Too much LME. That's why it's dark.

5g:1liter would be pleeenty. Only pc for 15-20min. It's a liquid. Sterilization is easy.

I double checked since it's 7am and I'm high as f...

All my lme broths are 1g per 500, 2g per liter, 4grams per 2liter.

That's what I use and imo it's a head scratcher why people use higher ratios. Highest I ever used was 5g per 500 and it was like inoculating with cottage cheese(texture wise)

:laugh2:

This is exactly why I was asking and why  got the % mixed up, I had a strong memory of putting in just grams not tens of grams in.. should still work, I like cottage cheese :laugh:

Agreed. Higher ratios only make things more cloudy. Speed of colonization in the liquid is pretty much the same with high or low ratios. I've always done 0.1 to 0.2% strength and decided to try higher ratios for a month to see if that would increase the speed on grains, but I didn't notice any difference, contrary to what I thought I'd find, because it would kinda make sense "more nutes = more mycelial mass = faster colonization on grains". Not the case IME.
