Glucose/Dextrose
    #3930748 - 03/17/05 04:01 PM (12 years, 9 days ago)

So what's the difference between the two?..
And is it ok to use either or both in an LC?

..And is this ok to work with if I crush them up?

The simplest sugar molecule is glucose, also called dextrose. Rather cleverly, glucose molecules make good building blocks. Also they are not symmetrical. So there's also a left handed version, called fructose. Sucrose (also called table sugar, granulated sugar or just plain sugar, ie that white stuff in the sugar bowl) is made up of one glucose and one fructose molecule. Maltose (that stuff in Ovaltine) is two glucose molecules and so on. When you get long and random chains of sugar molecules, it's called starch and no longer tastes sweet

And they both work fine, any diabetic shroomer would know that.  :wink:

I am not diabetic myself, but my friend who is has given me both dextrose, and glucose for LC, and they both work, but I prefer just buying a bottle of white corn syrup, and going that route. :wink:

I've tried Honey/malt ect ect...They didn't work well (:shrug:)
Probably my fault..Well yea, it was my fault haha
But I don't really like the color that honey is and buying striaght dextrose just seems like a better idea b/c it has nothing else in it...But i'm kind of viewing it from a nOObish stand point, I'm just now getting into LC's and such, so :shrug:..We'll see how it goes.
Tnkx guys

Any sugar anything will..the main point will probably be needing to add boiling water to anything powdered like just regular sugar or some tablets...and disolving it completly first. Then PCing after (15 minutes only).

Orange flavored tablets? Why not just use Karo? Get it at any grocery store next to the spices, vanillia in its ok and its perfectly clear..

For the mixture (if i used dried tablets), Would it be the same as using karo?

Hmmm..How many teaspoons to a pint (roughly)?

gnostic,
dextrose is better then karo/honey/malt for liquid/broth. The mycel will grow more rhizomorphic and chunky in dextrose where as in karo its grows softer not quite milkey but it doesnt hold together as good. You will notice once you try it. The mycel grow thick and just sits at the bottom. Dextrose is way better, its as good as potatoe broth.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

as for mixture, Workman from sporesworks and I use 1 tbls per quart or 1 liter. For myself i use less then 1 tsp per 125ml. I grow it in small mouth pint jars. I find that using big ass 1/2 gallons tend to spoil before i can use them.
Can you pic the diry one?

Karo, note the growth is soft

Dextrose, its tougher mycel. All from Argaricus biporous

most broth recipes tend to be too rich. So it could just be because i use alot less sugar then most. Workman has the same results and no worries about the mutations caused by the sugar
