I have never dunked my casings/cakes, but a few raccoons I know do and have lot's of success with the idea. I would say its personally up to you. If your cakes are a little dry it would probably be a good idea, but I have never had a problem getting nice flushes and I never dunk.

DUNK and cold shock to initiate pinning. Put them in ur fridge for 24 hours. It works great on pf cakes. Make sure u use sterilize ur water first. You'll never really know unless you try.

yes dunk, no cold shock for p. cubensis. this will stall the myc's growth and delay pinning. you can sterilize the water for the dunk if you want but it isn't totally necessary.

do the dunk, this will rehydrate your cakes before you fruit them. what do the mushies really love, hmmm.....

:peace:

Yes, dunk your cakes before you case them. It helps rehydrate the sub, and will increase your yield.

No, do not cold shock them, that does NOT initiate pinning, it only slows down pinning by 3-5 days for cubies. COLD SHOCKING=Gourmet ONLY.

During the incubation stage, your PF jars use a lot of the original water. Water is an essential element to the whole growth process and a lack thereof has negative affects on the number of flushes and the quality of each flush. I would say definately dunk your cakes. Around 12 hours in distilled water seems to work great. And for those of you who don't case, you should dunk your cake between flushes.

Dunking is well worth it, it's a proven tek! As far as cold dunking it will not stall growth for more than a day or two at most. It doesn't help pinning much especially if rolling and double ending.

right after you dunk your cake and you are about to put it in the casing do you still split it in half or put them in the casing as it was when it came out of the jar? I dont want to take any chances with contams thats why I'm asking :laugh:

is rehydrating yourself really worth it after a mile run?

They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every

You can also get an ultrasonic humidifier. IMHO it's safer than dunking for contam issues. Plus it works real well, regardless of major (or minor) contam issues. It's not appropriate for initial casings or cakes (too wet). Let it run a full day. Cold shocking works for strains that originate from colder areas, like ones from high altitudes. It's contraindicated for totally tropical cubes. You'll have to do your research on that. Risks due to casing are about the same whether you split them in half or not, so that's another decision you have to make. Pasteurize your casing material and you ought to be okay. If you use the humidifier you can make your casing more dry.

ultrasonic humidifiers are great for maintaining humidity inside a growing chamber, but do not replace dunking. The use of a ultrasonic humidier (or any other humidification method ie. perlite) should compliment dunking, not replace it.
