Good LORD!! Another casing question!
    #4292421 - 06/13/05 07:26 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

OK, I'm at a funky stage with my casing.  I cased two BRF cakes about three weeks ago.  I used verm. on the bottom and Jiffy Mix on the top.  I colonized for a week and put it in my PmP with my cakes(I know, I know), but SOME people have said that they've had success that way. Some myc. started showing through and then stalled.  To make a long story short, my cakes started fruiting and I lost my mind. :eek:  After taking the casing out of the container it was in I realized that it was WAY too wet on the bottom. It's colonized well, but the verm. on the bottom was like white baby food or something...really mushy and wet.  The top layer was pulling away from the sides, so that tells me that the top was too dry and the bottom too wet.  I figured "what the Hell" and dunked it to try and start fresh. :crazy:  I've scraped away both bottom and top layers and can't figure out what to do with it now(no smart-ass suggestions, please!)  Do ya'll think that I should re-case it or just put some verm. on the lid of the container it was in and roll some on the sides and top and put it back into my PmP to fruit like a cake?  The only other tub I have to put it into if I re-case it is HUGE, so that presents a problem with going that route.

Hmm.. I would break it up and spawn it to H-poo, that's what I've been doing with all my casings lately. It sounds like you should just re-case it as is if you don't wanna go the poo route, and don't dump water on it, just mist it, until it gets pins..

Excessive pooling water can lead to contams =/

I'd recase it.

If you're afraid of water pooling, Put a Super ass thin layer (don't fully cover the bottom) of dry verm...But only if you're sure that water will pool up.

Otherwise the dry verm. will suck water out and you really don't want that.

Thanks for the info Kalix and Gnostic! I'll recase with no bottom layer and try it again-only drier. Thanks for spending all that time looking up all that stuff too Southpark! It'll really help me out right now, In the future I'll remember that. Should I title my posts "Stupid question" or put somewhere in the post "OK I've read so many things and am soo confused!", "I'm so stupid", or "maybe I'm just an idiot" like you do? LOL
