After a casing flushed, and after dunking, should the casing be flipped on the other side to fruit or recased on the same side?

i would think to not flip it, as 1 side has already pinned, its most likely to pin again.
a lot of fruits would grow on the bottom, if flipped i think.

after you dunk, you should use a fork or something and break the casing up. into little chunks like when you first broke up your cakes. Then recase.

:D


the last time i did this it contam'd. maybe i was using a dirty fork

tumbz
that's not true,
plz refrain from giving bogus advice.
breaking up a casing for what reason ?
that would just set one back, waste time.

Eh, I learned that from an old thread.

I remember it was by HF.

It said that after he flushes his casings, he would take a fork and loosen up the casing and MIST it INSTEAD of dunking it.

Then recase.

I didnt mean to teach wrong.

I personally have done this, and it works 105%.

this scratching thru casing, not breaking up the substrate.
When dunking, one usually cleans the casing layer off and re-cases after dunk.

Oh.

i dont really see a big difference between.

"after you dunk, you should use a fork or something and break the casing up. into little chunks like when you first broke up your cakes. Then recase."

AND


" Scoop or stir the casing layer. Scooping involves bringing the bottom of the casing layer to the surface. Stirring involves putting the fork through the casing layer then twisting. The goal is to make the casing layer loose and airy. Choose one or a combination of these methods to loosen the entire casing layer "

there's a big difference
between breaking up/loosening the used casing layer
and breaking up the entire 'casing' [including substrate]
the way you phrased it gives a erronious impression
HF never meant for the actual substrate layer to be disturbed
just the thin casing layer itself

Ok Hippie.

No harm intended.

But i have a quick question for you.

After a casing flushes, and you wash off the casing layer, isnt the substrate like a block? It is right?

If i DID NOT dunk this block , and i simply misted it. Then recased it. Would the Block soak up the misted water?

Thats why i thought if i used a fork and broke up the Block , then misted it, it would soak up much better. It will also stimulate the mycelium.

If i said anything wrong hippie, you could delete my post.

Everything i just posted i learned from Mycoptopia.net and have done myself.

:D

If you break up the "block" or mycelium, you will have to wait a longer time for it to recover. Thus not a good idea.

breaking up a mycellial block won't improve it's ability to soak up water much, if any.
not to mention that anyone who knows what they're doing
would not even try doing it that way.
the truth is
you just gave bad advice and now you're trying to wiggle out of it.
