2-3 wks is sufficient for the natural anti-fungals to die down. if you can keep them somehwre clean during this period the better. don't soak until your ready for your first fruiting. the log has pretty much max moisture whn freshly felled. during incubation you can just dead stack the logs but use burlap or something or the mycelium will knit the logs together and the bark will rip off when you unstack them. i incubate mine in a garage just standing on end and crowded together ( they need to be occasionally rotated to keep even moisture distribution. as for further stacking i just lean mine with one end on the ground and the other in the air. just space them appropriately according to relative humidity. if it's the rainy season keep them spaced to prevent molds and if it is hot/dry, space them closely to provide shade and keep moisture in. if it is really windy then lean the logs closer to the ground. I highly recommend a small book titled "Growing Shiitake Commercially" It covers much of this material with pictures and is a quick read.

there are lots of ways to do it. i'm just saying that if your going to dead stack then you have to insure that the logs are'nt all snuggled up together as the mycelium will knit them together. you can make layers where each layer has burlap draped over it. i am partial to my method, tho. i can fit many logs into not so much space.
