Karo Syrup: Microwave style!
    #1946621 - 09/24/03 02:19 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Ok so this is a hypothetical adventure in mycology!

So my dog decides one day that he wants to make liquid mycellium innoculant...but he doesnt have a pressure cooker! *gasp* whatever will he do?

So, he went out to the store and bought a box of 12 125ml normal mouth canning jars, then a box of PLASTIC canning container lids. (wierd how there are 12 jars, yet 8 lids in a box....oh well) He then goes and gets a drill, and a small size drill bit, and drills holes into the center of each plastic cap. Then takes 100ml of warm water and dissolves 2tsp of white corn syrup into it for each jar. Then drops some 2cm square pieces of glass (he bought a dollar store wine glass, put it in a bag and smacked it with his shoe) into the jars, so that when the mycellium grows, he can shake the jars, and the glass will slice up the mycellium, allowing for easier mycellium suction into the syringes. He then caps the jars and places them 4 at a time into a microwave...on high for 5 mins. *BEEP BEEP BEEEEEP* While the jars are still hot and in the microwave, he takes surgical fabric tape and covers each of the holes in the lids. Bingo Bango, done like dinner, now once the jars cool overnight, he will take a pre-made spore syringe and innoculate the jars through the fabric tape (after proper sterilization of the needle of course) then recover innoc hole with more surgical fabric tape. Incubate @ 80degrees or so and in a few days he should see a little ball of white fuzz forming around some of the balck spore specks. Watch for contams and have a great day. Awsome way to turn 2ml's of spore sryinge into one or two full syringes of liquid mycellium...if not more!

Hope this helps some people out...if this has been posted before i do apologise, this is just an idea My dog had tonight and wanted to share it with the community!

Enjoy, and thanks for all your guys/gals help in the past present and future.

I pc'd some water/karo last night using a tek brought to my attention by MycoCakeEater. It calls for 1 teaspoon karo/100mL water. By accident I put 2 teaspoons karo/100mL water. I dunno, just had 2 stuck in my head. I was just curious if its still ok, since that is what you're "dog" is calling for? Has your dog tried this already and how did it turn out if so? Thanks

thats funny i use significantly more karo than you
i started out using 1 tablespoon, or 3 teaspoons
but as an experiment increased the amount to 2 tablespoons
as opposed to your two teaspoons
i saw significantly increased myc growth
