Honey alternatives?
    #1126749 - 12/09/02 11:14 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I have read that Karo can be used as an alternative, but has anyone tried molassas (sp)? I believe it is very sugar based, but it might be too thick. What do you guys think?

No, I doubt that it will work. And if it did it would probably darken the water so much you couldn't see contams.

Hippie tried molasses and dind't like it. He dsaid it was too dark.

I did some research and found that molasses is mostly sucrose, a diglyceride, and shrooms prefer monoglycerides.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.
