when is honey water ready to use?
    #2535538 - 04/07/04 04:13 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

My foaf has a honey water jar that's gotten about half full if whitish wispy stuff (which I'm assuming is mycelium). At what point does he need to use this, or start worrying about it going bad?

Just my opinion, but I'd use it now, before it gets too thick to easily suck into your syringe. It can be refrigerated if needed...

youre late with the honey water. Its prolly still good as far as alive but the longer you wait the more likely you are to get bacteria. Liquid is different from PF jars in that myc will not over grow a contam but rather a contam can swirl all around and breed like crazy. This is why you should use a liquid culture as soon as you can.
As long as you can see some myc in a syringe you will get growth from every inoculation. Make sure the myc is broke up well when you inoc.

You can use plastic lids from wal-mart for your jars. They are in the same section as the jars.
TYVEC is house wrap. Its also used as envelope material at the post office so look there.
Polyfill is pillow stuffing. Look in crafts.
People use coffee filters as a dust blocker for the tops of the jars. Its for keeping the dust off while allowing for gas exchange.

Just to clarify here - when my foaf sucks honey water into the syringe, he should be sure to get the mycelium floaties, right? He's never worked with liquid culture before.

whats the best jar/device to do the honeytek in, and how long should you pc for? so it doesnt carmel , a foaf gets carmel at 10psi for 25-30mins.
