Well from cakes you cant expect to get that much. unless you are a professional cake grower, like some of the members here, which DO get a lot of fruits.

Cakes produce smaller mushrooms, and less of them due to the fact the substrate is out in the open. The casing acts positively for many reasons to the substrate and helps it produce more fruits.

In an experiment which I did not too long ago, I had 2 cakes and a few casings. All the same strain, and I had 2 crumbled cakes in casings. I got at least 5 times more of the casing than i did off the cake. Casings make a way bigger surface area for fruiting, and have water resivoirs in the casing to keep the mushrooms able to suck up water throughout the process.

Go for the casings ... just make them a la oven tek, and be as careful as possible, and you wont have any probems!

I'm just on my first casing now...will post results. For cakes I've used the hydrapod and my first 4 cakes produced 11g dry. Now I've just got 2 cakes in there and the first flush gave me 5g dry. expecting about 10g total from these 2.

LilDon,
A FOAF just recieved thier 1st flush from their 3 Cambodian cakes. Total came out to 23 Grams Wet, which should be around 2 grams dry. Wasn't to much, but we were happy to get some! I would recomend dunking your cakes after a few post I have seen.

what can you expect ?

0 to 7 grams per cake.

And getting 7 or more grams per cake is a blessing from the Shroom God!

i tend to get about a quarter-pound dry from 24 jars [a single batch in my pc]. that's a pretty solid figure derived over hundreds of jars and several years.
that works out to just about 4.6 dry grams per cake.
of course, some do better or worse,
but it averages out .

i dunno i woulda have expected it to be more per cake because i see people with like 60 grams wet on one mush so if u get like 25 pins and no aborts (afoaf is growing tazz which are known to be big in size)i would figure mayb average weight of each shroom would b 30grams id figures 750 grams wet and then u figure that for every nine grams there is one 1 dry gram id think it would be 75 dry grams but i guess i was wrong!

(plus dont they flush alot like u can get 4 flushes off one cake)

afoaf has about 25 pins on cake mayb more because he hasnt recounted in a few days and none are aborting yet . . .i guess he will find out how much he gets 1st flush soon enough!
