Mych in LC going from white to brownish? wtf
    #4268744 - 06/07/05 06:28 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

why would the mycelium in my liquid cultures (5% karo) start growing a little bit and then stop.. and turn brownish? Ive been having issues getting a single LC to work for me... no visible contams, but it simply isnt working for me.


this is how it was for a while.. i swirled the water around and you can see the small little bits of mych in there.. it hasnt grown much since, and then it turned a brownish color (not the water.. the white substance itself turned brown)

I'd ask in the contam forum.....cause that's probably what you're looking at.

I had similar trouble w/ LC a year ago....

This summer i used 2% Karo Light w/ 2% light(est available) malt extract and it worked fine.

Multispore both times, but different source so I cannot attribute it to a change in medium.

I'm laughing, but on the inside where you can't hear it.
