Anyone had any experience with milk dunking invitro grown fruits?

i've dunked invitro cakes in skim milk several times, if that's what you mean.
do it in the fridge, no longer than 12 hours, drain and rinse well afterwards.

This is my 1st time ever growing and I've had great luck thanks to the PF tek method and THIS SITES added info. All 9 of my cakes I started with have been colonized fully but 2 of them haven't gotten fuzzy. I've had almost 9 grams (dried) off of 3 of the cakes that did start fruiting in the past 2 weeks. So I was going to try dunking the 2 late comers. It seems water is safer but milk (if it works) yields more. Has anyone tried a milk/water mixture before??? I was gonna give it a shot, then post results

Quote has mentioned using powdered non fat milk. Since that is mixed with water, it should work fine. But since the whole concept of using bottled skim milk is to provide nutrients as well as moisture to the cake, I wouldn't dilute it. With powdered you could even make the solution stronger.

yeah, not just milk, but skim or non-fat powdered only.
