help on honey tek
    #4622221 - 09/05/05 01:37 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Ive seen a couple web sites talking about honey tek to start spores on, so you can fill syringes. this method look relativly simple except they dont specify how much honey, water, time in cooker. So if there is any one whos succesfully used this method could you help me out. thanks.

The ratio is 4mills of honey/100mills of H20. PC'd for 20 minutes @ 15psi, or a light steam sterilization for 30 minutes in a spaghetti pot.

I thought it was 4 mill honey and 96 mil water. 4% ,lol.

You can also use light Karo syrup, Light Malt Extract with Dextrose, and a few other things. They're Liquid Cultures. Check out the TEK's.

Good Luck. :grin:

I just started 4 liquid cultures myself. GT, SAM, OI and B+. I used 1 cup of water and 1 teaspoon of honey in each jar. PCed strained then PCed again. It's only been 2 days so we'll see how it goes. GL!

Pic 1 is 1 tablespoon. The rest are 1.5 tablespoons. Both ratios are great. 1 spoon full will just lighten up the color a bit, but 1.5 spoon fulls f'n flies....

If you are unsure always add less rather than more. Too much sugar and the spores will not grow at all, too little and you just get less growth.

The honey I have at the moment is only 75% sugar, so I should be adding more than 4g per 96ml to get a 4% sugar solution.
4ml of honey will weigh more than 4g since it is so dense. But I wouldnt worry too much, just dont add too much

I understand honey is antimicrobial, why the need for sterilization, when I first heard about the honey tek my first thought was "goodbye pressure-cooker". Any thoughts?

If it killed everything then it would be killing the spores you are injecting too...
