What's this chunky BS?!
    #1658499 - 06/24/03 02:46 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I was cooking some malt today... it's hop flavored "light malt" its a pain in the ass to work with. I mixed it into some water, and it has these chunks... it looks like carmelized sugar but the thing is this was before i pressure cooked it or anything like that. WTF is it? Will it still work to cultivate mycelium with this chunky white shit in it?

That stuff is highly hygroscopic. Sounds like it is just clumped together. Some heat and a vigorous shake/stir and it should be fine.

Lemunhed,
Are you sure your solution is not oversaturated? What is the percentage by weight? I highly suggest using solidified rice syrup solids (high maltose if available) which you can also get at your brewers supply. I posted this tek last night, if you have not seen it already take a look:

It is concerned with brothing mycelium cultivation techniques.

Yeah i have been looking for dextrose and shit (i saw your tek it looks like its kick ass) but i can't find it anywhere. I live in Maine and people don't know WTF dextrose is up here. I have scoured every location within probably .... 40 or 50 miles and no where has it! No brew stores, nothin.

A homebrew supply store has alot of stuff shroomers can use... Dextrose, light malt extract, Calcium Carbonate... so try one of them out... I find Malt is crap for liquid mycelium... I use dextrose
