Huge MOFO 12' x 24' casing
    #842880 - 08/25/02 06:38 PM (21 years, 6 months ago)

Hey was wondering if I could simply case within a 12? x 24? fish tank without the use of secondary containers. Was just wondering if crumbling maybe 12 or so BRF cakes and casing with verm would work out cool. What problems may I run into...I can definately see over saturation being a problem. Feedback is appreciated.

Should work. Be sure and cover the outside with opaque tape (black electrical tape works good here) up to the verm layer on top.

In reply to:

you're gonna be fucked if you get contams!


Yeah, but if it's contained in its own unit, it has less of a chance to spread to other casings.

Why has no-one suggested spawning some poo or straw into that container.
Leaving you with loads more spawn for more tubs of poo/straw.

In reply to:

yeah, but if he made 5 casings out of that area, he would have 1/5th the chance of all of his work going down the drain if one casing got contam'd. it'll be harder to contain the contam with a huge casing...


True, if those are his only cakes, he should break them up into multiple casings.

hmmm decisions, decisions, so I can either fuck it and make a big mofo casing 'prolly get a huge yield', go with a few seperate casings 'much safer', or get some poo and spawn some of that shit 'i did'nt think about this'...so what the hell do I do, lets keep in mind that I have that I have 24 fully colonized BRF cakes.

If you have 24 cakes, why don't you try one or more of these:

1. Fruit PF style.
2. Crumble and case.
3. Spawn dung/compost.
4. Put some compost in the ground or a pot outside and crumble a cake in there.
5. Innoculate some rye or birdseed with some cake crumblings for later.

Sure you can ( ). Crank up the flow hood or hepa filter, be clean & carefull, use 10% or better spawn & go for it. More spawn is better. This one is a compost mix & just had a top casing layer applied a few days ago ( % 30 verm - 29 peat - 29 coir - 5 calcuim carbonate - 5 Diatomite - 2 bone meal). It is just starting to reach through the casing layer & should pin shortly. Temp is 80F & relative humidity @ 86%. All is well -- that ends well . Some you win, others you lose . The winners make up for the losers .
