Mycelium-only tek, Please Help!
    #310114 - 05/05/01 08:05 PM (16 years, 3 months ago)

Hey there guys, Im attempting to cultivate the mycelium only using organic rye kernels and self-made spore syringes. Things have not been going too smoothly. After several weeks only 2 of 10 jars showing colonization....the question is: Since I *plan* to consume the mycelium (in a half hour!), how, if possible, could i verify that it IS mycelium and not cob-web mold....i beleive i consumed the latter last week....gave a dull headache only, thankfully. Help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Have a pleasant eve.

i wouldn't eat any mycelium unless your substrate is fully colonized... if you want an easy way to grow some "edible" cakes check out the 9er tek (just brown rice with verm top layer for sterility) or instead of the brown rice you can use barley , but not flatened barley or anything ...it's been colonizing for aFOAF faster than the brown rice .. but maybe it's just his luck .. anyway when you do this you have a solid cake of mycelium...no nasty vermiculite to eat... well good luck and peace

go fish

You could follow Adam Gottlieb's liquid agar tek. In that, you grow mycelium in this shakeable liquid agar suspension. To harvest, you just strain/filter it.

He gives these two agar formulas in the book.

Malt Extract Agar
20 grams malt extract
100 mg potassium phosphate dibasic (K2HPO4)
100 mg calcium carbonate
9.5 grams agar
1 L distilled water

Potato Dextrose Yeast Agar
250 grams of washed, unpeeled potatoes
10 grams dextrose
1.5 grams yeast
15 grams agar

Slice potatoes 1/8 inch thick
Rinse slices clean in cool tap water
Final rinse with distilled water
Cook in distilled water until tender
Strain and set aside cooking water
Rinse potatoes with distilled water
Retain rinse water, discard potatoes
Add distilled water to make 1 litre
Bring liquid to slow boil
Add dry ingredients

Well, agar isn't shakeable. It's a solid... Just try to make some honey water.. One teaspoon of honey per half pint of water.

If you put enough water in it is.

The honey technique you suggested may not have the nutrients to support a worthwhile harvest.
