How to know if a honey tek is infected?
    #4372642 - 07/05/05 05:23 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hi.

I have honey tek prepared and in 10 days aproximately appeared several pieces of mycellium. If there is not any strange color can I suppose that it is not infected?

I inoculated some big jars and appeared strange orange or yellow parts very few days after inoculation. But I think that this is caused by the size of the bottle and the method of sterilization (boiling in water for 1'5 - 2 hours)

thank you in advance.

LC ain't right - if it ain't white.

Sounds like your LC was good & big jars content wasn't.

Think PC.

I've made 12 and none were white, per say.

The ones with malt and dextrose are golden yellowish, from the malt I guess.

The ones with Karo where whitter, but still a little off white.

Have tested 6 on cakes and fruited all of them.

Myc will take on coloration from the nutrients used.

Karo adds very little coloration - as it is clear. So myc is whiter.

By "white", I meant the myc (which - again can discolor - slightly - via nutrients, in the solution)should be all the same color (sometimes a dusty gray white).

point is, any outright GRAY - BLUE - GREEN - or any funny color means something is growing in it, besides myc.

Sorry, I should have clarified it better.

Even if it looks good, spray some in a shot glass and give it a smell, if it smells bad toss it.

Thanks for the support. I smelled a bit strange and I throw it to the WC :S.

Now I won't waste more time with this infected syringes.
