Vanilla Karo
    #2004908 - 10/13/03 12:26 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I used vanilla Karo to aid in germination of spores on rye grain. It has been about a week and a half and I have only noticed growth in one jar, barely. I inoc 12 pint jars. Maybe it is the vanilla that is the problem. I took proper precautions for sterility. This is not my first grow but my first time with vanilla Karo. :thumbdown:

Most flavor compounds used in food today are alcohol based, I could see how it could have a detrimental effect on colonization.

or maybe not??? :confused:

Generic corn syrup with real vanilla was used to grow some mycelium -- hit up some wbs with it and you could see it growing everywhere in a day and a half! Wow.

there is not any alcohol in karo so that is not your prob. back before i learned the karo liquid myc tek. i tried to shoot some grain with spore solution and it took a long time to get going. where liquid myc takes off really quick.

maybe just give it some more time, and then next time use liquid myc or do a g2g transfer.

good luck

the vanilla should not give you a problem.

No, I didnt use liquid mycelium. I only made my spore syringe with boiled water and boiled Karo. And yes, I did let the water cool before mixing the syringe.
I dont know what the problem is. This is the longest it has ever gone with without seeing any sign of mycelular growth. And 12 jars? I soaked the grain in distilled water before boiling. So it could be the water. But all distilled means is boiling the water until it evaporates then recondensing it into liquid. And that evens out the pH naturally. I have no clue.  :confused:
