    Hey all,

    I have some GT syringes from April last year I didnt get to using, like 5 of them. I know they say to use within 6 months or less. So should I get rid of them or give them a try? I was thinking about putting some on a few agar plates, or I could try a master grain jar. Thanks

    Both of those options makes sense to me. Keep us in the loop

    I'd make up ten jars and hit up 2 jars using 1cc per jar for each of the 5 syringes

    Thanks redcat, just so I'm clear... 1cc per syringe in each jar? So 5 ccs in each jar? Thanks

    I cc per jar, 2 jars per syringe. Be sure to shake up the syringes right before using them. Break up the clump of spores.
