Sterility, Pearl Millet, Honey Jar
    #2042325 - 10/25/03 05:40 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Let's see if one jar is de facto doomed.
Attempt:
Pint jar- 400ml water, 30ml honey, 1 cc cube (let sit for ~8 days)
2 Qt. jars- 7 ozs. Pearl Millet each + 5.6 ozs. water (pc'ed 75 min.)
(also: pinch of gypsum in each jar)

I put two hole in the lids and used polyfil as "plugs"...Spent 20 damn minutes trying to get some of the mycelia into syringe... Think enough for one jar was obtained and fired it...At this point said to hell with it, fired up oven, sat my stuff out on oven door, opened honey jar, drained off fluid and then opened Pear Millet and dumped a clump in, closed it back fast and tight...The rest of the mycelia was dumped.

Now, from everything I've read, the second jar is doomed. It's no big deal really but I will be interested to see.

Yup, a glorious blue green mold is growing away. Doomed, indeed...The jar I used the syringe to put the mycelia onto the millet seems ok, at least nothing bad.

I need to figure out a method of getting the mycelia from the honey jar onto the millet, drawing it up through the syringe isn't cutting it. I'm going to build an active glove box today, for future use- the immediate future.

put a couple of glass shards in the honey water to help shaking, or you can draw up a syringe full of honey water and squirt it back into the jar .
in either case, mix it up good till it looks murky .there should be plenty of mycelium in it . you don't need alot of big visible pieces .
shake syringe between injections .
