Dextrose + BRF as Substrate
    #1273144 - 02/03/03 08:12 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Has anyone try this? I've read some posts from BoomerZ, but I don't know he had success or not. I made three 2pint (1liter) plasticbox full of vermi + RBF + dextrose + fructose and now I'am waiting for the signs of growth. Am I idiot?  :confused:

Another topic: I made 8 PF-tek cakes and after the second flush they are getting weaker and weaker. That is why I find out to inoculate my cakes with dextrose+water. I will sterilize them in microwave. Is it safe enough? Will I have bigger flush after that? How much water + dextrose should I use?
I've searched the whole forum, I didn't find any answer to my quastions, so please excuse me if i was a lamer. :tongue: Thank you in advance! :grin:

I experimented with dextrose a couple years ago. Added a tiny amount to each jar back when I did the PF tek. All of them got contaminated.. whether that was my sterility problems or the dextrose I don't know..but I wasn't interested enough to keep pursuing it. I found much better results with RYE on straw or cased.

No, don't sterilize in the microwave. At least I would never do it.
