Hey that tx looks great. I have a syringe of it but haven't tried it yet. Looks sweet. Great pin set and pic's. how many brf jars were used ? and what size is that pan?

I think I am going to increase my number of jars used per lasagna tray this season. I had been using like 4 1/2 pint size jars and not getting the pin set desired.

Ya thats a nice flush there man! Looks like you got a perfect amount of Casing layer colonization. Do you do the sprinkle and patch case method?:kewl:

4 in one, 5 in the other (five in the deeper one) they are about 9" by 13" i guess?

I'm assuming you broke up the cakes to make an even layer? I've seen some people put the whole cakes in there on their side.

The cakes were crumbled to very small bits, then mixed with the substrate. (shredded straw & coir)

no sprinkling or patching, foaf uses the "plowing" method. Once the casing layer is applied, he uses a spoon to "plow" the casing layer just like one would plow a field. When he's done there's rows of what looks like mountains and valleys. Then he very, very lightly runs the round part of the spoon over the casing layer to knock the tops of the 'mountains' into the 'valleys'. This creates lots of air pockets in the casing layer, which helps pin formation. After that he just maintains 90% rh and lets it go.

Can you further explain how you "plow" the substrate and start from the beginning? It sure looks like exceptional results to me...

not the substrate, the casing layer. the end of the spoon is pressed into the casing layer and moved across it to make parallel lines. not sure how else to describe it. i'll try to get pics.

foaf got home from work to find this. Some pics were taken during harvest so you can see how dense they were in the middle. Fruits were nice 'n solid. First 3 pics are one tray, next 5 pics are another tray.
