Agar Punkins Way
« on: February 01, 2011, 05:20:42 AM »
Not mine at all, but collected from the collective experience round the net, and i've found it works well.
The general wisdom say's to vary your recipe occasionally to keep your mycellium guessing.

I use;

5 Gram Potato Extract (Deb)
9 Gram powdered agar
10 Gram of either Karo or Dextrose
1 Gram Vegemite
500 ml boiling water.


Pour into a whiskey bottle, cap and shake until dissolved.

Loosen cap and cover with foil, pressure cook for 15 mins at 15psi.

Remove bottle while still hot and pour dishhes once it has cooled sufficiently to handle

I just borrowed this agar recipe and then butchered it :(

I copied the vegemite, water, agar and dextrose but because I didn't have deb I sourced some starch from somewhere else, I put a couple of wheat bix in the pot. 

Then I strained it through a coffee filter...which was an epic fail.  No fluid came through the filter.  So I broke the filter and let it all into the conical flask, added the agar and brought to the boil again. 

We'll see how the particulate agar goes I guess...

I know this post is old and sorry if I offend.  I have never seen vegemite in an agar recipe before.  Only in Australia   :)

I wonder whether Marmite would work just as well?
