Can karo be inoculated with spore syringe?
    #4121032 - 05/01/05 11:15 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I'm looking for a way to stretch a spore syringe. I've only gor like 3 CC left. I've read the karo tek, but I'm wondering if I can just fill a jar with karo/water solution and inoculate the whole jar with the syringe?

yes, here is a link to a simple microwave karo tek that seems to work great for me. Instead of using the sarawrap, i just drill about an 1/8th inch hole in the lid, microwave, and when it's done put some tape over the hole. After it cools i lift the tape, inoculate, and stick the tape back down. It's way easier and less complicated that the sarawrap.

I also use a bit more karo than the tek suggests.

yes, but i think it would be better to do 3 or 4 1/2 pint jars, and split the syringe between them  :smirk:

If you don't own a pc, steaming them for 45 minutes works great. Simply cover the filtered lid with foil and steam on medium low on the stove top covered. If you do own a pc, pc for 30 minutes @ 15psi. Use 1-2 cc's of multispore solution per jar. This is the point of the tek. To get the most out of a syringe. 1- 2 cc's of a shaken syringe per jar.
