Sterilising Agar

Can you skip PC'ing the agar? Since it's boiling when you mix it can't you just pour it directly to the plates? Or let it harden in a sealed jar,then heat the jar in a pan of water until it reliquifies?

The above is just like,my opinion man

Boiling agar does not get it hot enough to kill the bacterial spores. You still need to PC it.

I use peroxidated agar without a PC. I boil the water add the agar and stuff, mix it, then put it in a pot of boiling water with a lid on it for an hour.

You can't germinate spores on peroxidated agar, but you can germinate in BRF and cut a piece out and put it on the agar.

You must sterilize it .
You can reheat to liquify again then pour , but is best to make and use what you have planned in one sitting . But make sure it is kept sealed and cool until you use it , and use ASAP .
PC or AC for 30-40 min , let cool till you can hold jar in bare hand , pour into petris , let solidify , then inoc with spores . IMO , is best to let dishes sit around in dark , clean place for one to two days before inocing . That way you know you have uncontaminated dishes of agar prior to inocing with spores .
Store unused agar in fridge , when want to use again put into a pot of hot water for 20-30 min or until liquid that can be shaken up to remix , then pour as usuall .
Good Luck
