New Guy Alert!!!, Agar ???
    #1351398 - 03/05/03 04:36 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello Everyone!!!

This is my first post, soooo, sorry for the dumb questions,, i reserve the right to be a dumbass for at least 100 posts.. hahahaha...

so , here goes.

I've made a batch of agar jars, ( pint jars, slanted )

Now, being a new dumbass, i microwaved my agar, corn syrup, honey mix and poured them in my jars with lids sealed, the agar being very hot, made the lids pop and seal up.

The problem is this, since the agar was so hot, it condensed and created water vapor in the jars and water droplets formed on the surface of the agar, it still solidified ok, but has water droplets running around.

Am i destined for failure, or would this still be ok???

Thanks in advance!!

ps: Yes, i've read the faq's, teks, etc etc...... so if someone is more adept at the search function than my stupid self, pls help me out!!

Poop.

Why are you making slanted pint jars? If you are making agar in pint jars, just turn the jars upside down when incubating. Be more specific. I really don't know what you are doing, exactly.

oops.. sorry

i used jars cuz i could not find petri plates.

I nuked my agar mix in a pint jar, cleaned 6 more and tipped them on their sides ( slanted ) then poured a small amout into the 6 jars, put on the lids and rings and let them cool off...

make sense ???

They were bleached clean, rinsed well, and all done in my kitchen, no glovebox,  but quick maneuvering....

I did them up over 2 weeks ago, been in the fridge ever since, no contams showing in them yet, all nice an clear!! but with condensation in them...

Fun thing is that you open them up fromthe side, so no downward drafts!!!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!  :crazy:

poops.
