    #3545134 - 12/26/04 08:51 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

if there anyway to know for sure it has been contamed? or do you need to try it on a jar to find out?

it seems to have worked, I put one tea spoon of pure honey with bee polin or something into about 150 ml of filtered water. and now there is swirls of white crap inside, I'm wondering if contams are easy to spot?

the honey tek works quite well...

just pc ir for 20 min or so, look at it and see what kind of impurities are there. inoculate and wait, if the only germination is the mycelium one you'll just se white miniscule strings growing, if contaminant germination occures you'll see a kind of larger impurities growing eventually to an obvious contamination.

my advice is to be carefull doing the honey tek and make at least 3 jars of it, the probability of having one good is stronger, however, contams identification on liquid cultures are difficult

I'm a karo convert. Turning a few spores into a whole lot of thick mycelium culture is the way to go. No contamination so far. When the first fog of white mycelium shows up in the bottom of the jar, I inject about 5 ml of 3% peroxide to the 100 ml of liquid. After that the fog quickly grows into a thick white gob. The peroxide is good for the mycelium, and bad for almost anything else.
