Casing Question
    #876594 - 09/11/02 06:28 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

This is going to be my first atempt at casing. I have 12 half pint jars with brf/vermiculate. I plan to case with
vermiculite. should I use a bottom casing layer or not? I heard there are pros and cons to both, using a bottom
one and not.

I use a bottom casing layer if that helps :smile:  Don't think it really matters though.  If you have some extra room in your tray it couldn't hurt to use one.  Just make sure to spray it with a diluted h2o2 solution.  Peace

i never use one either. I can only think of pne pro off hand though of using one, which is, the absorbtion of any excess water.

I've used a wet vermiculite bottom layer to provide additional water.
