If you made a casing already, then case it. You pretty much answered your own question on this one.

whenever you have a choice between the two...always case...you'll get a much better yield.

As long as im sterile everything should work right ? I only have 3 jars and i hear casing could be difficult. DO i have to wait a couple days for it to colonize on the inside ?

You made a casing, but you don't know how to case? :confused: Read up on casing in the FAQ.

Well, I personally never grew actives on cakes. I started off doing bulk subs and casings. I would suggest growing from cakes if it is your first time because it helps you to see how the whole process works. And if they do get contamed, it allows you to see up close what some contams look like, so you can ID them in the future.

If you are going to try a casing, it isn't all that difficult, but you will need to read up on how long to incubate after casing etc. That info is all found in the casing faqs.

No matter what I say and no matter what I write here.

I'm sick of always looking at this page with a blank stare.
