Kero Q
    #3427832 - 11/30/04 03:10 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I made some kero solution and sterilized in the microwave. the Seran wrap sealed it up nice and i put the lid on it. Its cooling now but when i just checked it, the sides have been sucked in like there is negative pressure in there. How do i release the pressure without it sucking any contams in? When i stick my needle in it, its gonna suck air in. Any advice?

Plus I can see a few small, clear chunks floating in the solution. Is this bad?

Since you have a layer of seran wrap...you could tape a patch of tyvek on it and punture the seran wrap through the tyvek. It would be to your advantage to have some air exchange anyhow.

i would have a hole in the tyvek as well, wouldnt non-sterile air still get in?


Ive turned a few people on to Fake Realism, congrats

i put 3 layers on my karo jars. one layer then lid then next layer then one more. i lift the very top layer and inoc through the first 2 layers. chunks could be carmalized karo but ive never done that so i dont know what it looks like.

Did this guy even use a "jar"? can't suck the sides into a jar
Another suggestion Use a whole lid with a hole off center just big enough for da needle. Then cover hole with small round breathable bandaids everytime you stick a needle in!

could be carmaliezed karo,
could also be residue from some other use the jar may have had, if it wasn't cleaned properly
you should be okay either way
as long as you nuked long enough.
as far as your pressure problem,
make sure to put the lids on yr jars so the shiny side of the top lid is facing into the jar
vacuums are not your friends

man made some akro jars a week ago and they are not showing any real growth..i have like a msit of white in the bottom..kinda strings together.but from the pics i see, its nothing to count on. im sure when i had started i may have over heated the jars in the incubator..thinking that may have killed the spores? well if no contams are showing would it be possible to just throw the karo in some bulk poo straw

c hunks are caramalized. take ur handy dandy syuringe, and suck sum air up through the center of a flame into it, then innoc, and squirt the air in too. :-D.

i would just leave it alone for a few days more
check your temps, if they are either to high or two low
(more than a few degrees from 86f)
then your germination can be fucked up
myc looks very similar to what you described as far as being stringy and white
so i would guess you are expericing delayed colonization
don't do anything drastic like try to use karo to spawn directly to bulk
that's only gonna result in contams

that's your problem
if you don't see increased colonization soon, i would prob start from scratch with fresh spores

def. shoot air in those shits, if its not too late... if not, whenever u inject spores, itll just suck sum air from outside (  :crazy:! ) contams would come in. inject air.
