Too much honey in LC?
    #5250583 - 02/01/06 12:35 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys...
well I think I made my honeywater solution with too much honey. *doh*. I didn't read enough stupid me, and missed that you shouldn't put in too much. I just added honey till it looked like the water was fairly tainted. That was at about 1+1/2 till 2 teaspoons of honey for a half-pint jar. I inoculated 4 days ago and have kept at 80 degrees. I'm not worried that it doesn't show signs of growth yet (though it does look like there are a lot of little bits of fluff and stuff floating around) because I know that 4 days isn'T long. But I am wondering (since I have read that it is possible to add to much honey) wether there is no point waiting anyhow and just start off a new one...
thanks for any advice and sorry for this dumbass mistake... read before doing!!!

If you see "fluff" floating around then it's probably working and I wouldn't mess with it.

a teaspoon is 3cc's 1cc of water weighs 1 gram. So if you were to do 100ml total then you would want 96cc water and 4cc honey. that would be 4%. I think that your fine. leave it for a few days and check up on it.

ahh ok thanks... well I'll leave it as it is in that case. I didn't messure my ratio out so I'm not sure about it.. thats the thing. I just did by feel adding as much honey as would dissolve properly until the water was a fairly yellowish color.

And as to the fluff... I guess its possible that that is myc. But this LC has been looking fluffy like that since the beginning so I dunno. Also its not forming like fluffballs like its supposed to but just small (tiny) individual bits (like dust).. on the other hand though I haven't been stirring regularly (again didn't read that part until later.. *doh*). ALso I thought that an LC is usually ready in just a few days. hmm.. well well we shall see. thanks for the help.

IMHO your LC will be fine, you didn't put THAT much honey as to render it useless.Wait another week and see how it looks.

I weighed a teaspoon of honey and it was 9grams. The honey coats the spoon and on top is "higher" than the spoon edge. You really need a scales, $15 delivered on ebay new, many uses. Or use a syringe.

He was taking about TABLEspoons.
This is the main problem with most LCs IMO, too much sugar will allow no growth too little will just grow a bit less.

Oh if you used teaspoons than you should be fine. At first I swear you said tablespoons in witch case that would be too much.

Agitating the LC daily helps out alot.

On the LC I'm doing now, I used Wronguy's method of running the LC through the coffee maker. I put Karo into the filter and used just a little more water then what the jar needed to account for steam loss. Then I PC'd the coffee filtered Karo water and the result is a crystal clear solution that showed growth within 3 days.

Good call Wronguy! :thumbup:

Whats the point of running it trough the coffee filter that makes little to no sense? I mean just mixing kero and water you end up with a crystal clear sugar water solution.

Well, if you look closely, the Karo isn't completely clear. You see some sediment floating around after PC'ing. It's clear"ish", but not totally clear. It's not really neccessary to do this with Karo, but I like the solution crystal clear myself.

This coffee maker method also works with honey, dextrose, malt, etc LC mixes. Doing this will get rid of the sediments in those too.

could be a waxy component from the honey itself. Or some precipated proteins. It's a natural product, honey, so it could be nearly everything.
