Nocked them up and full colinated in a little over three weeks with no contam.
birthed and bleach dunked of 16 hrs. doubled cased and in GC. A few days later i noticed the mycil seemed to go back to vegitation stage. Fluffy mycil growing on cake. Other cakes i grew did not get this fluffy.
The temp was dropped 10 degrees from incubation temp.
Grow chamber is between 72F and 80F degrees. Fanned three to four times a day. Casing verm is damp and i spray. No pins as of yet . but i have readthat this may be over lay ? I have herd of casings getting overlay from too much rh and / or too little. I need so insite and advice from the experts !
Check out the pic's and any ideas of whatis going on ? Too humid ? too warm ? I'm at a loss. All my other cakes pinned within five days in the GC.
This is a trial to see if bigger cakes would equal to bigger flushes. Now im scratching my head as to where i went wrong ? any ideas ?

it's often just a sign of high humidity
perfectly normal for happy healthy mycellia
i would imagine
it's not finished colonizing inside its' center yet
pinning will be delayed

these cakes 32 ounce were nocked up with multi spore.
Full 10cc nock up each. As usual around the outside and also in a circle in the middle. bleach dunked as said before. Now 12 days in the GC one of the cakes has started pinning:headbang: The other has not and has less fluffy mycil.
here are the close ups

MfoaF started his first 1/2 pint pf tec just six months ago.
With the help of the vast knowledge of the vaults,grow logs,personal interaction.
This site has given him the confidence to explore this ever mind expanding world of mycology.
Back to the proof. My FOAF's current project, brf Quart is proving to be very fruitfull. The B+ Is exploding ! As he wished ! Good karma i guess ? The pe cake is just starting to pin> Check the myco porn ! he hopes you like it as much as he does ! What he did forget to mention in the first post was, he added two tea spoons of pickling lime to the mix. His thoughts. big cake longer clolinization time more time for contams. Anyhoo! it seems to work out just fine.
Blind all this time, i'm just learning to see....
PEACE OUT !~:headbang:

They take up as much space as for half pt cakes in the GC. Just easyer to dunk and case a big cake the a bunch of little cakes !

I'm thinking the first bleach dunk after birth may have been too strong ? First time ever bleach dunked. usually just use proxy. never had problems with PE fruiting.
Sorry about the fuzzy PE pic's.

FOAF just nocked up another 3 cup container with P.R. Took a few days longer to see growth then usual. I havent really looked in the vaults to see how
puerto rican do on brf cakes. I guess that will be another thred !
Again , thanks for all the KIND input !
