I dunked 1 cake of 6 in quart jar with bottled water and 1/4 tsp of nutritional yeast.
After 24 hrs in the fridge the cake had a green tint to it but
after 3-1/2 days in the fruiting chamber it's the only one to have started pinning.
Has anyone ever tried this before?

And I think so because I put a colonized WBS half-pint cake (Yangoon Burma, I believe it was STOM) in a 4 inch square plastic container, about 1/2 inch wet perlite, then the crumbled cake, and 1/2 inch potting soil.
Then I sprinkled Red Star active dry yeast on half of the surface of the now layered container. Put into the ever-loving homemade Martha (3 stacked milk crates covered with plastic and a three dollar Goodwill humidifier)
And on the half that had the yeast is where I got all my happy friends popping up. Well, ok they weren't all that happy, they were kinda small. But they were very friendly.
It's hardly conclusive but it's sure worth considering. I got the idea from here of course but have so read so many threads that it is hard sometimes for me to remember whose good idea I'm stealing. Mea culpa.
