breaking up mycelium in karo
    #2250987 - 01/18/04 07:15 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I did the karo tek a week ago. Now there are big bunches of mycelium. I do not know how to break it up so i can suck it up with the syringe. When i try to now it just gets all clogged in the syringe. How do i break up the big balls of mycelium?

No, H2O2 will not break it up . Glass does a good job . However I have found that a baby bottle does the best job as you have an self sealing injection port , and you can shake the shit outta the jar n that breaks up the mycelium very well . But using your syringe and needle by gettin some sterile water and shooting into the jar and drawing back out will break up the mycelium well , might take a few times of drawing back and reinjecting into the broth .

you don't have to break it up. it works better if you just suck it into the syringe to innoculate. that way you get more myc and less karo water in the syringe. it makes a huge diff. Adding glass is a bad idea, IMHO it is not at all needed and gets in the way of a needle trying to precisely suck up peices of floating myc.

adding a few CC's of H202 will increase myc growth and keep down contams, but will not break up the myc.
