Wow! Great stuff.. my FOAF actually just received his spores in the mail. So we're about to do some shopping. This will be his first attempt trying LC, I think he wants to try 15 mls Honey, 15 mls karo, 400 mls water. Maybe a little less honey and karo. Just not sure about the lids.. might try hippie3's

dAMN, BRO...WHERE HAVE i BEEN HIDING !

bro you iz dee shitz mane. I just now saw this thread and hol moly, got to say this method looks great. NICE work my man , appreciate all the pics and lids , jars , updates and the works. I the time youve been here you certainly havent let grass grow under your feet.....Actvive member indeed and so forthcoming as well as ambitious. Hats off to you Irish , you really know how to set the bar :eusa_clap.

Curious why you went with the oven and not PC , was it a caramelization factor ?


That seems like extremely aggressive growth in the first several days. Is there a reason you wait 5 days to roll the marbles , ...at three days I'd be wanting to swush. Man , this looks like a great tek . wow :bow: wow.

I hope to see high hits on this thread.

Rock On Bro,
LSDarkstar

Just didn't have a PC man and decied to some up with a way of sterlizing the LC's and 250 to 300 in the oven for 50 minutes works wonders. As soon as you noticed the LC starting to bubble pull er out and let it cool and bingo all is clean.

Yes I like to let the mycelium get established before I swirl, I have also noticed that the Less you swirl the more dense the growth will be. Of course the longer that will take but, good thing comes to those who wait correct.

Thank you for you awesome comments man I am honored.

here is some more pic of a couple more LC's I have going. The first is a Haws, a clone (mycelium clone from the last haws LC I did off MS) and the second id OI that is approx a week.

this is kind of a side bar question. once you have the myc looking like this, it will survice in the fridge now? for many months?

Peace

I think I see a horsey in those myc clouds!!
Nice looking combo for sure-
In my vast experience (2 pint jars of LC) I used some left over malt from brewing and had very good results. (except for almost suffocating one)

I used all my honey for mead-

Maybe a malt-karo-honey thang.
