Liquid Cultures
    #3334582 - 11/08/04 10:26 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I used about 10% pancake syrup and 90% water, this is more syrup than the teks I have since read said to use. I'm just wondering if extra syrup would hurt the culture in some way? also: is food lion brand pancake syrup fine? I know there are lots of teks on how to do it the right way, but this is just what I had available to me at the time and I'm wondering if you experts think it will work?

I have no idea..I use 1 tablesppon per 100ml of water. I've never heard of pancake syrup being used..normally its light corn syrup (karo) or honey....

I can see what appears to be Mycelium already, but i have some concerns about contamination. Whats the best way to check if a liquid culture is contaminated?

I've used syrup before. it works. See if it smells, any funky smell means its contaimnated.

My friends myc in his honey jars is a golden color, but colonizes in the jars white. So don't let that gold color fool you.
