I personally poke around to make sure it has colonized evenly up near the surface, if it has, I patch and birth after a misting. If not, I patch and give it another day and check again.

What I would do is take a fork (sterilized with lysol or alcohol) and gently lift some areas of your casing to see if the mycelium is approaching the surface uniformly. If there is a spot on top, and the rest isn't near done, patch the part exposed and let it incubate for another day or so. If it is almost at the surface, go ahead and throw it in your fruiting chamber in the glass container.

Depends bro, After I introduced my casing to the chamber, it took about 14 days to pin. Your milage may vary.
