long term casing storage
    #4529372 - 08/13/05 08:26 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have 3 fruiting chambers 24" by 16" made from rubbermaid totes


and I have three loaves each inside. I can incubate the covered loaves till myc. breaks the surface, patch, cold shock, uncover and then fruit, but I have just as many if not more casings waiting for the same treatment. Is there a good way to slow the growth of those in waiting until they get their turn? Keeping them cool should slow the growth but at what temp would be optimal? (b+ rye spawned to 50/50 peat verm.) many thanks.

>>>>>>>b+ rye spawned to 50/50 peat verm<<<<<<<<

Are you saying you spawned B+ colonized rye into a 50/50 CASING MIX?

you can keep them covered tight and put them in the fridge for some time. i have put cakes in the fridge for 2 months and still had good luck colonizing with them.
good luck
peace

Yes. Rye spawn cased in 50/50 vermiculite and peat casing mix.
The fridge is not too cold? I will just have to experiment with a casing in the bar fridge downstairs. Thanks!

no the fridge is not too cold, it will stall the mycs growth as long as you don't freeze it.
spawning is when you add it to a bulk substrate.
casing is actually just the layer that you add on top of the substrate to help aid in moisture retention of the substrate.
so you cased your substrate (rye) with the 50/50 tek.

peace
