lol Road hahhahaaa
well i just use the surgical gloves and thats after wiping my ass lol
hell i ve only did the myco bags and i still wear gloves and stuff.. i did start a casing from one of them using Joshuas 101 deal though.. i m sure i probably fucked it up which is why i used bags in the beginning LOL... but i may have gotten lucky.. i did lysol the fuck out of the work area and used a lot of alchol and tried to be clean as possible..but it is hard to say to the rest of the family excuse me while i steralize the house and dont walk into room A for now LOL at least thats whay my friend told me
P.S. Roadkill you are one of the people "like" the 4 or 5 i mentioned lol.. i ve saw some good pics from you as well which is why I mentioned you in my post to Mcman.. seems to me once you and I realized that neither one took shit and takin a asswhippin wasnt one of our concerns we ve gotten along fine. I appreciate your advice and help here also.

Like I said in my first post, "Keep in mind that this is a general outline of one procedure to produce a casing. I encourage modifications and use of ingenuity to improve this procedure."

There are many ways to make a casing. I have never used a baggie previous to this thread. I thought the baggie would provide a nice clean environment for the handling of cakes. Of course you can use clean hands.

Someone mentioned the unnecessity of cleanliness/sterility in handling cakes since they are colonised. If you get foreign spores on your cake they are not liable to germinate, true. However as soon as these spores contact uncolonised substrates, be it more nutritive substrate or a casing layer, they may germinate. I myself have probems w/ contams. I am just trying to help others to avoid those same problems.

I'm sorry that I did not maintain this thread and answer ?'s therein, I will be sure to do so from this point forward.

Joshua: Can you give the coir/verm/lime ratios? Also, isn't there a specific type of lime to use and another to avoid at all costs? Thanks for a great tutorial!

Anymore I just eyeball the mix. I use aproximately this ratio of verm/coir/shell:9:9:2. The only ingredient that might be of concern as far as ratio is the shell, you probably wouldn't want to have more than %15 of shell in your mix. The verm and coir can be mixed at any ratio, I prefer equal parts of verm and coir. Others use all coir. Use hydrated lime, I would use half as much lime as shell.

Joshua, you don't have to break cakes up, or slice them right? Can't you just put them straight in the case, and crumble another cake to fill in the cracks? Wouldn't doing this result in having bigger shrooms/flushes?

Most indoor unfiltered air has somewhere around 2000 microscopic particulates in every cubic foot, the human eye cannot even see. Some of those particulates are contam spores.

IMHO, The advantage of using a ziplock to crumble a cake in, is straight forward.

Less exposure to unfiltered open air.  :wink:

I actually just did the method you describe. I think the advantage to breaking the cakes up is to allow better moisture penetration and aeriation....I don't really know though. I do know that it is much more even when pouring out a couple crubled cakes than laying the two cakes down.

Your method is the exact type of modifications that are important to try.

Search for "Snake eye" in the Pictures/grow log forum for details on the type of casing you just explained.

Great job on that tutorial guys! Some things that you could possible add to make it easier for the newbies: Mixing of the casing layer, ratios used in the casing layer and how you went about sterlizing the casing layer. I know all this information is availibal in the FAQs but it would be nice to show the pictures to give people ideas.

Back in the day when I experimented with my first casing, the actual caing layer was the hardest part for me.
