Should i scrape my cakes?
    #9138088 - 10/26/08 08:05 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I dont really know what the purpose of scraping is but i've heard a few people talk about it.
The thing is that my cakes are finishing their 2nd flush probably tomorrow, i'm going to dunk them for 24 hrs and then i was thinking of scraping them because there seems to be a few very very very small aborts and some flesh that was really hard to remove from previous mushrooms, would you recommend me to do this?
Also, i have no idea on how to do it, any info is appreciated. Thanks!

never heard of scraping a cake, a casing when it gets overlayu but as far as I know there is no need to scrape a cake. Dunk, roll and watch nature take its course!!!(with a little help)

u can pick the aborts off, i find pinching them off works if necessary. if u pick the mushrooms when they are ready and not when you want to you will find there is less left on the cake and they come off easy. just be patient and try to remove the majority of the mushroom on each harvest. enjoy!!

I scrape them, and this is my first time and they're doing good. Even got 53 wet grams from one of them in the first flush. :thumbup:

Nilla recommends doing that to also stimulate pinning, I would try both, and see what floats your boat.
Can't go wrong one way or the other.

it has been my experience that 53 wet grams should be about your average for a brf cake. this is based on only two flushes so if you flush a third time then up the average weights.:)

Scraping is done basically for ovelaid cased substrates and even then it is a controversial subject.

I certainly wouldn't go about damaging healthy mycelium in a cake, it isn't going to give you any benefits and is an additional risk for contamination.
