Honey Water Tek help
    #2386237 - 02/28/04 10:34 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, a FOAF tried doing the Honey Water Tek. This FOAF used a pint jar with a tablespoon of organic honey and nuked it in the microwave for 5 minutes. This FOAF let it come to room temp and then I added 1cc of spore solution. After this FOAF started seeing floating white thingys, this FOAF added about 1cc of h2O2. It has been a week and this is what it looks like.

There are tiny little white things all over the jar. Alot of them settle at the bottom and theres a good amount floating around in the middle. There is one much bigger dustball looking puff. It has been kept in 80ish degree incubator.

Basically, this FOAF is wondering if this is what this FOAF is supposed to be looking at and if it is ready for use.

yeah... thats what he is looking for and it's a safe bet to use it... make sure he follows sterile procedures with every thing... refridgeration will allow it to keep longer

Many thanks. Should he refridgerate now? Or keep it in the incubator for a lil longer?

depends on how long it has been incubating for...from what i know it can survive up to 3-6 months with no refridgeration...but if you want to keep it longer, Refridging now is fine.

Its hard to be clean enough with this method. Its actually one of the hardest things to get right. I abandoned this method some time ago.
If I had to use this tek, I wouldn't wait more than a week to inoc and then I would throw away the left over solution.

Test your sterile procedure before you go inocing a shit load of jars. Contams can be hard to spot so its kinda hit or miss. Especially if you cant trust the spore syringe, which you cant. I mean liquids are different. One little contam can swirl around and spread like crazy.

it is contammed...i've had this happen with honey water before...the floaty things that swirl are the wax...the dustball that you mention in the middle is some sort of bacteria...i wouldn't use it for anything. with honey water all you should see is chunky white mycelium...no small particulate matter. the mycelium wont be in a huge clump... it'll be somewhat disperssed. if you want a pic of a honey jar that's fine, i'lll show you one...if you want to see one that's contammed i can show you that as well, just let me know.
