Question about rolling
    #4581623 - 08/25/05 11:04 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hi everyone. I've been reading around here a lot and I have just inoculated my first 4 jars of BRF and vermiculite. Hopefully someone can answer my question about rolling the cake.

Why do you only roll the cake in verm, rather than verm and BRF? It doesn't seem to make sense to me why you wouldn't try to keep your ratio of verm to BRF the same when rolling it.

Thanx in advance

because after birthing the cakes you dunk in water, with something on top of the cake to keep it from floating, and I put in the frig for 18-24 hours, then roll in verm to keep the moisture in, if you followed the tek correct then you allready have enought BRF.

Thanx for the quick reply.

I do understand that the purpose of the verm is to retain moisture after dunking. Has anyone ever rolled with verm and BRF? I can't see how it would hurt anything.

The verm isn't a nutrient. BRF is a nutrient.

I believe the idea is that if you used a nutrient the mycelia would try to colonize it. Which would put you back to the incubation chamber when you are actually trying to get to the fruiting chamber.

This is what I have come to understand anyway...
