Well, it's said that honey contains more impurities, so using Karo or other clear corn syrups is better. Even best is any form of pure sucrose (which I think is available via brewing supplies companies)

As for the tek - as I was told by starter:

- mix one tablespoon karo/honey with 100ml water and put it in the PC for 15 minutes at 15 psi. Be sure to put a small piece of broken glass in with it to help break the mycelium up.
- after the mixture cools shoot it up with some spores.
- incubate the sucker for around a week
- shake it up to break up the mycelium
- suck it into a spore syringe

By "I", I of course mean a good friend of mine who happens to live in the fine city of Amsterdam. "I" is just so less awkward.

use less water...i doubt the problem lies in how you prepare the grains..but lately i have found...if i do a batch of test jars..and see measure out how much water i put in each jar..then label the jar...pressure cook them..and see which jar is moist..but not wet...

you can tell because the grain should be able to be shook..and the kernels should not be broken...there should be any excess water with in the jar..

i usually do a test..

start from 70 cc's of water..and work your way up to 220 cc's...

mark the jars..pressure cook..and then check each jar, then you tell which jar..looks like it has the proper water amount...everyone is gonna have different types of grains and different formulas to cook with..so basically you have to figure out what works for you...then run off the formula you come up with hope i helped yah
