Some ?'s - Need expert opinions please (pics)
    #692905 - 06/21/02 05:42 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

First of all, these pics look better than the cake does in person (Go Olympus! )

This is uncased compost started with rye grain spawn, the temp is now 70 and RH is 99%. It's been 14 days since spawning the compost. The strain is either Thai or Cambodian (not sure which)

Q's -
(1) Does it look healthy?
(2) I can see what look like hyphal knots (1mm round white spots) all over the place - Are they? (They don't show in the pics, they're too small.)
(3) When do you think I can expect to see pins?














The very dark spots are compost not fully colonized yet.
The VERY bright white spots are water droplets reflecting the flash.
I would appreciate experienced input please, and thank you!

Looks fine. You should case it.
Good luck.

I was thinking the same thing... I have some peat/lime, but I'm nervous about doing it. Do I need to pasturize the casing? If I case just a small corner as a test would that be bad?

This is the main reason I'm concerned.

It's not cased, you're looking at the compost, and as I said the pic's really make it look better than it looks to the naked eye. It smells musty/shroomy, not at all sour. It is a translucent rubbermaid tub, but I've covered the sides w/cardboard.

The depth/shape of the cake is deceiving. It's actually only a mound in the bottom of the tub ranging from 0" at the edges to 2" high in the middle.

I have back-up dried for the 4th, but I wan't fresh! Never done fresh!

Do you really think I mighht make it? Any suggestions to get it to pin?

Well, I sure am hoping beatle! No real biggie if it doesn't happen, I've got some 5 year old dired ones that still work awesome (at least they did back in December) and when your talking 5 years old, what's another 7 months? 5 grams should put me up on the moon!

My apologies for stealing your pic for my sig.

Yes. I've been considering doing that in the next few days if there's still no change. I just want the mycelium growth to peak out on the compost first. There are still a few small clumps that aren't fully colonized. Once they are it'll be time for the fridge.

Thanks for the tip.
