syrup's for LC
    #11399899 - 11/06/09 07:23 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

The tek's i see in agar and LC sub forum i see they are using corn syrup which i don't see in the supermarket here, will any kind of syrup work instead or maybe even honey?

I bought Lyle's Golden syrup to try instead, i don't known what its made from.

honey will work.. molasses, corn syrup (karo)

but table syrup is HIGH FRUCTOSE corn syrup, not good to use..

read the ingredients. if it say high fructose, dont use it

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.

karo has high fructose in it along with dextrose. High fructose is obviously no harm if karo works.

Just got great results with raw sugar. Use 5 percent raw sugar by weight. This worked better IME than karo. Grew ATL 7 myc quickly with excellent clarity.

Lots of nutritionists have blamed high fructose corn syrup for soaring obesity and diabetes in the US and other countries.  Due to stiff import taxes on cane sugar, hfcs has become increasingly common. Australia has shown a similar apparent correlation between obesity and hfcs.

The stuff won't kill you, at least not right away. But compared to cane sugar it tastes like garbage. Try a coca-cola from Mexico or the Caribbean.

plain karo works great, even better if you add some malt...there are other things you can use but ultimately you have to keep the mix around 4% sugar, don't exceed 9% or it wont grow...

thanks for all the replies guys, i didn't expect so much, i'll see how the syrup i already got goes for now and try malt/dextrose once i have incubator set up

only doing this really to try and rule things out of why my first attempt to spawn on WBS isn't working, if i see mycelium growing in this at least i know my spores are legit

The OP is in England, you will not get Karo in the UK. I just use honey, I also used clear apple juice once. Dextrose is also a US thing, you will get glucose in the babyfood section in supermarkets, or the baking section.

Also I find less is more with LCs, i.e. I go for under the 4% used by many, like just 0.5-1%

Your golden syrup is just inverted sugar syrup, will probably work lyles treacle might have been better, but might be too dark, treacle is molasses.

Also find glucose/dextrose (two names, same thing) in diabetic supplies section of any pharmacy.

Oh, that will work for sure. Invert sugar is glucose+fructose. Use it at 4% by weight or less, just like karo or honey.
