Is caramelization bad in karo?
    #1998258 - 10/10/03 07:38 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I just PCed my jars, and they liquid is light caramel in color. Why should this affect the formation of mycellium though?

slows growth. KAro is cheap. Time is ample. Just run em through again for 45 min.

PC karo water for less time,15-20 minutes should be ample.any more time and you'll hit the same problem.

just did one last week here is waht they did

1. half pint jar
2. packet of honey from mcdonalds {to cheap to go to the store}
3. seran wrap
4. microwave

fill they jar 3/4 with distilled water
put the container of honey in the jar {about a teaspoon}
then nuck it for about 6 mins and then let cool in microwave for 45 mins
and then put 2 layers of seran wrap over it and then seal it with a rubber band

let it cool for 24 hours and then injected 2cc's of gt into it ,, abotu 3 days later they have white stuff floating, they didnt cover the hole the needle made either

this worked great for them

Cool. Nice to know I can do it in the microwave. But no one has answered my question - WHY is caramelization bad?

because growth will occur or be hindered. You want to try carmelized go for it, if you get better results it will be a first but experimentation leads to new effective measures. IMHO use something that works, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

The sugar molecules have been changed and are no longer good food for myc.

I think the microwave is better than the pc for this.
My tech is similar to crayon's except for using karo.

If you've got an extra jar, inoc the carmalized one AND do it again. Double your odds.
