I've been adding Karo to the water during dunks and noticed some better growth. Is adding Karo advisable to help in yield? I know risk for contams increases, but is there any other downfall?

I add Karo and soy milk sometimes in the dunk water with decent results. But i've lost some too. The older casings i'm trying to squeeze another flush out of always crap out.

Excellent! If anyone was wondering, I had sprayed diluted H202 on 4 casings in hopes of trying to get rid of trich and prevent contams. Well, after stunting growth on all of them, Looper had suggested dunking them with some bleach added to the water. So far, 2 have flushed and just came out of dunks, the other 2 are finishing flushing with no signs of contams on any of them.
Thanks again, Looper!

gotta love my bleach tek,
amazing.
were these casings the same as those with karo ?
i have milk-dunked cakes b4
but never dared to even try a nute dunk on a casing.
figured that would ensure massive contams PDQ

Thanks for the archive Hip.

I live by bleach dunking/dipping for contams and it seems that bleach somewhat induces pinning and new growth as well.

were these casings the same as those with karo ?

No, these were 4 different ones. I have 9 casings going right now total.
