Honey Water Questions (Not Covered in TEK)...
    #568828 - 03/03/02 06:41 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Hey All,
I started my honey water 48 hours ago. I used the Club99's Honey Water TEK. I put 1tsp of totally unfiltered, organic honey in 1/2 pint jars. Also, the jars were filled with distilled water. I made three jars. I put all three, uncovered, in my microwave and nuked on high for 15 minutes. I wiped the microwave out with alcohol, it is very clean on the inside. The TEK said five minutes for 1 jar, so I decided to use 15 minutes for 3 jars. Maybe this was incorrect? I wiped the jar lids with alcohol to sterilize them, and open the microwave and quickly places the lids on the still hot jars. This was dumb because later there was a vacuum created. Lesson learned. I let these jars cool. I wiped the outside down with alcohol and sprayed them with lysol. I lysoled the inside of my glovebox, and put the jars in. I let the fan run for about 5 minutes. I pryed on the lids and squirted about 2 cc's of liquid into each jar, being careful to not touch the needle in the water, or anything else. I put the lids back on, and screwed the tops down, not totally tight, but a little loose. I put them in a rubbermaid container filled halfway with distilled water and a fishtank heater set at 80 degrees. Two days later, I have jars that have stuff at the bottom. Nothing is suspended in the liquid, unless I agitate them. The stuff in the jars looks like little tiny chunks of yellowish, whitish balls. Does this sounds right? This is 48 hours after the initial innoculation. Do you think I nuked the honeywater too long and carmelized the honey? What would that look like? Nothing is floating on the surface of the jars. The water is sort of a very pale yellow color. Not cloudy, clear. The matter in the jars is resting on the bottom of the jars. How long does it take for the jars to take off, where you can see results?

Thanks for your help, I am a newbie to this.
My spore are PF. I believe they are good.

I have this same problem. I did 2 jars(using a similiar tek), 1 jar has very white healthy looking mycelium floating(suspended) in the water, so I know this one is okay. However, the 2nd one has chunks of yellowish shit floating on the bottom. What this probably is, is too much honey. And/or too long in the microwave. I plan on just throwing this jar away. On the jar that doesnt look good I put 2 tablespoons of honey in the jar(which is a PINT sized jar) and the one that is very healthy looking I only put 1 tablespoon. So I really think that you may have put too much honey in your jars. Try it again, only don't put so much honey in the jars and try not nuking them as long.
Hope this helps.
