I baught this jar of stuff called "Mad Hatter's Brew" from a website a few days ago and it's supposed to be able to multiply your syringe by 10 fold. I innoculate the brew with 10cc of spore solution and then incubate it at 86F for like 5 days. I can then use this brew as if it was spore solution to innoculate my substrate jars.

Has anyone heard of this and if so, is the process I described accurate? The seller didn't inculde instructions.

my guess is that it is honey water or possibly karo water. when you make the new syringes be sure and use a glove box.

karo water seems to work best and is not very difficult to make with a p/c'er and some free time. honey water when it is p/c'ed has globs of wax and what not in it. karo is more gooder. possibly the gooderest.

i prefer potato water over just karo... i boil about six potatoes for 10-15 min. and use that water with a "dab" of karo, like a nice sized drop. per 150 cc/ml of tater juice. PC for 20-25 min. at 15 psi works great. don't use a lot of karo at all just a dab for good measure.

proly just dextrose or powdered malt,
hope you didn't pay much as it's dirt cheap at any brew supply.
see http://archives.mycotopia.net/discus/messages/5/2558.html

no way, though, does it need 10 cc of spores ,
a couple cc is plenty to start it.
