Honey Water Contams?
    #1436525 - 04/07/03 04:50 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I've just finished my first try at the Honey Water Tek. It worked really well. I had just one question come to mind though. If honey water gets contaminated, what would it look like?

hard too see them man. but anything thats not bright white fluffy mycel strands should be considered a contam, treat with h2o2.

I was wondering what 'treating' contamination with peroxide would do? With the exception of a bacterial contamination, wouldn't germinated yeast, or other fungal contamination live through the peroxide the same as mushroom mycilium? Am I mistaken some how?

yeah, contaminants (not all but many) produce peroxidase as well (the stuff that myceliumm uses to break down h2o2). I have never identified a contaminant in my HW but I definitely know when I'm looking at one. Healthy HW has no particles or "dust". The mycelium will be like stringy cotton (white) with maybe some flecks of purple (spores) depending on how concentrated the spore solution you used was. Contaminants invariably create a fine "dust" that will sit on the bottom and kick up into a cloud with very little agitation. Contaminants will also severely stunt the growth of mycelium as well. IMO HW is a very "safe" tek and really only contams when the syringe is contamed or you let the HW see open air or your doing something plain WRONG in the preparation. good luck.
