My First Casing Setup - Look okay?
    #4378430 - 07/07/05 03:03 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

For my third grow I'm going to do kind of a bulk casing setup. =0)

Ingredients:





^--- 6 of these - 3 for each tub.  (They fit perfectly in these tubs, no unused space, but not too tight.)
( 12? x 10? x 3? )






^------ 24 pint Jars total. (Quart jars won't fit in PC :undecided: )
I might need to get more of these...looks like I underestimated.



Going to have 6 wbs casings total, with a 50/50+ casing layer.  The wbs depth will be about 2 inches and the casing depth will be about 1/2 inch.  Each casing tray is 12? x 10? x 3?  These will be housed in a partially automated setup.  I'm not so sure that that pump will provide enough air exchange, so the tubs will probably have to be fanned every once in a while.

I will be using a variety of strains that will probably include Texas, EQ, GT, B+, and PES Hawaiian.

The WBS is soaking right now, going to simmer and PC tomorrow.
If I keep temps and humidity at proper levels, what kind of yield can I expect from a flush of these 6 casings?  Does this setup look alright?

Thanks =0)

Sure, I know exactly what kind of yeild your gonna get out of there. I mean you didnt provide how much substrate the container will hold, or the size of the container...plus I have no idea what sort of conditions, water or strain your going to be providing....but hell I'm psychic. Oh wait, no I'm not :frown:

Everything in the setup looks ok though if the casing containers all fit..of course those are going to be a tight fit with 3 per probably and probably block the air flow and humidity flow from under the casings....but it depends on the size of both containers.

That looks like a great setup.  :thumbup:

What are you using with the air pump?  Bubble wands or Glass of Water?  If Bubble wands, you need some Perilite or Geolite/Hydroton


Have you considered just doing the Single/Double Tub TEK?

Also, if that's your PC'er, It's going to take a while to do multiple PC runs because that looks like a pretty small one.  Trust me, I know from using a 6Qt that it won't hold nearly enough when doing grains, but you probably know that.

AS for the Yield, good luck getting an answer on that one.  Too many variables.

Good Luck :thumbup:

I'm just using air stones that will be placed in the center of the tub.  Do I need to use perlite with these?  I was under the assumption that the casings would provide adequate humidity.

Didn't know there was such a TEK.  I'll look into it.

Yeah it is a pretty small PC. :undecided: I'm going to end up doing several batches.

Darn.  Well, if I keep these things growing at optimal conditions, can I maybe get a yield in the 1-2 ounce dry range?  I'm kind of just looking for a rough estimate here...I've never dealt with casings before.

You're a damn smartass scatmanrav. Keep up the work.
Hey Hippie. I'm liking ur setup. I have some WBS jars ready but cant figure what to do with them. Are those aluminum dillies going to be deep enough?

I hope they will be deep enough. I might end up buying some deeper ones so I can have a deeper substrate.

How much WBS are you gonna be using? I mean those are gonna take at least 6 pints (that looks like the size jars you got, you shouldve gotten quarts for whole grains) per container, though I'd do more like 10-12 per pan...you'll need to fill up the pans with some quarts of stuff to see how much it takes to make the substrate 2 inches thick...if you can get 2 inches thick, per quart (2 pints) you could expect 10-20 grams...maybe more, maybe less. So if you case all 24 pints filled with WBS, in however many containers it takes to get them 2 inches thick, that would be like a dozen quarts, so somewhere around 120-240 grams could be expected (dry).

Not sure exactly how much wbs I will use.  Yeah, those are pint jars and I almost definitely underestimated.  I will probably have to get a couple dozen more jars.  I also might up container size so I can get a deeper substrate.

:shocked: Wow, that would be fucking awesome.

i have the exact same tub and pans to be used for my first grow...3 pans do seem to fill in a tub just perfectly. im gonna to try a layer of perlite under the casing pans tho, and im using BRF with 50/50 for my casing. i wrapped my tub in duct tape and am going to put piece of plexiglass in the middle of the lid, to hopefully get my shrooms to grow upward and not sideways... i still have some supplies to wait on tho  :frown:

btw, since you've got a little experience under your belt, and we both using same size pan, how many 1/2 pint BRF cakes do you think i should crumble into each pan..?
