Yo I'm trying to use your recipe here and things aren't adding up. To clarify it's 5 grams of brf and 5 grams agar to 15ml of water? It comes out way too dry

yes but right after he says add 15 ml of water so what does it mean? This makes a 250 ml solution? Where does 15ml come into play?

This is my first time messing with agar and I need clarification.

I'm pretty sure that he means 15ml per jar, but I just woke up and I'm a little foggy. I'm only answering this because I'm on way more often than @peacefrog.

 

Here's one recipe and process off of mine:

Here's what I use for reference:

https://mycotopia.ne...-log/?p=1198427

 

 

basically of all my recipes are (and the aloha recipes too):

 

10-12g agar

10g nutrition (dextrose, sucrose, instant potato flake, etc)

~0.5 additives (extremely optional, I'd skip this until you're comfy making your own)

600ml h2o

 

does that help?

Like cat said that is per jar. You don't put all 5 grams of agar agar and 5 grams of brf to that 15 ml. I mix all ingredients up in a separate bowl then place a heaping teaspoon or so into each jar filled with 15 ml each. You can also simmer in a pot then pour all in individual jars. I just never liked the added step personally. Do you have any pics? The type of agar agar may cause different consistencies as well. I have found that I add more per mix using food grade agar agar.

Below are pics of this BRF agar recipe using manure water while isolating pans:

Hahahahahahahahahaha! We're never on at the same time. It's like @nsnail put up the bat signal for agar and we both showed up!

Lol thanks y'all. I went over this in chat and caught the part where it said add a teaspoon of the mix so that seems a bit more reasonable, the wording confused me at first.

As for the agar I have powdered agar agar purchased from an Asian food store most of the writing is in a foreign language but I can post a pic when I get home.


*Edit
After checking cats links I do have the telephone brand agar. Since I'm new the idea is that I should skip the addition of karo and just do brf agar?
That aloha list itself seems like good archive material.

If it's powdered, you're good. Strips no bueno. As stated here:
