corn syrup for liquid myc
    #3367049 - 11/16/04 01:03 AM (13 years, 8 days ago)

can you use regular corn syrup or any kind instead of karo to make liquid myc? I got some corn syrup but its not light corn syrup, would this be ok to use?

it doesn't need to be karo brand. but i think it has to be light. maybe thats so you can see the myc better and contams, maybe a more important reason.

I used brown sugar karo cuz they didn't have light and it seems to be workin fine. I've also had success with honey as well.

Yeah, there's no real reason why you can't use a darker syrup.. even molasses.. It's just harder to see when you have contams or not.

so what is this about. you are talking about liquid cultures right.

That is just distilled water and the dxtrose right or is there something else that needs to be added.

I wanna try the liquid method.

use whatever the fU** you want man. I mean if you have a basic understanding how LC's work then you will know what you can and can't use. As long as you PC it a little bit it will be sterile and work well. I have used honey and Karo and had success with both. Honestly i liked the results i got from honey better than Karo allthough Karo is clear and honey is not. It just seemed that I get a thicker myc cloud from honey than karo.
