honey tek - is this what im looking for?
    #3150961 - 09/18/04 06:33 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i made some honey jars a week ago, and there was some small brown chunks
in the resulting solution (organic honey). Now there is a white fuzz
around the chunks, is this the mycelium?

The white is more than likely mycellium, but its hard to say. Were they there after sterilization, before innoculation? How concentrated was the spore solution you put in it. Its possible that those brown chunks were clumps of spores. But the way you describe makes it sound kinda fishy.

I am thinking the brownish chunks are proteins and sugars from the honey, during sterilization the heat makes some of the honey break down and it turns to a sort of heavier junk which sinks to the bottom and is not bad for anything.

But, without seeing some pics that is just a guess. The white fuzzing does sound like happy mycelium though.

i got a pic today

the white fuzz grew into a blob which took over the brown chunks.
yes, the brown was there after pcing. most likely its protien.
it looks like the blob is some healthy myc, yah?
