Alcohol and the syringe....
    #4059769 - 04/15/05 06:37 PM (16 years, 26 days ago)

I just inoculated my first batch today (B+). Instead of flaming the needle in between injections I just wiped it clean with alcohol on toilet paper. Just wondering if the alcohol is going to give the mycelium any guff?? aside from the list of other worries I have about how well I did in terms of cleanliness and such this one is nagging me the most.

you will be fine, just dont post in 3 days telling us you are worried about the spores not germinataing becasue you used alcohol. Wait 2 weeks until you post that


--------------------
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.

I use Isopropyl rubbing alcohol with cotton balls.

you should be fine...as long as you didn't wipe your ass with the toilet paper.

Thanks.I just got some 70% yesterday. I want to do away with flaming my syringes. Added danger and waste of some solution. 5 days Road. Didn't forget, yet. Let me know what your favorite color is. Have a great day!!! And yes, it was about Viet Nam.

Used my alcohol burner once or twice and put it away after that, alcohol swab w/ 71% is all you need for this hobby. Even scraping spores off spore prints w/ syringe needle, I only use alcohol.

I think the burner kills more spores than it's worth, I certainly don't want my spore solution passing through a red hot needle!

Yes Diver, that's what I meant by wasting solution. Pushing out a few drops after flaming to cool the needle back down.
