how many times did you people use cakes before trying casings when you were first starting to grow?

Once, and I vow to never go back to cakes.

They just didn't treat me right, poor flushes, lots of work needed (fanning, misting, etc) for the final product. I turned to dung and it's working out so far.

SWIM just harvested http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum2&Number=956707&page=1&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=

That's SWIM's first grow ever... He highly recommends you ditch cakes and do casings... Whoever said "cakes are for newbs" is a freakin idiot.

The raccons first attempt was with 4 pint cakes. After they fruited, the Coon said WTF, lets try dung/straw. Those first 4 cakes were his first & last. He learned G2G transfers & never went back.

My first time growing I used cakes, cased all but one, and cased that one after the first flush. Now I usually spawn to bulk substrates with preferable results. If I'm paranoid about contams, I still use a cake now and again if I need to insure at least one viable spore print or culture as a result.

I'll use cakes if I REALLY want some fruits from an old strain and like bowling-name if I'm scared of contams, or if I'm trying out a new strain and I just want a couple of fruits, I'll grow out one or two cakes. A shroom is a shroom is a shroom.

I did just enough cakes to get a specimen big enough to clone. My first time I inoculated 24 half-pints and lost 2 to contamination. Cakes are a good way to learn the life cycle and get started, but they're not really a very efficient way to produce good size amounts of mush.

I only fruited cakes one time. Then crumbed and cased cakes and spawned dung/straw with cakes one time. Now I work with grain.

I think cakes are good for the first timer though. Its good to do about one time. I got a couple of my buddies into this stuff and I set them up with cakes for their first time.

First attempts were with grain. Fruited fine. When I did try cakes for the hell of it, those were all cased too. I've only fruited a couple cakes just for fun. I did get a couple HUGE monster fruits off them though, so it was cool. I stick to grain.  :smile:
