Is it ok to mist the actual cakes before any pins show up ?
    #4091944 - 04/24/05 05:06 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Is it ok to mist the actual cakes before any pins show up ?

On mine I dunked and rolled 6 of the 8 cakes and on the 6 rolled the verm visually looks kinda dry...they have only been in the birthing chamber 2-5 days....no pins yet. Would it be ok to mist the actual cakes before pinning or will this mess them up.

Here's a sample...does this look dry to you ??



Thanks !

I used to mist cakes according to how dry they seemed...if your humidity is really high and you dunked then it probably isnt needed though.
From what i can see in the pic it looks fine.

Thanks midway,
What is the average time for pinning ? I realize it can vary a lot according to setup, but what is about average ?

Also, if your only getting 87% - 90% humidity doing cakes, will you ever get pinning ?

Pinning time depends a lot on the temperature. Mine would usually pin in 6 or 7 days after birthing in the low to mid 70s, and that was after a fridge dunk. keep your air exchange high.

Ok...I'm fanning 2-3 times a day, and temperature is between 68 and 75 degrees. The picture above is on day 5 in the chamber.

I guess i'm just a little over anxious !

I would say mist untill you dont need to mist any more! I misted daily untill i saw very very small little pins. I got huge first flushes. I dunked after my first flush, and now have a great looking pin set on my cakes three days later!!!! I did mist once inbetween, but these damn cambodians keep going and going!

Misting cakes directly causing aborts may not be proven for certain, but the experience of many (mine included) have shown it to cause them...

Try to get more like 6-8 air exchanges daily.
