Stalled casing, need advice*PIC
    #3939150 - 03/19/05 10:21 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)



This is a Cambo casing made out of straw 85%, horse poo 15% spawned with cambo  BRF cakes...thw sraw was not very well chopped, and the incubation temp was 28 Celcious.

The last 4-5 days (10 total) the temp dropped by 5 Celcious

The mycelium seems kind of flat on the top like the kind found in jars with prollonged incubation periods.There are uncolonized parts of straw here and there...

Should i remove the uncolonized straw and case? Or wait a little longer?  :confused:

Thanx for your input

Try to wait it out if you can. Straw tends to stall like that especially when you are working with longer pieces. Last two straw bins I ran pulled the exact same thing on me. They never made it. Suffice to say, I don't mess with straw anymore.

Try 100% straight manure next time if it's available to you, or cut it w/ much finer cut straw.

Just case it, itll finish up fine. Next time, try and put alot of extra spawn on the top, and dont mix it down into the substrate.

Hey good point, some extra spawn on the top would be a good idea,

Diver: yeah, straw definitely needs to be chopped to little pieces with a blender or something...next time...

thanx guys! :thumbup:
