Oysters can be used in liquid culture.

About the only way to test for liquid culture purity is to streak onto agar. White filaments are a good sign, but not a guarentee of pure culture.

So, no, noone will be able to identify the fungi in the liquid, especially without a picture.

You should wait a couple of more days then test it on agar, as it has been said.

I am growing oysters, I use rye to start them, using the newspaper method to grow, and put a spoon full of spawn in rye jars as I make up the news paper blocks to keep the cycle going, and they are super aggressive, filling a quart bottle in a week, no shaking. They go through wet newspaper like mad. Get em going in rye, and start dividing the result. They look dead for a day or two, than fine filiments start showing up throughout the jar, and suddenly, it looks like styrofoam. one jar does 50 lbs wet newspaper and spreads in about two weeks.
