Beer leavening question.
    #575863 - 03/11/02 02:39 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Is there any use for beer leavening ? I mean, adding this to agar gel wouldn't create a nutritive medium ? Or even adding it to the substrate.
Help !? Thanks.

Peace,
MAIA

try using straight beer in this formula given to us by Rush Wayn
1 part beer
3 parts water
2% agar agar
also you can substitute cardboard or news paper for agar.
When doing this cut the cardboard into circles to fit the petri dishes

Whats the purpose of the cardboard again? you somewhat lost me on this method. the cardboard or newspaper just soaks up yoru mixture and grow the culture on the wet paper?

agar agar is like $0.10 / gram :P

Yes the mycelium grows over the cardboard. Wayne suggests using "Grey Cardboard" and not corragated cardboard. I have no idea what grey card board is.

perhaps posterboard? you can get unbleached grey posterboard..
i played with corrugated and woodloving strains and they seemed to enjoy it.. ripped through it in fact after a short substrate-change induced delay.
