Liquid Culture Tips
    #3305705 - 11/01/04 06:23 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

What tips or tricks has everyone found to work well for them in their experiences making liquid mycelium cultures(either karo or honey)?

I don't have any tips; but the method I used from scatmanrav works great. Use a 1/2 pint jar. Poke 1 hole in the center and place a piece of tyvek over it. Fill a 1/2 pint jar with 100ml of water and 1 tablespoon of Karo. Then PC for 15 minutes (only!) at 15psi. Let cool and inoculate with your favorite spore solution and then place a band-aid over the inoculate hole and incubate at 84-86F for about 10 days. That's all there is to it. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply, Money. I've always used polyfill or filter discs. Never used tyvek before. I've always seen a lot of people talking about it on here though. You usually get it from the Post Office?

hmm i oust the working area before cooking,i then lysol the inside of my jars out and lids. i then keep everyhting on paper plates before cooking. i boiled my jars for 35 minutes low temp. i had tvek under lid with coffee filters on top with foil..i trim up the cofee filters so they don't just soak up a bunch of excess water. i have my jars in a cabinet with a dresser 2 heating pads,1 is under the jars with a towel between low setting then another is against the cabinet wall for extra heat in the area. temps stay at 84 to 86 last couple times checking. i also have my jars in a insulted bag for cold hot drinks food forgot to mention it retains heat

well consider your situation with ordering spores my friend.i could careless about anything else that is or is not. eruope may have more choices for drugs of choice ot be legal but my friend america is the freedom of all the world..so we have stupid laws that say we can't have this nor that..thats ok they can't stop me..from my freedom of choice so in reality we all have freedom .just some have to be careful about the choices they make..

your spore problem was only thing i assumed to be related to living in eruope as being shitty at times. i would love to go to the uk..buy up some vinyl hit some clubs..but hey my karo jars i can see the beginings of growth at the bottoms i can see white patches of like mist coming together..its going good its only been 2 days now..this is its 3rd day ..

Ordering spores? no problem.

No usa is not the country of freedom as you say. But very off topic so I wont discuss it here.
