An important reminder about the karo tek.
    #2375745 - 02/25/04 12:07 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

For those thinking about doing the karo tek, please learn from afoaf's mistake. Don't forget to put the lid on loose, and upside-down before you PC it.

Afoaf used silicone to seal the holes, and put the lid on with the rubber seal down. After cooling, he went to inject the first jar and as soon as he got the needle past the silicone, the entire syringe emptied into the jar in about 1.2 seconds. He thinks it'll still grow, but he wasted a hell of a lot of spores.

Hope this helps.

Actually, it grew quite well! The solution was ready within a week, and it was used to innoculate pf-style millet flour 1/2 pints. I cased 12 1/2 pints and got about an ounce and a half from the first flush, but it was contaminated so there was no second flush. Thanks for asking!

Yeah, I PC'ed them, but only for twenty minutes.  I wasn't too pissed because one syringe isn't a lot of spore solution in my particular situation.  It colinized faster than any jar I've done since. :wink:
