LC color question
    #4206289 - 05/22/05 12:45 PM (13 years, 29 days ago)

Just got finished doing 9 baby bottles for LCs... and the water/3% karo inside the bottles has turned a yellowish, like urine. Is this okay?

(This happened when I used half-pint jars and I thought that the rust from the lids somehow got into the water so I threw all of them out.)

how did you sterilie it? WHen i do karo it changes tint a little. Chances are you didn't carmelize it as the chemical process of carmelization happens at like 315 degrees F. Ayways i have used yellow karo solution fine so give it a shot

The Karo was actually clear when I put it in the bottles; now it looks just like piss.

Oh, sterilization was done by PCing them at 15 psi for about 25 minutes. They were hot as fuck when I pulled them out.

"Karo" is a rather generic term & all "karo" doesn't contain the exact same sugars. Some brands of karo will brown sooner than others.

So long as the liquid is CLEAR & the solution is close to 3%, don't worry about it.


These all worked & each differs in color
