Mini Casing??
    #3889021 - 03/08/05 08:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have 12 1/4 pint BRF/Verm jars. They are a few days a way from full colonization and two were cold shocked today to onset pinning and will be invitro style. They are both bplus strain cubensis. Another six jars, 3 bplus and 3 gulf coast, are going to be fruited in a mini terrarium.

I don't want to risk my whole batch on casings because i fear possible contamination and I'm more than pleased with a few mushrooms, a spore sprint, and a couple nice trips.

I want to case 4 bplus jars in a mini style casing. I was wondering if anyone had ever done mini casings before and had some advice. I'm planning on doing a taller, less wide casing. Looking for nice big healthy shrooms. Would something 8 inch by 8 inch width and length wise and maybe 8 or 10 inches tall work?? That's kind of what I'm envisioning. Or would a regular style flatter EZ foil casing be more practical for me?? This is my FIRST ATTEMPT to cultivate mushrooms, so you can understand the risk factor. Or would it be smarter to use the cakes to colonize a say 1 quart jar?? I'm open to any opinions on what could be my best bet as far as yield/and safety go. Thanks for your opinions.

Get a cool whip bowl, PC it for 10 or 15 minutes at 10-15 psi if you wanna pc it. And use one or two cakes in it. case it with 60/40 verm/coir. See how that goes. :wink:

hmmm. That seems like a pretty good idea. Have you tried it your self??

I think imma try it. Or something extremely similar. This time around is a lot about learning, next time is going to be semi-bulk, and then hopefully this summer I'm going cRaZY with the outdoors.

I havent tried it. But my friend did that with rye not brf/verm and he only used 1 half pint cake. But that was rye, so I would think you should use a little more then 1 half pint if it is only brf/verm. But he actually had a nice little flush. Nothing big like people on here but he had 47 wet and about 4.5 dry from one flush. It was a nice even pin set too i hear.
