Warm dunking before casing
    #822265 - 08/16/02 10:44 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Hey everyone
Wasn't sure weather this goes in general or advanced, just bunged it in here cause its an 'experimental procedure'. Anyway, here goes.
I read a post a couple of weeks back saying that dunking before casing works really well (I think it mighta been Dreamatrix). But one thing I was thinking about was that the drawback of dunking before casing is that it gives the mycelium a cold shock too early which could mess with fruiting. So, in theory, an even better thing to do would be:
-Put container filled with water into incubation chamber, wait till it reaces 80-85 F
-Dunk cakes as per usual
-Case
-Cold shock / switch to fruiting mode when ready
-Reap rewards!

This is a pretty simple idea and I have a feeling it could really put some oomph into casings. (not that they didn't already have oomph!)

Does no one have an opinion / experience on this?
