honey water without the honey??
    #1075987 - 11/22/02 07:12 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

greetings everyone...

a little bever i know is thinking about doing an experiment. now hes seen people use yeast as an alternative to using honey... now he had an idea.... this beavers grandmother has Diaibetes (sp) and has these glucose tablets that are square about 1" X 1".... he was wondering if it were possible to get a better liquid culture this way, or if anyone has tried this before how were your results... it was just a theroy considering perhaps the spores would feed off the glucose and work.,.. anyone?

I'm certain glucose would work.

now, I've always wondered this. The carbs in honey is a monosaccharide, glucose which mycelium likes. Sucrose/table sugar is a disaccharide, composed of 2 monosaccharides which mycelium doesn't like. If you boil sucrose with water it breaks up into glucose and fructose. This technique is employed while while making your own beer. Does mycelium fructose, or will using sugar cane not work?

Don't mess with Granma's diabetic supplies!!! BAD, Bad, Bad!
Dextrose is $2-$2.50 for a life time supply of 2 pounds( you use it by the gram).
She probably paid considerably more for her stuff.
Experiment-what about using dog food broth or something.

"This technique is employed while while making your own beer. Does mycelium fructose, or will using sugar cane not work"

What the hell does that mean?

My friend bought a bottle of those, and used them in his pitri dishes... They had other additives like orange food coloring, etc...

Anyway, it seemed to slow the growth of the mycellium. But give it a try. You may have better luck then he.
