How many cakes will your fruiting chamber hold?
    #3973473 - 03/26/05 07:49 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Im trying to find a fruiting chamber that will hold the maximum number of cakes. What are some of your set-ups for large fruiting containers? can they be opaque and use some light source inside? My transparent container will only really hold about 8 cakes and i just wanted to know if anyone else here wants to share their super sweet cake setup. Should i just have a lot of different fruiting chambers and then stack em or what. Im sure some of you are just gonna tell to case.

I found a 189Liter gigantic clear tub at target. it is 42" L x 21.2" W x 16.8" H.
It will at least hold 14 pint cakes, maybe more. With such a huge chamber, do you guys think that i can reach proper humidity levels for cakes with just a 2" layer of perlite, or do you think perlite alone only works for smaller chambers.

not sure what 189 liters translates to but i was using (before martha) 2 55gal bins... prob. same thing actually

but i had a 20gal airpump fed into water and a .25" layer of damp perlite and humidity wasn't a prob.

oh and about stacking... i wouldn't recommend it unless you have an automated air exchange system... moving all those bins around multiple times a day would suck

Ammount of cakes you can do at once equals effort X resources X innovation.

I was there at the last concert in Chicago, Soldier Field actually. It was my first concert experience and the best time I have ever had. Little did I know it would be the last time I would see them play.

My PMP is a 45 gal sterlite container. Im going to roughly estimate that it could hold around 30 cakes and still leave them room to grow. I bought it from wally world for $15.
