Quick honey tek question
    #363898 - 07/31/01 01:15 AM (17 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys

Is it ok if about half the water boils off during the sterilization process for the Honey Tek?

I used a 1/2 pint jar, with 1 cup of mineral water and about a tps of clover honey. I covered the top with seran wrap, poked a few holes in it, and nuked on high for five minutes.

When i was done microwaving it, about half the water was gone, boiled off as steam during the sterilization process. Is this OK? All it does is make the solution a little yellower as the honey is a higher % of the solution now.

Unless I microwaved for a shorter amount of time, it'd be real hard to keep that much water from boiling off.

Should this be ok?

Not OK. Too sweet and it kills the mycelia.

Ok, so how clear does the liquid need to be? Based on previoous posts I did several jars, and one didn't boil over very much. The liquid has a definite yellow tint, but you can see through it pretty well...

My water is a lot clearer than this guys: http://www.wc1x.demon.co.uk/kitchen/honey.jpg

Does this sound ok?

Damn, so it seems pretty obvious. I take it your water had a yellowish tint, right? OR is that just weird light refraction?

Ok, thanks for that pic, I was worried I'd be busting out the microscope, and asking particles as they float by if they've seen any mycelium

Thanks for digging that up

250 ml jar with plastic lid(1 central hole on lid) + 1 honey tea spoon. Microwave for 5 minutes, innoculate using the hole on lid.

Pics ? Sure!!!
