1st casing ??'s
    #4574854 - 08/24/05 03:00 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hi,
Ok so I have had my 1st casing in the FC for about a week now. I fan 2-3 times a day and have an air stone/pump in a soda bottle filled with water. The room temp is 74-77 degrees. I guess I'm anxious to get the pinning underway. How long does it normally take for pinning to occur? Or should I try a cold shock in the fridge?

Thanks for your indulgence,

Just be patient, I have seen pins come many-o'-time after 20 days. As long as everything done pre-hand is good that is.

Jars are quicker but potency can be lacking, casing on hpoo is slower but potency is greater. I'll wait. This pint jar of WBS took the better part of 4 months to fully colonize so I should have figured the pinning time will be slow too. At least no contams at this point (knock on wood).

That is crazy alright! I've has Ps. cyans take close to 60 days to full colonization and thats a slow colonizer. I bet those were awful dry. Hope ya cased that casing and followed my pinning strategy. :smile:

Don't cold shock them. That's for gourmet mushrooms, and will actually slow pinning.
