Revolutionary Liquid culture question/idea.
    #1562884 - 05/20/03 02:29 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

This kid i kind of know decided he was cool enough to try and do liquid culture before his first cakes had colonized, and so far it's going ok. He was thinking about it, and if you can grow mycelium in jars with honey water, this means theoretically that the mycelium isn't getting any oxygen at all. How is it possible then to add too much water to your substrate, if the mycelium can't drown?
The other interesting part is then why can't you add next to 100% of the water in your jars as honey/mycelium solution? Imagine how fast colonization would occur if you used like...4cc or so, per jar, of liquid mycelium, in a matter of days your cakes could be fully colonized. And also, you could use honey water in addition to, or instead of brown rice flower as a nutrient for the mycelium, theoretically that is. Anyone ever try this or know why it wouldn't work?

too much moisture can prevent colonization
from occuring and generally creates an
environment that bacteria will thrive in.

there is a dry tek out there, search by username
for WakingUpLate, he had a thread where he
created cakes with less water, and pc'd them,
then innoculated the cakes with more spore
solution than usual (any liquid innoculant would
also likely work well).

because of the huge increase in innoculant, the
cakes did colonize considerably faster if I remember
correctly.

the only problem with liquid innoculants is that they
can contam fairly easily and in such a manner that
you usually don't know that it's bad until you've
actually used the solution. generous amounts of h2o2
are key to being successful with LI's.

good luck.
