first time casing, suggestions?
    #673744 - 06/11/02 08:27 PM (16 years, 3 months ago)

My friend has 7 fully colonized jars which he says he wants to case. He has never done this before, and wonders what kind of casing you good folk at the shroomery would suggest for his first attempt. He has done quite a bit of reading up on casings already, and will certainly do more in the days to come, but since you all seem like such a helpful lot, any bit of wisdom you could kick down directly would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, and lates.

Well assuming you have pf style jars you will need something along the lines of the 50/50 or 50/50+ casing tek.

Personally I would recommend using the 50/50 casing tek but using the mushmush or lilshop of spores casing soil instead of the 50/50+. I've found that oyster shells and high vermiculite ratio are very unforgiving for begineers.

You'll defently want to try hongus casing tek. for your first attempt.
