Honey is dextrose, so yeah it's easy to find. But what do you use it for?

No, honey is not dextrose. Dextrose is corn sugar, and you can usually only find it at home brewing stores, and its dirt cheap too.

It makes a great nutritious additive to a liquid innoculant.

Thanx all of you I found bacterial grade dextrose for cheap and figured I would keep it around so if somebody needed some I could help out.
I found this new site(not me personally) but it is called labx.com and it has all kinds of cool lab shit to play with and sometimes cheap cult supplies.
but again it is mostly in bulk or multiple items.

Maxawow: yes, honey is dextrose, or rather dextrose (otherwise known as glucose) is the principal ingredient of honey, along with water, fructose (cane sugar), and various other organic compounds. Dextrose is a simple sugar also found in certain sweet fruits including, presumably, corn. Don't correct a person unless you know what you're talking about.

Dextrose is used in most culture mediums. As in MDA and PDA, (malt, detrose,agar//potatoe dextrose agar). These being the most commonly used mediums use in culture isolates of fungi. Honey is a from of dextrose as is corn sryup. Both of these work well in the formation of cultures. Useing 15ml per liter.

Dude, sorry but the definition of dextrose is corn sugar and i've read that it can come from different sources other that corn as well. Look it up in a dictionary if you need to. And you think fructose is cane sugar? Fructose is fruit sugar, or sugar that comes mainly from fruit. Sucrose is cane sugar.

Honey is primarily composed of fructose, glucose and water. It also contains other sugars as well trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. So you could say that honey has dextrose (glucose) in it. But to say that honey IS dextrose is just not true.
Sorry but it looks like you are the one who doesnt exactly know what he is talking about.

Re: DEXTROSE anyone?? [Re: dimitri211]

Dextrose (glucose, grape sugar), monosaccharide sugar with the empirical formula C6H12O6 . This carbohydrate occurs in the sap of most plants and in the juice of grapes and other fruits. Glucose is a normal component of animal blood; it thus requires no digestion prior to absorption into the bloodstream. Dextrose can be obtained by hydrolysis of a variety of carbohydrates, e.g., milk and cane sugars, maltose, cellulose, or glycogen, but it is usually manufactured by hydrolysis of cornstarch with steam and dilute acid; the corn syrup thus obtained contains also some dextrins and maltose. Glucose is used in the manufacture of candy, chewing gum, jams, jellies, table syrups, and other foods, and for many other purposes. It is the major source of energy in animal metabolism. Glucose tastes only about three-fourths as sweet as table sugar (sucrose).

Understood ?????

Cheers,
MAIA

No, for some reason dextrin retards myclium growth

Thank you MAIA. While you're at it, what exactly is malt extract? I heard you can use it to make mycelium syringes.

malt syrup and malt extract are the same. It is the sugars (mainly maltose (can't remember off top of my head, but pretty sure maltose is a glucose dimer)) extracted from malted barley. Much of the H2O used in the extraction process is then evaporated to give it the viscous consistancy (syrup) or completely dried for the extract powder.

I allways think of beer when i read this posts :)
Anyway maltose is a disaccharide of 2 glucose molecules, and the primary fermentable sugar obtained from mashing malt, there're also other saccharides as maltotetraose(4 glocuse molecules wich is dextrin , BTW now i know why fungus don't like dextrin, it's unfermentable) or maltotriose(3 glocuse molecules, slowly fermentable).
Malt extract is a concentrated preparation of wort, it's available as syrup or powder.

Cheers,
MAIA

Ahhh, yes! you should think of beer. That sweet elixer of life.

Sorry, if I digress from this thread for a moment...Just picked up a new keg-a-rator today with a 10 lb C02 tank and am getting ready to brew a Hefeweizen.

BTW Does anyone know how long to soak shrooms in H20/ethanol (<= 5% ethanol) to get a good extraction? My idea is to aim for an approximate 0.5-0.75 gram of shroom per 12 oz of beer. My ultamite goal is to have a beer you can drink and enjoy but yet still decide to get f****d and trippin on. Any ideas/experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
homebrew
