First Karo jars...got some questions
    #3151297 - 09/18/04 05:04 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, so I nocc'd three karo jars (PESA, B+, and GT) three days ago. So far there are stringy (looks like lint) growth in the jars. The PESA jar has two very small "lint" ball growths. The other two don't have any growth clusters, just stringy separated growths. The water is clear, not cloudy. No apparent contams or out of the ordinary growths on surface or in solution (Tyvek rocks!).

Does this sound like it's working?

Should I switch to agar or just hang in there and let these jars grow?
How much faster is agar? I don't mind the extra procedures, just want to get things rolling faster.

Here were my procedures:

- 1/2 pint jar filled half way with bottled water + 1 tsp Karo PC'd for 15 min @ 15 psi
- One hole on lid with Tyvek filter on top
- Nocc'd in a glove box, lysol'ed to hell, heat sterilized needle, etc.
- Jars wrapped in foil and placed inside a rubbermaid container and heated with a heat pad. Temps fluctuate between 75F and 86F, average temp is in the low 80s.
- I unwrap and check these jars everyday for progress. Is this somehow "disturbing" their growth?

Thanks!

Liquid innoc. is the fastest/hottest shit out there! Sounds to me like it's right on schedule! Don't forget to shake them babies to keep that myc form clumping too much. I let Karo go 2wks. usually :wink: but then it's time to rock-n-roll!!!!!! :laugh:
