Liquid mycelium substrate
    #441482 - 10/30/01 03:28 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Apparently 4% agar solution is used as a liquid mycelium substrate. If I make a 4% agar solution, it becomes jelly-like, as agar is supposed to - not liquid. So do I just use a lower agar conc. for liquid substrate? Can I just use a 4% aqueous honey solution?

Many thankx,

Ive used 30g/L (3% soln ) malt extract quite effectively with b+, GC & others, avaliable at home brew shops. Get the lightest colour you can find. Make up a batch, pour into small jars ( clean baby food jars with holes in the lids) and PC for 20 minutes. Let them cool inside the PC, I find it best to leave it closed overnight.

I love my mycelium juice, It makes colonisation so quick compared to spores.

Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer. --Dave Barry

Don't add agar, just the nutrient mix. i.e. malt extract, dextrose, etc. The agar is what gels it up.
