of time you can leave your cakes in the fridge while being soaked in water? Afoaf has left his cakes in there for about 2 days.

I hear, about 48 hours...even that can cause problems. I've soaked rye/verm (not powdered) cakes for 6 days before birthing them, I was told this is harder to do with PF Cakes...

12 hours before birthing and 24 between flushing dont make it difficult and i recommend rolling to any commits welcomed

See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man

Close, 24 on birthing and 12 between flushes will give you much better results :wink: I agree with sludge KISS is always the best approach. GL

Reasoning behind it...though later in its life the cake gets drier so you want to dunk longer, but contamination risk increases so shorter is better later in life. Same, especially if you dunk casings.
