Malt gone bad?
    #3218971 - 10/05/04 06:06 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Does anyone know if malt can go bad? A friend used a bag that he had not used in over a year and so far 2 out of 2 jars have gone bad. On one the water turned gray a week after inoc. The other one is not clumping up, just a cloud that never settles. The first I'm sure is just a contaim, no biggie. On the second one though I am starting to wonder if the malt is breaking down to much for the myc to fully form. Both were made from karo syringes that were created by shooting karo water into a old, yet still good cake, shaking and then sucking it back up. I'm sure the age of the cake doesn't help the matter, but it is the only source left of this strain. Any help would be great. Really do not wish to buy the strain again when there is still a source, be it weak, to build from.

How else would you recommend making a syringe when you only have a old cake to work with? Shy of cutting out part of the cake, which would have a much greater chance of contamination, I can not think of any other good way that would not risk loosing the only sample left. The cake could of course be birthed with the hope that after all this time it would take off and produce, but that is a pretty big risk to take when from all that I have read the method that was used is supposed to work. Normally this has never been a issue, but my friend has been out of the country for several months without someone to babysit their samples.
