2 Karo Tek questions
    #2215109 - 01/02/04 03:26 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

A foaf just innoculated 6 1/2 pts(PF) and for giggles she
decided to try a Karo jar. 1/2pt Kerr,1TBSP Karo
and H2O to just below the threads on the jar. Plastic
lid with small hole covered with electrical tape and
broken glass in the jar. Pinhole in the tape and a coffee
filter over the top. She cleaned the microwave with
bleach water and nuked for 1 min on high then waited
5 mins. Repeated 2 more times. Moved to still air glovebox
when cool enough to handle and waited until cold and
shot with 1cc of Ralphsters EQ. Her idea was that if the
BRF jars got contaminated she would have some mycelium
to try again.

1) Was this a ok procedure?
2) If she were to incubate until colonization began
    and then stored in a ziplock in the fridge, how long
    do you folks think it would be viable?

Thanks for the help          :cool:

>And if you get a chance do some BRF jars for the hell of it with that karo water. Colonization is waaaaaay faster than spore innoc

Thats her idea even if the first set of BRF jars goes fine. She
needs extra syringes/needles tho.

I think she messed up with the TBSP of Karo
vs using just a TSP. The BRF jars are doing well
but the Karo shows no sign of anything.  :frown:

As far as I know it's identical but honey has
wax and other thiungs which can cloud up the
jar and make it difficult to see whats going on.
She checked her karo jar today and saw that there
was a "cloud" of wispy white material around what
appears to be a clump of spores.

sounds like you're well on your way with the karo. if you want more syringes look at www.reliabledental.com. they have alot of useful stuff. be profesional when you're dealing with them though.

let it be know, there is a fountain that was not made by the hands of men.
