Suitably impressed with honey
    #1865002 - 08/30/03 05:37 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

As I had run out of dextrose, I decided to again try honey. Prior attempts resulted in a caramelized mess. This time, just 15 minutes PC @ 15psi with 1 table spoon of honey to 100ml water. Now 4 days later, incubated at 30C and the growth from spore inoculation on honey sure beats the pants on dextrose. I'll go honey from now on.

The only disadvantage with honey is the amber colour (Australian honey is always dark) so the solution is a far cry from the clarity of dextrose, thus potential contams will be harder to spot. But I can't complain on the pace. :smile:

The dark specs in the mycelium are flakes (for want of a better wording) off a print. Broken glass included, makes chopping it up for syringe draw easier (one of nan's tips). 

Convert Metric and Imperial.

cool story..
Yeah for me I always use powder honey crystals because I don't like working with honey because it's such a mess.The honey tek is very good becuase you can strech out your syringes and when you make syringes you don't have to wait for the spores to germinate and fine a good match which save you days

i'm glad that honey worked out ok for you

Welcome to my world!
