old syringe
    #2698811 - 05/18/04 11:55 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I have about 1cc left in a syringe alittle over a year old. It was kept in a cool dark place (not refrigerated) inside the ziplock bag it came in. Think it's still good?

For sure.  If it's bad you lose either way but if it's good you will gain a whole bunch. :laugh:

Good to hear!

I prepared for the honey tek acouple hours ago... letting the jar cool over night.

Any input on if the karo tek is better/worse than honey tek?

Karo is reasonably clear, where as honey is not (can make spotting contams harder). In addition, honey has a propensity to caramelise, esp. yellow box eucalyptus honey (never had any joy with that). My fav is dextrose, that's crystal clear and never caramelises...if I have any left from brewing beer. :smile:

Not only that but honey has it's own native microflora of bacteria that you need to kill off without caramelizing the sugar.

^Yea steam cooked the honey/water mix. I just used a big pot half filled with water and set the jar in the pot and let the steam to the work, also used some pretty good honey :smile: . I didnt see any carmalization when i took it out and hopefully the 45 minutes it was steaming is enough to kill all contams. Oh well I injected last night and we shall see soon enough if i contamed anything. No big deal anyway, was just 1cc from an old syringe just lying around.

Here's what I did:
Took a new 1/2 pint jar ans punched a hole on the middle
Took a gob of silicone and covered the hole and let it dry
Nuked the jar with karo/water for 5 mins with some saran wrap over it with a littl corner lifted up for steam to release
Immediatly screwed the lid on over the saran wrap when it was done.  It was hot as hell
Let it cool, flamed the needle and injected 1 CC of solution through the silicone hole
Put it in my incubator
:smile:
