How's this Honey Water look? Contamed?
    #1646060 - 06/19/03 10:10 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Well, I know it?s probably hard to tell from a photograph, but I wouldn?t have a fucking clue. Here?s some pictures of my honey water, there?s little bits of gunk floating around in there, but I wouldn?t have a clue if it?s mycelium or some other contam.

The colour of the water makes it hard to tell the colour of whatever that stuff is. It did actually look quite white when I held it up to the light, but I can?t be sure. At other times it almost looks brown, but I?m not sure if that?s just because of the honey or not.

The stuff floats around really easily and slowly settles to the bottom if I don?t touch it for a long time. There?s nothing floating on the surface.

This is my first go with honey, so I wouldn?t know what?s what. Thanks for you help. :smile:

If you used honey, there's a good chance that is wax and other impurities found in honey. Also it could be caramelized sugars.

Wait a week or so, don't throw it out.

Mesq,

How do I use dextrose? (ratios, etc.) and where do I get it from?

Hmm...I noticed my honeywater having the same white flakes in it. And this was immediately after sterilisation, too! I think it's just minute pieces of wax or somesuch.

My honey water was fine after sterilisation. It's taken a few days to develop those fluffy things. I'm actually fairly confident it's mycelium.

I've used honey water before and yours looks ok.
If you don't smell ANY strange odor then it should be ok. Test it in a couple of jars, honey water often contaminates with bacteria, so it's very easy to tell if they are contaminated after 4 of 5 days after inoculation.
