Breaking up agar
    #1264454 - 01/31/03 07:03 AM (14 years, 26 days ago)

I am using quart jars and am innoculating them with chunks of agar but the agar doesn't seem to break up when I shake the jars. What am I doing wrong? Is the agar too thick? How thick should it be when I make the dishes?

agar is like drying glue. it's flexible, but it won't break if you're just shaking it. (bad analogy) agar will not break up. the only thing you're accomplishing is the smearing/removal and spreading of myc. within the jar so that there is more than one spot for it to colonize, so it colonizes quicker.. in short, the agar wont break up, its the myce.

Cut the agar into small pieces and add more than one piece that solves the problem
