just finished putting together my first rye casing
    #8294685 - 04/17/08 03:37 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)





the pics aren't great but they atleast show what I did.

my casing layer (about 5/8" thick to 3" thick of rye) is 50/50/10 schultz peat moss/garden vermiculite/limestone powder. added a pinch of hydrated lime which left my pH at 7.5-7.9 (litmus paper guess) right before pastuerization. The mix clumped together, and dribbled a bit of water when squeezed tightly. I used RR's tek for pastuerizing.

I used 3 rye jars, each w/about a half pint of colonized rye, and thats a gladware container theyre in. I ousted the room and then did the actual transfer in a crude glovebox, pre-sanitized with heavy misting of 27% h2o2 all over inside. all 3 jars had caked together pretty tightly and I had to crumble them by hand (glove), but i feel pretty good about the sterility inside the box (and on the hand surfaces of the gloves), in addition to a favorable pH to guard against contams.

I cut out a piece of the gladware lid and siliconed some tyvek over while theyre still in the IC. I left the side of the container uncovered for now so I can see whats happening. I'll probably put them in FC when the mycellium starts rebuilding from the transfer.

Should I give it a little more time to start seeing myc poke through the casing layer? Or is seeing the myc under the casing build back up enough? I've heard that it's really a preference thing.

thanks for lookin,
-Jon

anyone? seems most ppl agree that FAE helps prevent contamination pretty effectively... should I just put it into FC now to have that advantage? Or am I just as well off with having the filtered lid on?
