most likely culprit would be the injection holes/tape.
did you work inside glovebox ?
even a brief exposure is too much...

Ok cool, thanks guys.

I didnt use a glove box but I did spray the air in the room with bleach before injecting.

I will try again, Next go I will try a few different ones and build a glove box

I will try one with dextrose, one with malt and one with glucose and see what I get the best results from and report back.

Id like to have strerile tape but I dont, I got no idea where to get tyvek from, so i will go with the aluminium foil I think.

Thanks again guys for your help!

medical tape or bandaids are sterile from package
but really you need a self-sealing port, go to auto parts store and buy silicon adhesive to use to fill lid hole so needle goes thru but hole closes after withdrawing.

Hi Guys,

Here is attempt 2

1 = 500ml water and 20grams dextrose
2 = 500ml water and 20grams coopers home brew enhancer (Dextrose, Light Malt, Maltodextrin)
3 = 500ml water and 20ml Non Organic Honey
4 = 500ml water and 20ml Glucose Syrup

Fuck and I just realised i forgot to put my silicon on the holes, doh! I'll figure somethin out :)

Hmm damn it. I dont think it worked, if anything the coopers home brew seemed to work the best, but

Dextrose : Got nothin
Honey : Got something, but im pretty sure its not myc
Glucose : Got nothin
Coopers Home Brew : Got something, I think its myc, very difficult to tell, I sucked it into syringes today, Ill let them sit for a week or so and see what it looks like.

I havent included photos because they just dont come up clear enough.

One thing I will add is that im not using an incubator because the temperature ranges between the right ones anyway, maybe slightly under. Maybe thats my problem.

I think ill stick to just using spores straight in :) Ill have another shot at this when im a bit more of a guru.
