Dunking for Dummies?
    #972708 - 10/18/02 05:54 PM (18 years, 10 months ago)

Are there any dunk teks? or can someone explain their dunking process to me? I know it's a lame question, I apologize.
:confused:

All i do is this...
1. Get a jug or something that is bigger in height than my cake
2. Fill up with water, enough to go over the top of the cake, so its totally underwater.
3. Put cake in water...
4. Put somewhat heavy object on cake, and leave for 12 hours, i usually do it a couple of hours before i goto bed, then take the cake out in the morning.
5. Put cake back in terranium.
6. Wait.
7. SHROOMS!

.... and FYI i dont boil the water or anything, straight from the tap, and ive never had a problem.

Dunking is not rocket science...it's a means to ensure optimal moisture content in your cakes. All you need is a container large enough to hold your cakes, place them in gently, fill to the top with bottled water (I use distilled) and I put the container in the fridge for 12 hours. Works REALLY well and makes a huge difference in both amount of shrooms as well as caliber/quality of fruit bodies.

Good luck.

Peace,

Bop

This tek should be used whenever the cakes/casings dry out. Also it can be given after full colonization to replace water lost so far.
The tek itself is quite simple. It essentially consists of submersion of the cake/casing underwater for 12 to 24 hours. Don't worry, that will not harm your cakes/casings. This is best done under refridgeration, if possible.
One can even dunk cakes/casing that already have small pins safely. Just don't overdo it, by 48 hours underwater they will be dead.
As for what kind of water to use, natural spring water is best but you can even use it straight from your faucet if need be.
Temperature during the dunking should be cold, or as cool as possible and still above freezing.
Time spent dunking should be not less than 6 hours for minimal benefits. 12 hours is about right for dunking in between flushes and at birth but 24 hours is the maximum for full rehydration of nearly spent cakes.
There are at least 2 options for how to dunk. My prefered method is to dunk each cake individually by placing it in a jar, filling with water, then screw on the lid to keep the cake submerged. This way is good for small batches, and has the advantage of keeping each cake isolated so no contaminants are spread from cake to cake.
For larger batches, you can simply place several cakes in a large pan or bucket, cover with water and weigh down the cakes by placing a weighted down lid, plate, etc. on top of the cakes.
After dunking, drain well, gently pat dry with paper towels, etc. and return it to the fruiting environment

When dunking, use cold water from the fridge (no ice).

Thanks everyone! And Anno, I have read the FAQ. :smile: There's just so much information scattered throughout a bunch of different places, that it's sometimes hard to find the same piece of information twice. Also, sometimes two different sources contradict each other so much that it's hard to know which one to trust. I appreciate all of the help this site provides though! Keep up the good work.
