Karo-Water During Popcorn Boil Prep
    #1891863 - 09/07/03 09:28 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I was just pondering an idea...What would happen if you boiled your popcorn in Karo-water(just a little Karo) besides just make it really sticky? Wouldn't this encourage quicker colonization of the grain? I figure the mycelia would truly enjoy the extra sugary nutrition already boiled into the substrate. What would be some drawbacks or benefits, if any, to doing this? Also I don't remember the site I was visiting but I saw this brownish liquid in a jar that was for sale. They claimed it improved colonization speed dramatically and also encouraged larger yields. Anyone seen this if so what do you think it is?

my dog has used honey in making wbs(millet) substrate he just ads 1/2 cup hot distilled water per pint jar stirs in 1/2 teaspoon organic honey then adds 2/3 cup birdseed and a pinch of gypsum then pc's in the normal manner he usuaLLY has pretty good results i would think karo would work good too

would it not carmelize at the longer pc'ing time needed for popcorn.

i know that i once threw in a karo jar with my pf tek jars (cooked 60 min) and ended up with a brown syrup. had to throw out and start over. this time just cooking for 25 min. came out fine.

i have no exp in this area, it just seems pop works fine on its own. :crazy:

I agree. It seems it could make it perform somewhat better. As long as it doesn't hurt the substrate in any way, it could be done. Some with, some without to measure the actual benefits. Thanks for reassuring me of my idea. I thought I would sound silly even thinking about doing something that I'd never heard of anyone experimenting with before. So my theory could be partially correct. Good to Know  :wink:
