Bunk casing from bunk cakes?
    #4042691 - 04/11/05 09:52 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

my bro and I injected these jars (2:1:1 Verm:RYE FLOUR:water) with colonizing myc that was suspended into water. The jars took over a MONTH to colonize at ~80F and when they were done, were the ugliest looking cakes I've ever seen. Looked like they had a bad haircut or something, and still had patches of substrate showing. I knew that they weren't going to colonize anymore, and they were pretty much done so I cased them with 60/40 and hydrated lime (1tsp lime per 2cups of casing mix)

It's been in the incubator for 5 days now, and not a single speck of myc has even popped up. A similar casing has been taking over two weeks back and forth from incubator to FC and has done almost nothing.

Could the extensive colonization times and the crappy rye flour have ruined this casing? Should I just chuck it? I've got a buttload of BRF cakes that have been colonizing like a dream that will be ready in a few days, so I'm not worried about having to start from scratch, and I really don't want to waste room in my FC...

It's the rye flour substrate. Just go with the BRF jars you have.
