I think I birthed too early

OK, it seems that I got a little anxious and ended up birthing a cake that probably shouldn't have been.

The entire cake was colonized with myc for about two days with the exception of a spot about the size of a nickle on the bottom. A day later it was covered in myc and I let the jar sit for another three days, dunked, rolled, then placed in a fruiting chamber.

OK, so question number one is, should I wait for the the cake to start pinning invitro before dunking, rolling, then birthing?

Also, will a jar whose center is not completely colonized still pin?

And, will the cake still continue to colonize while in the fruiting chamber?

if it was just a 1/2 pint jar and you waited 3 days after the whole outside was colonized, then i would say it was probably fully colonized.

Give it some time, im sure you'll see fruits. How many days has it been in the fruiting chamber?

Just put it in there today.

I have read a lot of PF teks and they all recommend allowing the cakes to pin before birthing?

Will a cake pin when it's ready or do you have to initiate it with light?

Dont wait before birthing. The cake will pin best when givin the three triggers, 10 degree temp drop, light, and FRESH AIR. Cant get that last one still in the jar so you'll end up waiting longer for pins if you wait to birth.
