Mixing Mold 600.....AKA M-EK-4

You need to inoculate the mold 600 before applying to your salami. Needs a good 12+ hours before adding any distilled or filtered room temp water.

Best if you can dip the links or spray the 600.

Dont throw you fermenting agents out at 6 months. Keep them in the original packaging and frozen.

Wine mixed in. Then add the 007. Let it stand on top of the mix for a few mins before mixing.
Once mixed cover and let stand for bout 45 mins before stuffing.

Big like!

I see you dip your links in the mold solution. I have had success brushing on....full coverage and no issues.

When i use 600 i normally brush but cant locate my bristle brush YIKES :emoji_astonished:

I already had LS in my spray bottle so the dunk was what i did. The 600 was mixed for 2 days and was growing in the container so i hope i get good growth on the links. I also used a bread towel to wipe down the inside of the barrel with the 600. Was going to put the barrel in the shed but its been like close to 90 outside so i put in the rv where the ac is keeping things cool.
