quick casing question
    #4004078 - 04/02/05 08:46 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

ok here's the deal. i have 6 cakes that were placed in the friuting chamber about 10 days ago. they are showing very little signs of growth, just a few knots here and there. i have decided to case them, so do i need to wait for their first flush or can i crumble and case them after they are this far along.

Did you dunk them initially? If you're going to case them, just case 'em whole. Waiting for the substrate to recover from crumbling this late in the game will just delay things further. Casing whole works wonders.

You sure can. The less you batter and beat around your culture, the better results you'll see. Case those puppies whole like this:

No problem :smile:

If you want to have some fun in the future and don't feel like crumbling for casings, experiment around with casing whole--awesome results.

yes you can cover air tight but you want to give it a couple of air exchanges every day
