Has anyone tried using coconut milk as a LC base?

I was just talking about this with my buddy the other day... I have not tried but my thoughts were that it should perform similarly to potato dextrose and a brief google search seemed to support that... I am sure someone on here has given it a try.

I haven't tried coconut water, it's kind of expensive and there are so many things that work so good. Grain soak water is good and malt extract is good. Save your grain soak/simmer water and freeze it in a ziplock or such, dilute 1:1 or so for great LC.

I hadnt thought of the soak water. I'd filter it first :-).

Hey guys, Is this normal? it's been only 5 days since I inoculated this jar for LC. And on day 3 I noticed this big puffy myc. I mean can I use it already? I didn't expect it to be like this so quick. Should I put it on the stirrer until it dissolves? I did put it on the stirrer early today for about 40 mins.

I am having a hard time seeing in your photos... Did you start it from agar or MS? 5 days is awfully quick for MS...

Here is a photo of a Golden Oyster LC I started from another LC.... It was aggressive... This is after 3 days which I thought was fast.

I can’t see your photos well enough to really tell but if it is filled with what appears to be myc, try a test jar first....

Yeah mine looks like yours, maybe thicker. I used spores. There were lots of clots of spores in the syringe that got then transferred onto the jar. Another LC jar I did on the same day, but from a different strain, is no where near this one. On that one you could see some minor growth if looking really close. Difference between the two jars I see is that the one in question has got spores clots in it.

How much of this should I use to inoculate a 1/2 pint jar?

When I accidentally shot clots into my LC it was super fast, identical to yours. The spores dont have to look too hard for a mate. Just make sure to give that thing a good shake to break things up, and continue stirring a couple times a day.

You can use it in a few days, I find if you let the mycelium use most of the nutes before you use it, they contam less.

Looking good BTW.

Use the LC like spore water. 1 to 2 ml per jar, more if you can spare the extra water in the grain. You can also shake after innoculation.

Is this bad? I used it yesterday and today I found it developed this brownish clot.
