Wait until the caps flatten out a bit (horizontal), they'll gain a bit of mass as opposed to picking immediately after the veil breaks. Just my .02, it's what I like to do.

veils dont break too soon. they break exactly when they need to. every fruit is different and it decides the proper time to sporolate.

its really up to you when you want to pick the mushroom. some people say mushrooms start to loose potency after the veil breaks and the cap expands. i havent ran proper tests, but i havent expirienced any potency loss.

keep in mind that shortly after the veil breaks and the cap opens the mushroom is going to sporulate and there will be spores everywhere. which will make your fruiting chamber soft of messy.

and yes the mushroom will get a little bigger but a 2 inch mushrooms with the veil breaking will not get that much bigger. i advise you to let in grow for a couple more hours then pick it.
