Whats the best way to crumble cakes for casings?
    #3903995 - 03/11/05 06:34 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I have tried twice at crumbling inside a ziploc, but the casings never took off. I don't really know why.

I dropped the cakes directly into the baggy and crumbled it from the outside into sections about the size of a ping pong ball.

This seemingly killed the mycelium both times or got it to a point it could not recover.

Is it possible that I crumbled or smashed the cake too much? What else could be a source of this problem?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Possibly too much water in my casing layer, I will experiment some more. Just wanted some more insight so I wouldn't waste any cakes. I don't think temp is an issue.

Thanks!

I crumble my cakes as much as I can into tiny, tiny pieces. Then I case in just plain verm and leave in the dark temps are 25C. They are left like this for 5 days then, I see some growth I then patch and when I see more growth, I fruit/show it the light. And about 5 days later I see the shrooms this has never failed.

So to you question it doesn't matter how mush you crumble your cakes.

What do you do after the point of crumbling your cakes? Some more info would help. Then I/we maybe able to help you with your problem.

The end result is this
