Cold shocking without a fridge?
    #770448 - 07/23/02 01:29 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, I have innoculated my jars (3 dozen to be exact) and they are colonizing at quite a rapid rate... My problem is that it is quite warm in my grow area and I have had problems initiating pins in similar conditions. Before, I had access to a refridgerator, so cold shocking my cakes/casings was never a problem. However, my roommate ditched me a while back and I'm stuck living with my parents for a few months while I look for a house, and I wouldn't want to see the look on my mothers face when she found a big lump of white fungus in her fridge... So, my question is, are there any other ways to cold shock without the aid of a refridgerator? Maybe I could wrap a few ice packs in a towel or something and put them in a large cooler with my cakes? What would happen if when I dunk my cakes if I kept the water cold with ice packs or ice cubes, would that work? Thanks for any help you can give me!

Considering your options, I would say try it.

Put your cakes in ziploc baggies filled with water for your dunk. Dump a bag of ice in the bottom of a camping cooler of some sort, something flat on top of the ice (like a cutting board of a piece of plywood), and your cakes on the flat surface (to prevent direct contact with the ice).

That'll shock the hell outa 'em.

Cold shocking is rarely if ever needed.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
