    The recipe I use is:
    300ml water
    2.4g potato flakes
    6-7g dextrose(honey)
    5-6g agar

    Is 1 gram of honey 1 teaspoon? What about the potato flakes? Teaspoons or tablespoons? I know this seems elementary but I’m a newbie. Been growing since last September but there’s a lot I havnt done yet like trying to isolate cultures. Also I’m just beginning to try liquid culture.

    A level teaspoon is usually 5ml, if that was filled with water it would weigh 5 grams (not sure if honey is heavier than water or not though).

    Honey packets are usually 10-12g. so I guess a teaspoon would be 5-7g
    for the Potato flakes, I guess a teaspoon is enough
    and for agar, maybe 2 teaspoons, maybe more.. depends on the agar brand
