liquid mycelium color
    #2519133 - 04/02/04 03:49 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I don't know if this should be normal or not ... I made some honey+water mix and nuked to sterilize ( everything was a orangy-brown color becose of the honey , the mycelium too , but i thought its becose of the solution ) ... Than i added some spores in this and i let it like that for 2 weeks , now i soaked the mycelium in few syringes ... now i have syringes full of this , but the mycelium has still this orangy color ... If this realy is the mycelium , why is it such color ?

My guess is that i got some caramelized sugar , but this shit showed later ... What is this shit ? :mad2:

Thanx  :sad:

not sure about that one, thats why i like karo better
little more clear, little easier to see whats going on.

how long did you let it nuke?
more specifically, how long did you let it stay at full boil?

i nuked it one minute and then let stay 5 minutes , and 3 times like that ... The power was high , at about 700 W .

I didn't check how long it boiled , i just let it nuke and cleaned up my lab ..

i asked about how long it boiled, because from my knowledge of karo, it only needs boiled for 35 seconds, roughly 2 and a half min in my microwave. sounds like yours wouldnt be far from that, but i dunno, never used it. could always try it on some test jars...wish i could help =/

I dont know why people use liquid innoculums - they are by far the hardest mediums to keep sterile - and unlike agar where the contaminant can be isolated out, they spread through the whole liquid as quick as you can sneeze...
Mycelium is white - if its a different colour to the honey originally put in, then its a contaminant.
