Oyster Karo to spawn
    #1873837 - 09/02/03 12:37 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Following a DeanofMean post I dropped Oyster pieces into peroxide & then Karo.
Besides the kayro getting cloudy there is a halo of growth around the pieces, so I'm hoping things are cool. Yea, it's hard to see the halo in the pic.
I want to make some spawn from this, what would be the best grain to use?
Any other tips or insights would be appreciated too! :smile:

Hi there!
You could use rye, millet or popcorn. Basically, many grains are good for making spawn.
Also, be carefull with your liquid inoculum! Test it before on one or two jars before inoculating dozens of other jars. The reason behind this is that your solution could be contaminated (it's difficult to see bacteria and mold :wink:)
By the way, shake the jar with the solution in order to spread out the mycelium evenly! (next time put a small piece of glass inside)

Anyways, good luck with your solution and keep us posted about it!
There is a gourmet forum for this too, you might want to check it out sometimes  :grin:

Thanks Mushmushi, my local heath food doesn't have rye, but they have millet & popcorn.

I appreciate the testing tip. I'm a newbie and was surprised to see it grow at all, but since it is ... I'm gonna go for it!  :smile:

I've checked out the gourmet forum and posted it here as there is a lot of karo talk.

You were totally right and saved me a lot of effort with your tip.
A few days after injecting 3 popcorn jars I see green spots mixed with the white.
I did the 4th jar as control and there are no contams, so it is not the jars. I reused a syringe, so I emptied this one and cleaned it well with h202 and flushed with boiling water before reusing.

Before recycling these jars I will soak them in chlorine bleach & water for a few hours.

I will try this again, with more sterile tech.
