Crumbling cales vs solid
« on: February 20, 2010, 01:30:13 AM »

Im not so sure on the conversations I have seen.  SO when you say crumbling your cakes, you mean once the mycelium has grown and is close to fruiting in a jar, you crumble them and spread them in a case and ad a casing layer over that, let it sit fora  few more days and then fruit? 

so how do you do a second flush if it is crumbled, do you still put the mix in water and then filter it and set it back in its case?

Im confused.

Pick the fruits off,  patch the holes with casing layer and mist it good.

Crumble when your cakes are 100% colonized. Casing layer like a sandwich: bottom of pan, substrate, then another layer of casing. Let the myce colonize the casing just until it pops through the casing ( in the valleys). Introduce to fruiting conditions.

Of course shroomzer is dead on on the second question... I would add that there should be enough moisture in the cake and substrate to support another flush, no need for dunking here...
