Too much honey water?
    #1052161 - 11/14/02 12:41 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Alright... I was in the process of preparing 18 jars... I decided to add some honey into boiling water for my substrate... when I was maken the honey water solution I dumped in 3 hearty squeezes of honey... Could it be that I put in too much honey? When I made the jars I noticed a honey residue on the sides of the jars (kinda like a smear)... good? bad?

I wouldn't really worry about it. It will just be extra food for the Mycelium.

Too much honey will cause your solution to carmelize thus making it harder to spot contams.  I believe 100ccs (about 1/2 of a 1/2 pint) of water  TO  1/2 - 1 teaspoon of honey works good.  However, if it does carmelize it still may work.
