Dextrose Question
    #3226563 - 10/07/04 10:21 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Would it be beneficial to add a little dextrose to the water that I mix my BRF/verm with to make colonization faster?

It could break down or carmilize after a long PC but it might not. It also might help contams. You can try it and see but don't waste much on it, only do a few jars and I wouldnt if you are limited on spores. I would just add dextrose to water, sterilize it, add spores and let it germinate. Then suck up some liquid culture and use that in jars. That WILL make colonization faster (could be twice as faster or faster). Look areound for honey water teks, karo teks, liquid mycelium. Its all the same basically just sugar in water which lets your spores germinate and gives all your jars a head start. The culture will take a little to make and so your first jars will take about normal (or slightly longer) time but liquid cultures can be used over and over again so your jars after that will all be lightning fast.
