I have 8 full pint cakes that are almost fully colonized. Now, ofcorse I'm going to case them, but I have a few questions. First, which is better...Cold shocking or dunking? or can I do both? Also, does a blue light really help that much? Any results welcome. Thanks.

you can do both the shock and dunk, shocking isnt necisary and its questionable as
to whether its even helpful, as for light, most fluorescent bulbs are ideal
because they provide the blue portion of the spectrum you need without generating
too much heat

From what I understand cold shocking is most helpful when attempting to initiate pinning. As for dunking I have no experience.

supposedly the cakes do not need that dramatic of a climate change to initiate pinning, and i've read here that it can possibly hinder the shroom growth....it was mentioned to me putting them in the fridge slows down the growth of any bacteria...the first and foremost reason for throwin'em in the fridge......anyone wanna comment on those comments?

Cold shocking helps me as opposed to not cold shocking. If I birth and cold shock I start getting pins within 3 or 4 days every time.

If I do not cold shock, sometimes it is up to 2 weeks before pins.
