Yet Another Dunking Question...
    #687402 - 06/19/02 05:35 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

OK. First and second flushes of PF cakes done. Looking a little dry.
Dunking: three easy questions - 1) distilled water in sterilized container necessary? 2) how long must cakes be dunked? and 3) can more than one cake be dunked at the same time in the same container?

Some people are using a 12 hr. dunk in whole milk to put nutrients back in the cakes. You can put all the cakes in one container. I have done this on several occasions. After dunking in milk people usually folllow with a ten minute dunk in bleach:water mix at 1:100. I usually wash my container with antibacterial soap and rinse well, then wipe with alcohol to sterilize it before putting the milk and mushrooms in it. If you use milk instead of water you have to keep it refrigerated while dunking. Beware there is also a short recovery time when you put your cakes back in the grow chamber. Mine took a little over a week to recover.

Let's not confuse truth with reality.

1. No...tap water works.

2. 12 hours.

3. Yes. Make sure none are contaminated first though.

If you will it, it is no dream.

don't use whole milk, animal fat can trigger harmful mutations.
either use skim milk, or better yet, reconstituted nonfat dry milk, which can be mixed at increased strength for maximum effect.
but be warned--milk-dunked cakes must be rinsed well, and milk doesn't hold as much oxygen as water, so reduce dunk time to 12 hours or less, esp. on older cakes.
