New Tek idea
    #3203664 - 10/01/04 01:10 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Alright, my homie has not tried this yet, but will soon. Would like some opionons and suggestions before my homie does try it.

So the honey tek works fairly good and all but one of my brethern was pasterizing some straw the other day. Once he was done he took out the straw and started dumping the leftover water from the pot in the drain. When all the sudden an idea hit him like some flying horse shit!

What if he took a 1/2 pint jar filled it with the leftover water and then PCed the jar with straw water and then innoculated it with spores when it cooled down. And used it for their myc. culture, instead of the karo tek or the honey tek.

What do you think? Some idea, somebody probably has thought of it already but u can't beat the newbie for thinking of it!

If he already has it it wouldn't really be much of a hassle IMO It's nutes either way and should work, myc may be a little less aggressive but who knows? GL

Hyphae,
Yeah it's not like he would pasterize straw just for that purpose, kind of a 2 in 1 deal.

Since you seem so knowledgeable is it necssary to sterlize or would the pasterization be sufficient? A real plus if it can fight off some contams.

Also would it not be better if the myc. was aggressive?

Definitely sterilize, It's always better to be safe than sorry when working with sterile culture :wink: More aggressive is always nice! :laugh:

A similar idea has been tried before. Someone over on Mycotopia perhaps uses organic rice as a base and boils that up, strains off the water and injects it. Works fine evidently, but the beauty of the karo/dextrose tech is that the solution is clear so you can see the mycelia form and keep an eye on any contamination. If the solution is cloudy, you lose that ability. That's why the karo tech is THE tech (btw. use dextrose instead of karo if you can - it doesn't caramelize and leaves the solution perfectly clear).
