first jars
    #2588032 - 04/21/04 08:58 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I know you can't see these all too well but thier my first,
WBS,,, I have a few BRF as well.. They showed a few signs of
purple... I forgot to shave the covers,, after I drilled them,,
the metal shavings pierced the tyvek and now they show signs
of purple....

Has anyone ever sprayed a 20% alcohol solution on mycelium??/
If so did it turn a shade of purple??? Just wondering as i sprayed my alcohol solution liberally ever time I opened my incubator....

I know it's most likely a contam.... Thanks for any advice.......

I don't know if alcohol is the best solution to use. It's pretty strong even mixed with water because alcohol doesn't dilute in water at all. H2O2 would be a much better solution for your cakes

Well out of 12 half pints of WBS.. I know some feel half pints are a waste for WBS... That's all I had... Four are still healthy and viable..

3 didn't colonise..
4 were lost to neurospora..sp
2 pint BRF jars were also lost to neurospora...

I will be casing the 4 viable WBS this week..
With coir/verm and a touch of pasturised horse poo....

This is alot harder to do than it seems... I guess you just gotta keep at it... regards nofindum...

Can I ask you a question?

If alcohol doesnt dilute in water-Then what is the other ingredients in 70% isopropyl alcohol,90% isopropyl alcohol???

I do believe that is water!

Thank you! :thumbup: :cool:

LOL duh me, I was thinking about freakin cooking oil for some reason lol, which probably would be a bad idea for a cake so don't try that lol. But thank you for pointing out my mistake doc.
