honey water related question
    #1350174 - 03/04/03 03:13 PM (14 years, 23 days ago)

okie, just got a quick question related to using honey water....

I innoculated my jars last sunday (over a week ago), and in one of them, I can see a lot of fluffy white stuff... though, it's all along the bottom, and I can vaugely remember someone saying something about how mycelium is supposed to grow along the top....

how would I know if this is a contam, regular happy mycelium, or some other weird thing?

oh yea, one more quicky; how can one tell if a honey-water jar has carmelized, and what effect does carmelization have on colonization?

caramelized honey looks much darker than regular honey, almost like brewed tea, when this happens the spores have nothing to consum because the sugars have been converted into a non-nutritive substance. Healthy mycelium is white, visibly white like paper, with ropey strands. If the growth is more of a light cottony texture thats a little hard to see with a close inspection, than its more than likely cobweb mold (hence the name) and if its anything but white (red, black, green, purple) that isn't good. Also give it a smell, anything sour or anything but sweet mushyness then chuck it. If its blue, that could just be bruising (if at all possible at this stage) which i doubt. anyway, good luck.

hmmmm....

ok, the colour of the water is light yellow, so that should be cool....

the white stuff is, well, white, it looks like a lot of short white stuff clumped together...

I took a whiff of it and it smelled like... honey. not mushroomy, not stinky, just honey....

I wish I had a camera to show some picks, but sadly I don't. Are there any pictures of colonizing honey water kicking around?
