Hi,
I'm just curious if there is a right way since the small pin aborts are so small they are difficult to remove so I have been taking a razor knife and just cutting off about 1/8" - 1/4" off the cake where the cluster of aborts are prior to dunking. I'm just wondering if there is a more preferred method:)

Thanks

LoL how small are we talking. I put a glove on and just pick. I guess you could use tweezers if they are really small. Try not to disturb the mycellium around it too much.

I use the twist and pull method. I hate having purple stumps on my cake. But there is nothing wrong with a scalpel many people do it that way too.

 Some people will scrape the cakes, but a lot will say not to & to just pick em off as best you can.

 

 I have shaved off 1/4" from cakes and they  tiook a week or so but they did fruit one more time. I was removing yellow myc metabolites from bacteria after 3 flushes.

 

That might not help you but someone will come along and give a second opinion. Good luck man.

I usually just rub a finger across them and they fall off. Any that don't, I don't worry about. Dunk away. They'll just revert to mycelium.
