Figures 123, 124 &
125 Casing a tray of
grain spawn. First the
fully colonized grain is
carefully broken up and
evenly distributed into
the tray. As an option, a
layer of partially
moistened vermiculite
can be placed along the
bottom of the tray to
absorb excess water. If
the grain appears to
have uncolonized
kernels, cover the
container with plastic
and let the spawn
recover for 24 hours
before casing.
Otherwise, casing can
proceed immediately
after the spawn has
been laid out.
