Hey Kids,

Seems like some of Noob Mycologists (like me) are missing out on the beauty of the liquid Culture, so I am going to log a grow using Hippie3's Airport Tek (cuz I heard it's the shit!) and a Mex Pal syringe from The Good Spore.


Materials needed for LC are as follows:


Vanilla Extract
Honey
Pint Jar
Screw Driver
Silicon sealant
Plastic wrap ***(Optional)
Hip3's Airport Syringe
Syringe of spores
Aluminum Foil


(1) Take Pint Jar and poke 2 holes in it with screw driver.

(2) Put a nice sized blob of silicon on top and bottom of both holes.

(3) place 1 teaspoon of organic honey and a touch of vannilla extract in bottom of the pint jar

(4) Fill with water

(5) Microwave for 30 seconds and stir with spoon.

(6) (optional)***While the juice is nuking, I like to place some plastic wrap on the semi-dry silicon and press it down flat so it doesn't ever fall off. I let it dry some more and pull off the wrap. It should look like the pics.

(7) Put dryed lids on the jars and cover with foil

(8) PC on 5-10 PSI for 30 min

(9) Let Cool

(10) insert Airport Syringe to release pressure

(11) Knockage ***(will do this tommorrow)

It is as easy as that kids... Please feel free to add to or subtract from this thread as you wish. Thanks again to hippie3 and TGS for this stuff..

We will be Knocking up the following in a few days when we have Mycelium in the LC:

12 Pints of Sterilized WBS/Lime

Notice the water content in the jars..

This is how you want it to look!! Drain your soaked and simmered WBS well! I add the lime while I am soaking and I simmer the WBS in the same H20, then drain, put in jars then PC...

I use the Polyfill plastic lids because they are so easy and don't rust...

Knockage!!

10 cc's of Mex Pal from The Good Spore...


REMEMBER... Depressurize the LC with the Airport syringe first if you dont want to use a whole syringe...

I got plenty of syringes and prints I need to get rid of so I just shot up the whole thing, I would assume 1 or 2 ccs would work fine...

I have read (in these wonderful pages) that even just a couple of marbles in the jar will act as stirrers.
I really love Mycotopia. You guys/gals are the shit. I have learned so much here and I have to thank all of you.:headbang:

This is true!

I have even just shaken the shit out of my jars to move the Mycelium around... I agree about the Topia Too! Welcome aboard!!

the silicon ports makes shaking a decent option for breaking up the tissue to fill syringes
however shaking, even with marbles,
is no substitute for running a stir bar -
the difference is phenomenal ,
well worth the investment of time & materials
imo .

How does the stir bar add growth? Break the mycelia strands and create new grow points? I found a plate and 10 stir bars for $50. I snatched it up and I am ready to find a use for it.

Hippie, I just made an LC jar with a stir bar in it. Do I run the stir plate on low 24/7 or just occasionally run to break up he strands of mycelia?
