Weird/experimental cake idea
    #4491028 - 08/03/05 07:29 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Ok. I was sitting drinking my favorite soda, Sunkist and I was holding the bottle cap and thought to myself: "Man, I'd make summore jars if I had some more time...I got vacation coming up." So I thought about the bottle caps for some reason and thought about mini-cakes. What if you were to take a buttload of bottle cakes and load them all with your favorite substrate and you could boil/pc them by the 50s or 100s depending on your pot size and your bottle cap quantity. All you'd have to do is just put a plate or the such over them to keep them from floating up and viola, sterilized bottle caps. You could then inoculate with a smaller amount then a regular pf cake, and incubate them. With such a small containing area, it'd take what..1-3 days to completely colonize? Then you could crack them all out and grind them in a food processor and then you'd have a fully colonized casing layer in 1-3 days instead of 2 weeks to a month. Sure it'd be time-consuming to find the caps and then to inoculate each one, but think of the hours you'd save on the day differences. Really I'm just brainstorming and I'd like any positive/negative comments to be replied so I can use some creative critcism.
Shroom on,  :mushroom2:

how would you cover them to keep them sterile?

You could use foil and then double wrap the top of them with a rubber band as a lid and if you were to boil them and do it properly, you might not have a much of a problem considering there is a much smaller time frame between a jar and the cap idea and that you'll have them massed produced so if 10 or 11 get contammed, that's not even a 1/3rd of the whole batch. Don't ask me where you'd get the caps...maybe ebay, but I think it's possible.

And you could possible saranwrap the crap out of it to keep out baddies and also possible raise the temp a tad during incubation.

as crazy as your idea seems it sounds somewhat smart why not try it out and see what happens.

Well if it works, I officially copywrite them as Pryme Cupcakes instead of pf cakes :laugh: But in all seriousness, I work for a landscaping company and we work out in the sun all day so we throw back a few sodas a day. We have a trashpile at the shop maybe a half a story high and wide all around and there is no telling how many caps. If I seriously went through a de-capped everything, it'd prolly come out to about 500 easy. So I'm gonna start collecting them and test a few. I just like the idea of being able to do a massive batch in a short span spread out instead of a big batch in a long time period packed in a few big jars. Keep the advice coming guys :smile:

You think I'd have tiny shrooms? I'm not fruiting each (cup)cake seperately; I'm gonna food process alot of them at once and make a casing layer in a short period of time.

-Lemon, do you think I could just put alot of caps in a box and then put a layer of tyvek over them and then use the box to incubate?

put a layer actually on the cap and then you caould put some sort of hard plastic inbetween the layers of cupcakes.

thats what i thought too pris, but he is talking about mixing all those little ones up into a casing.
i guess it could work, but you say boil them, won't the substrate become saturated unless you some how seal them tight. maybe you could vacuum seal them in large batches and then boil them up.
from multispore it would still take more than 1-3 days for colonization. lc's who knows maybe a couple of days.
good luck
peace

Wow what a fucking waste of time. Check out my grain link in my signature and forget that hassle.

smaller container doesnt mean faster colonization. Just use more spores / spawn when innoculating :]

Im all for new experients tho, but maybe try 5-10 of them, before digging through trash for 500

how does mini muffin pans sound instead of pop lis. u could put the mini muffin pan held up by the edges of larger square pan with water boiling under and something covering the whole thing to steam it?

now that I read it it sounds kind of retarded.
please don't criticize too heavily
