A quick Agar question.
    #3729092 - 02/04/05 06:30 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

At the brew store the guy told me I can get 1000grams of malt extract , and I have  choice between 2 yeasts, the cheaper yeast, and the better more expensive yeast.

I am going to go with the more expensive yeast because I care about my mycelium :heart: , but will make a difference??? (at least for my purposes)
1 dollar yeast compared to 3 dollar yeast??


Now I just have to get the Agar, which seems like that hardest part, but I have been told chinese food shops and wholesale places should have it(I think) , but I just havent gotten aroun to asking.

I also dont have a scapel. :tongue:

I am getting ready to pour for the first time, I cant belive it took me this long to realize how cool agar is, this article about Agar is what made me say, "I have to"
(and I am going to use this mix ,MEA (Malt Extract Agar)
Working with Agar

Never done homemade mixes myself , but I do not think it will make a big noticeable difference which yeast you use .
As far as getting plain agar base , also try Indonesian food stores or anywheres that caters to the vegetarian , they use it as an alternative to gelatin , if you did not know gelatin is an animal based product ... it is made from the hooves of goats and such .

PS welcome to the world of agar ... Once you try it and have good results you will never turn back IMHO .

yeah agar is definitely at asian food markets. I've gotten it at Whole Foods before for around $6 for a tiny little pack. At an asian market I've gotten a box of it, which had to be at least 10 times the size, for about $3. Go for the powdered stuff because they also sell it in big fist sized clumps at those places. Look in the dessert section.
