Karo culture
    #3051712 - 08/26/04 03:34 AM (16 years, 6 months ago)

Well, around the beginning of this month, three wide mouth pints were filled with 100ml water and 2tsp of water each and pc'd at 15psi for 20 minutes. Previously, a random microwave karo tek was used with a small rubbermade type container. Anyway, the three pints turned out to be slightly yellow and after doing more research I found out they were caramelized. The small rubbermaid container was forgotten about until today, when it was discovered to have a very large, healthy glob of mycelium inside. The same 100ml to 2tsp of karo ratio was used for the smaller rubbermaid container. It did have a very small, almost unoticable speck floating on the top, which could possibly be a contam of some sort, or just something that was inside when sterilized. Three more pint jars were filled with 100ml of water and only 1tsp of karo was used this time. It was made certain that these jars were well off the bottom of the PC this time and they turned out perfectly clear when finished. Two empty syringes were then sterilized and the mycelium was transferred into the 3 new jars (100ml water to 1tsp karo) and also the original 3 jars with the slight yellow tinge. I'll be updating with pics as soon as I can. In the meantime, popcorn is being soaked, and will be sterilized sometime soon, and hopefully one of these karo jars will produce some nice mycelium to use for innoculation.

I have been using the kero kek for over a year with great success. Just today I started a F+ liquid solution. It really spreads one syringe out well.

Kero to WBS

WBS to Pasturized poo/swraw

VERM/Peat Moss/Lime to casing

Casing To ShroomS... lots of shrooms :wink:

All in 3 weeks with the help of incubator/cold shock
