Which of the liquid cultures nutes grows best? Honey, Karo, or something else?

I'm just curious if I'd get better results with Karo than with Honey.

I had some really good results from a jar of the liquid from simmered corn.

Like a nice thick, foggy, murky cloud?

I have some honey water, but theres not all that much myc in it.. Maybe because its only been like 4 or 5 days.

So you'd suggest karo to a n00b?

I suppose I could just suck up some cultured honeywater and squirt it into a karo tek jar?

I might as well... I'll compare them and report back if the findings are extraordinary.

Light dry malt & dry dextrose. 2 heaping teaspoons each to quart water, boil, strain through coffee filter (removes anything that carmalizes), jar up, PC 20 / 25 minutes @ 15 lbs.

What is "Light dry malt?"
Can you find it at home brew stores as well?

I inoculated Karo jar on 02/08/05 1:00AM, I checked just now and have some beautiful little nute eating loogees (mycelium) in there. I only pressure cooked it for 10 minutes, 2cc's of Mexi-Cub, covered with towel and set on my water heater.

My question if anyone knows is... When do you know when the jar is ready?

>>>>>>> When do you know when the jar is ready? <<<<<<<

Wait until myc mass is around 10 to 15% (or better) size of liquid in container, IMHO. If it grows that far - out?

But, its good to go the minute you gave visible growth. More growth is just much better. Visible myc is at least 1,000 times larger than spore. More visible myc, more contact & grow points - when you innoc.
