Misting a casing
    #4573634 - 08/24/05 02:39 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Do I spray the casing directly? and how do I know if my casing is moist enough without touching it?

Spray about 2-3 feet away from the casing. If the casing is pulling away from the sides of the container then it's too dry. If you see the casing layer lighten in color it's too dry too. I cased with straight verm and I try to keep it dark, but not shiny.

Spray it with an adjustable nozzle sprayer set to the finest mist possible. Wait until you first start to see it glisten and stop. It should then have the right amount of moisture.

Read my pinning strategy :wink: Also you most definitely want your casing to "glisten"!! Right on FooMan!
