no luck with my karo water
    #2030508 - 10/21/03 11:22 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I recently tried to make the karo water for the first time and i had very little luck. After about three weeks i was only getting very very small specks oy mycellium(sp). I am pretty sure i found the problem though. I was butting the karo water in a air tight tupperware container and putting it into my incubator. the bad part is that at the time i didn't have any way to tell the temp. in the container so i was uh well kinda guessing. well long story short i just got a therm. and well low and behold the temp inside the box was between 98 and 100.....whoops :sun:. so i am trying it again with the right temp now 83-85 (no light) wish me luck. any suggestions or comments are always welcome

Use dextrose instead of Karo, it works much better.

It is sold as "dextrose". I got mine from the homebrew section of my local supermarket, however this may vary so just ask an assistant. Karo seems to be the way to go for a lot of people since it is so widely available but on the flipside it has alot of waxes and other nasties you don't want. If you ever feel like upgrading, use dextrose. I assure you that you won't be disappointed.
