If the cakes are water logged, they'll turn a yellow color IME's.

Never seen mine go yellow, but I have had them just crumble and fall apart and be impossible to pick up by hand. Just mush from the mush cake and not the good mush. :D:dance:

adding a bit of 'casing' of dry verm a la the double end case method helped out tons when i had problems with soggy invitro jars. sucks up any excess and lets it evaporate back out as needed.

Let the tanks air a bit

That is exactly what I did last night Dooby and they are looking better already. I shouldn't have messed with what I was doing, 12 hr. dunks from now on. The reason I amped 'em up was because I read the thread where fahtster was going at it a bit with the professor over how to get great flushes. I believe the post was something like: "water, water, water, water etc." When I went back and read it again I realized his point was in the brf mix. I thought maybe my cakes would do better with a longer dunk. Boy was I wrong. Thanks for the help everyone.

with clean hands make sure you pick every little abort, dunk if you like and return to the grow area
you could wipe down the container it's in if you want as well

I rinse, then dunk for a couple hours, rinse again, put it on a rack to get excess water off, then recase. all done in the same container usually.

hey im a little confused on what exactly your supposed to do after yours flushes, dunk them then put them exatly how they were before you dunked them with the casing that was orginally layed down and colonized untouched or do you scrape it or not and then do you recase it then when you rease it do u put it back into incubation or do you recase it and put it back into the fruiting chamber if you do rease and put it back into the fruiting chamber it would seem like the casing would not be able to recolonize the new casing layer i tried all these methods and it dosent seem like any of them imrpoved the next flush can anyone dirct me to some good post harvest care im having treouble findin good info on this subject

U want to clean the cake of any aborted pins or stubs and old casing..
A serrated steak knife works well...
Then dunk in clean cold water for 12 hrs or so ..If u weigh your cake b4 and after dunking, it will give you an idea of the water absorbtion rate..

Follow your main dunk with a quick dip in a peroxide or bleach solution
before a fresh casing is added ...Then your good for the next flush...

so when i add the fresh casing the myc will never colonize it... or do you put it back in incubation after you add the fresh casing?
