I did my karo following nans karo tek.
1 Teaspoon Karo = 100ml water

240ml in a half pint
3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon

So you put 3 times as much recomended karo as I have seen in a lot of other teks.... I thought this would get some negative results.


--------------------
I have many many questions...

How long does it take for the spores to colonize? I'm thinking you would see visiable growth in 3 days

I use a TABLE spoon of karo to a 1/2 pint as well. 2 tablesppons seems like a little much to even me who they tell I put to much...I dont think it will really hurt though and karos cheap.

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

i tried one tablespoon and didn't get great results because i filter out the caramelized parts. the second one is to take the place of loss from caramelized sugar... i didn't have that problem until i started PCing it, but i figure it's more sterile to PC the stuff.
