did i screw up my KARO jars? UPDATE: pics
    #2923840 - 07/24/04 05:22 PM (13 years, 2 days ago)

I consider the use of KARO cultures to warrant this as advanced discussion

i innoculated a pint jar filled with ~290 kmililiters of a 1/20 honey and the rest tap water solution on the 17th. they sshow no signs of mycellinial growth. i am building an incubator later today. are they not taking because of honey content, too much solution, or not enough heat?

Update:

also, my honey kind of crystalized during the boiling. coudl the mycellinium be hiding in there?

pics:

Of the jar




THANKS

More details would help -- like, for starters, with what was it inoculated and how much time has taken place between events?

The honey didn't crystalize -- proteins denatured. Shouldn't make a difference.

it was innoculated on the 17th with a basically clear camdobian spore syringve bought from spores 101. i think it may not have started yet because it wasnt in an incubator; the jar is cool to the touch...

would the mycellinium float, or could it sink tot he bottom. if it sinks, it would be lost in the protein muck at the bottom.

well my jar of my hawaiian strain is coming along quite nicely now. but the cambodian dosnt look like its doin shit. this surpresed me, because i heard that cambodians colonize fast. i think i may have meslabeld the jars, even though i thought i had them correct. i kind of want to give the cambodian a boost injection, but i dont want to mix strains. ill see if my new incubator can help speed up the process.

You're shaking them and there's plenty of room for air (at least 70% air?)

Other than that there were really few spores or you somehow managed to kill them, taking into account you followed the right recipe.

Tap water perhaps? If you don't have an incubator made up, you can put the jar on top of the fridge towards the back (by the coils). That should get you close to the zone.

I use a seedling heating mat in a tupperwear storage container. Hasn't done me wrong yet.

i set up an incubator. the hawaiian jar is doing great, but the cambodian is being a piece of shit. if i dont see a change int he turbidity of the solution within the week, im gonna re-innoculate it. oh, if i just let them incubate for a real long time, and they grow a bunch of mycelinium, will that be bad? i figure none of the chunkswill make their' way into my syringe so i dont see a problem.

THANKS

I used 100 Ml of water and 2 teaspoons of light karo corn syrup, i did this to two half pints jars and inocculated with a few drops of a VERY old spore syringe, this syringe has two pf-tek jars currently colonizing so the spores are at least somewhat good, however, in the two jars there are floating gray fuzzies, which worries me since i thought liquid myc would look more white. ALSO, i do not know what it is but inside the fuzzies (which are more like one or two clumps of fuzz) there looks to be little pieces of crap in them, most of them have little black dots in them, i'm worried what they are or if i should let the jars continue colonizing and then inocculate jars to test if they're contamed, or should i save my time and throw them out now.

If throw them out, then why? would pictures help, i can use a digi cam.

Black crap you say? That doesn't sound very good to me. You might want to put a few pics in the contam forum. If you decide to throw them out, you might as well dump it in a shady area in your yard (preferably on some compost, if you don't have compost, stomp the shit out of a potato and dump it on that.) Who know what might happen... I never throw away suspected contams, I just throw them in my back yard.

If he pressure cooked his jars like he should have, then using tap water shouldnt make a big difference at all, IMO..
