Agar questions?
    #11181917 - 10/04/09 07:40 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

ok well first of all my agar nutes worked (used molasses and grain water)

my sterile tek suked (100% contam) because i tried PCing them after i filled them and that cause excess water in the dishes and the all comtamed.

here ate my questions

#1 do i have to rehydrate spores before streaking
#2 can i store uncooked agar solution after PCing it and just reheat it to pour again?
#3 anyone got any spare agar powder they wanna send me. i will trade for a print or a PE swab?

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

so does honey water and agar but its slightly shitty.

That water is teeming with potential contams. Use plain water, tap is fine, distilled is good.
