Joshua's Casing Tek ?'s
    #4204830 - 05/21/05 11:05 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i am wanting to use Joshua's casing tek with a few jars. http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/565456/an/0/page/0 I have a few questions though.

In his casing pictorial he doesn't mention whether he did a dunk and cold shock before he broke the cakes up for the casing. Should i Dunk my jars and stick in the fridge before i do the tek?

I have pans that look the same as his, 8x3 3/4x2 3/8" loaf pans. In his tek it looks like he only uses one cake, wouldn't 2 be better?

I have some mini loaf pans also, 5 7/16x3 1/2x2" that seem to be more suited to single cake casings.

so what i need to know is, dunk before casing and how many cakes per pan in the sizes i mentioned?

thanks in advance,
walking shark

the more cakes that you put in...the better!~

more substrate = larger fruits and yeilds.

It doesn't hurt to dunk your cakes, even before casing. I don't know if you want to cold shock right after casing. Cube's don't really require cold shocking. A 10 degree temp. drop from incubating temp. to fruiting temp. should be enough. Use how ever many cakes it takes to give you at least a 2" substrate depth. You might want to consider spawning those cakes to some horse poo. You also might want to watch using those aluminum foil pans. I understand that mycelium waste can eat through them. Good Luck.

i am talking about doing the dunk cold shock in the jar in the fridge before the crumble and case.

i have been hounding the g/f for a while to let me go the horse poo route. But she isn't too keen on it, she doesn't mind me growing shrooms but she isn't very willing to let me go bulk quite yet.  :confused:

i have found that it takes quite a few casing runs to even begin to eat through the pans, even with holes poked in the bottom for drainage. it does happen though.

Yes, I dunk in the fridge, doesn't seem to hurt. Shame your GF wouldn't let you do the poo. It really doesn't smell. I have about 50 pounds in a rubbermaid at the foot of my bed. It's like a new hope chest, I hope my husband fills it up the rest of the way for me,lol.
