Honey mycelium tek question!!
    #3246168 - 10/12/04 03:47 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I put some spores in a jar with some honey mixed with water about a week ago and they are kept warm. But the tek says it should look milky colored but I'm not seeing that. What I am seeing is the spores still brown, laying at the bottom of the jar. Though the only process I have gotten is that they are actually visable now. There is no white cloudy water for me, do you think its ready to go?

No, it wont ready be until you see big thick clouds of mycelium. Shake them once a day to get some air in the water and that will help. Growth might be slower if not kept at optimum so just keep waiting. I hope you sterilized the honey water first? If not I hope it comes out clean. Good luck.

When I shake it I swirl them in one direction and then quickly in the other back and forth. You need to really disturb the surface of the water to diffuse it in so if your not swirling hard, swirl harder but you don't have to actually shake them.

You could have carmelized the honey, which would be the reason nothing is happening.

I had growth in 2 of 2 carmalized jars. Honey that was PCed for just over an hour at 15 PSI. Not to say it might not grow sometimes..

i just boiled some water in a kettle, poured it into a glass, dropped a teaspoon or two of honey in and covered in with cling film (saran wrap to the yanks!) and after letting it cool i squirted in some old spores.

Now i have large lumps of mycelium at the bottom of the glass and when i swirl it round they all spin around like sheep in a tornado.

working with honey tek myself right now. the first batch managed to become contaminated, but the second batch worked like a charm. i did notice that it took about 10 days to see the first signs of growth, and more than 21 days to get a large amount of mycelium. this is most likely due to non-optimal temp. give it some time. also, there is the chance that you did not add enough honey. i have found that adding a little more than what the tek calls for helps.
