Um...drip shields are usually for fruting chambers where high humidity levels exist. Yes, they are important though. Yes, you can do without it. If you have a setup that "rains" on your goomers, a) your casing will get too moist, which will most likely lead to b)some kind of contam or rot, or c)fluffy mycelium that "reaches" up and forms no hyphal [sic?] knots. You'll see what I mean if and when it happens to you.

As far as your planned setup, unless you are working in very sterile conditions, I would suggest NOT to case one huge tote. If you get a contam in there, say bye bye to your huge casing. I would suggest using several smaller containers within the tote to lessen the chance of a mold ruining your day.

Why do you want to use heated water to incubate for your spawn run? That is a possibility, but it may be a whole hell of a lot easier to just use a heating pad with a thermostat underneath your box.

just an idea

good luck
