Supa Cake
« on: January 09, 2010, 10:20:00 AM »

Here is this cake of sorts. It was going to be a casing of B+ straw/castings, but when I cased it I pulled the foil container sides out so I could get the casing material down in the edges and over the top. I let that colonize, cut away the baking tray and placed the "cake" on some foil in the FC. The idea being that it will fruit from five sides. (The angle kind of sucks on this pic.)

Damn it! My cake was just starting to knot up and a little trich started to show. I can't remember the method to try to save it. It had to do w/ a salt paste and cutting out the contaminant.

Cut out the contam and pack the area with common table salt. If this doesn't get rid of it you may be able to hold of the evil green long enough to harvest your next flush at least.

Alright, I cut out the trich and packed the holes with a salt paste. My fingers are crossed. You know, I pasteurized the casing this time instead of sterilizing. Maybe that's where I went wrong.

Dub,
  I am inclined to agree on that pasteurization, as a possible point of failure.  I have seen/heard of the very same events from most that went that route.  Thus the reason I have always PC'd Everything!
  But as MT stated, you may have bought enough time to get at least a good flush.  I might suggest letting this one fruit in isolation.    You know, Bad news travels fast!
  GL Bro!

The tradeoff is between size and speed. The bigger the cake the slower the colonization and the more chance for contamination. I just had to dump two trays with trich. sux.

Those that fruited look yummy but it looks to be about the same yield as a half pint cake that was not infected. If you have it isolated then be patient. You may get another flush. IME the next flush tends to stall out with the fruits looking small. :angry: Damn trich.

Trash it and start over. Better luck next time. Don't forget to sterilize everything.
