I'd say PC it for 15 @ 45psi, then just store in a closet or something not in the fridge though, they are super dirty. You can PC with the lid nice and tight, just make sure that you let it cool ALL THE WAY before you open, or else it will pop. I've kept unused slants for 6 months plus without any problems.

thank you for responding Pitcher,
i will use your logical suggestion if cant find another one.

i made a small boo boo. i mixed up a half liter of MEA  when i really planned to use a half liter of Karo liquid....so now i have a half liter of unsterilized MEA.

Maybe i should have asked. ...is it possible to "freeze" Malt,Potatoes or Oatmeal agar's and pc them after unthawing ? all replys welcomed

yeah,uh huh...but you're saying Fridge and i am saying Freezer    Freezer....as in frozen stiff.  i wonder if the nutriment agars can even survive a FREEZING then reconstitute back to proper semi solid gel form ?

maybe i ll commit this half liter to the freezer compartment then report the results of thawing to the forum !  take it ezy everybody and out all contams

I once read a thread about creating ice cubes from the agar mixture and later throwing single cubes into agar dishes for PCing. Might be an idea for you too.

Dunkah for the reply Mycelio... ok, apparently from your post then agar media can survive below 32 degrees F and still be useful .... i  have 1 quest ...why did they make the agar into  ice cubes first before PCing ???      out all contams! Imorph

Unfortunately I can't find this old thread. Perhaps somebody else remembers and can help?

Anyway, the cool thing was that one ice cube just had the proper volume for one petri dish, so a large amount of agar cubes could be prepared once and later taken out one by one, while the rest would stay frozen.

oh ok!...thx again i just happen to have a cube tray in the frig...that's a good idea!...so when you decide to PC plates you already have the measured amount for each plate ...i have over poured plates on

a couple of occasions...this makes agar work more convenience... ah sweet serendipity!

i ll maybe be posting my small salvaged elm oyster grow in days or a week.  thx and aveedazane,    out all contams! Imorph
