Dunking Question
    #4316143 - 06/20/05 06:09 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Ok I loosened up the cake in the jar and poured water in ...do i have to put something inbetween the cake and the lid to hold it down or is the little bevel the ball jar cover has enough to keep it under the water....do i need to leave the filter cover on while dunking? I have got varying opinions but should i leave the dunk at room temp or refrig?
Road kill said he refrig's cubensis and he seems very reputable on here its just while searching i have seen many posts say'n dunking delays pinning in cubensis and is not required.....

also if i dunk at room temp of say 70 will i have to get it to 60 to fruit? I have been incubating at 82....would it make sense to dunk in the incubator at 82 so when i remove i can leave at room temp of 70 to trigger fruiting?

Yes, Roadkill has it right on IMHO.  as always...

Here's what I do.  Remove the Vermiculite layer on top of the colonized cake, fill with water till its floating to the top of the jar, I use a small cork to put between the lid and the cake to hold it down in the water.  I'm sure you could use anything that is somewhat sterile.  Screw the lid on.  I use one without holes and no filter.  Not needed for this.  Then put in the fridgerator for the 12 or even better 24 hour soak.  Then Roll in VERM.

I don't put them in the fridge after all of the other flushes, only when I birth the cake.  This tells the cake that you are coming out of colonizing stage and to start fruiting.  I think, however, that this may have been what you read that can delay pinning.  I also would say you should either dunk in the fridge, or in room temp.  (not your incubator)

It works for me, but then again I haven't done it without Shock/Dunk/Roll, but others have and say that it's a must.

Good luck with it... :thumbup:

Tape em. Should be ok though. I just do it to keep any contaminates from going in the holes. You could also put a coffee filter rubber banded over the top, or put them in a clean container.
