cold shocking in fridge?
    #997627 - 10/27/02 08:43 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

my friend has some bulk trays of ecudors on straw... they're about to go into the fruiting cham.... my question is can he cold shock them in the fridge, suppose he replace the poked wrap on top so no contams enter (fridge is probably a contam vault at his house) then place them in the fridge for a couple hours? maybe 2? 4? 6? he has tried not cold shokcing cakes of ecudors and had no pins even form, so he's concerned for a reason. anything else we should consider? i told him he needs to be like clockwork on his misting, lighting, & air xchange since he has been lazy on this in the past, then worry about cold shocking... spores came from www.earthstongue.com (seem like good people btw) and they offer 20cc syringes at 10cc prices. any light you master can shed would be much appreciated.

I don't think its necessary to cold shock casings, but it may be beneficial. If you feel like your fridge is dirty, then seran wrap the casing like a mofo. And I'd say if you were gonna shock, try doing it for at least 10 hours, but I really can't speak from experience, but I have cold shocked cakes, and with them I kept them in the fridge for almost a day.

I'm with Skikid. Cold shock for at least 10 hours. The tigers usually end up doing about 12. Psilocybe cubensis doesn't -need- cold shocking, but it doesn't hurt.
