I think you should raise your temperature a bit. See how that does in a few days. If not I say DUNK AND COLD SHOCK those stubborn cakes!

Have you considered casing? I used to have a lot of trouble trying to get cakes to pin, I put the unpinned cakes in casing and it worked great. If you have ten cakes, you could try casing a couple and see how it goes.

Straight verm is perfect for a first time casing. Aside from some issues visually determining moisture content, it's hard to fuck up straight verm.

the temp at 75 oF is fine. however, your main problem is lack of light. twelve hours is optimal but less time can suffice. it is also possible that the little light you give them during fanning is enough to initiate pins, but being outside the ideal i would expect a delay for pinning to begin (like you may be experiencing).

at this point, if they were my cakes i would provide twelve hours of light and wait. you will not need to dunk, inject water, cold shock, or do anything else. any unnecessary procedure only allows for increased avenues for bacterial invasion. patients, patience, patience.
