Pretty Basic LC Questions
    #11412287 - 11/08/09 06:24 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

Three Part Question:

1)I want to make an easy LC.  Any tips/tricks on taking a colonized WBS grain and dropping it in sterilized water? I tried it once but it took a long time to grow out. I sterilized some eyebrow tweezers and grabbed one and dropped it in. I havent had great luck dropping agar into it.

2)Also, can I drop a few cc's of MS into sterilzed water for an LC? I guess what Im asking is will myc grow or is it so diluted its a waste. 

3)LC's need a hole for gas exchange?
I appreciate it...

1-just take the myceliel tissue and drop that in

2-no it will not germinate becuz it has no nutrients to thrive upon

3-no...but it helps ...the vacuum suck..if you have no extra hole ..the vacuum suck will suck all your MS out in about 1-second

Please +REP if i've been of any help... thanks!!!

Damion, thanks for the links. I have those links, Grain LC water especially, but I am hoping this way is the easiest/safest bet.

1)So the grain is a waste, maybe just scrape some off somewhere?

2)So that is why honey/karo is added? I guess once it is myc it isn't necessary?

3)Vacuum suck?

2) the additive other than water is the nutrient base for it to grow upon, once this is fully consumed by the myc (1-2 weeks @ 4%/100mL?) you'll want to refrigerate it, which can be kept for months.

3) by creating a seal (no air holes) you've essentially got a vaccum, (assuming you PC it, not sure if steam sterilization does the same thing) and if you were to inject your MS / mycelium via injection, the vaccum will suck the syringe out whether you want to or not.
