My liquid cult (1 pint jar, 3/4ths full w/ 7 teaspoons of clover honey + 1.5 ccs of creep) caramalized quite a bit...I'd say about a teaspoon and a half's worth of caramel is on the bottom, lots of crystals...Well i figured that the karo liquid has been somewhat robbed of sugars now due to the caramelization, but im was curious as to whether or not this would greatly effect my grow And if it'd effect the myc. that would be growing...i don't kno how it would effect it so i can't eleborate more but im talking in terms of the mycelium falling to the bottom and getting saturated in sugars....would that be a bad thing? Hmmm...well thankx for ur imput

I'm not sure, I've definatly used somewhat caramelized liquid cultures with no problems but the liquid turned a honey color, it didnt get to the point of crystals. I had no problems with growth but I have been told that caramelization can inhibit growth and create mutants.

If it were me and you have another cc of spores, I'd make a new culture..but keep the one you have now and see what happens. Just use it for experimentation, you might find out that its fine, but dont depend on it.
