LIQUID CULTURE TIPS

Basic measurements in gram units to easily calculate nutrient content are listed below. A standard recipe for liquid culture is


a quart of LC, ~600ml of water.


3-4% concentration of malt/dex.


600ml is about 122 teaspoons or about 41 tablespoons.


3% of that is about 1.22 tablespoons.

4% of that is about 1.63 tablespoons.

that's total, for both dex and malt.


so ideally, you want about 2-3 teaspoons of each per quart.

3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) each will bring you to around a

5% solution. ( MAX AMOUNT)



Tips

  • 1 gram of water weighs 1 ml

  • 1 tablespoon of dextrose weighs ~10 grams. This could vary slightly.

  • A tablespoon of light malt extract weighs approximately 10 grams. This may vary slightly.

  • 10 ml honey equals 14 grams
