Agar ???
    #2386065 - 02/28/04 06:43 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

1.- I can?t find malt extract and would like to know if malt syrup will do the job. If so, should I use the same amount, like 20 gr./per litre?
2.- Is there any difference in adding the optional 2 gr. yeast and not doing it? Would some dried bread/bakery yeast work ?
3.- Can I use some small canning jars as petri dishes, avoiding this way the "pouring the agar into plates step" after Pcing?

Thanks

Malt syrup contains water, thus you will have to use a bit more than 20 gram.

2.- Is there any difference in adding the optional 2 gr. yeast and not doing it?
Yeast give a healthier growth.

>Would some dried bread/bakery yeast work ?
Yes, pre-cook it for an hour before use to kill it(when I didn?t do this, and only pressure cookd it for 20 minutes, I got whole batches contaminated with yeast, until I connecte the use of life yeast to it).

>3.- Can I use some small canning jars as petri dishes, avoiding this way
>the "pouring the agar into plates step" after Pcing?

Yes.

Malt syrup: How about trying to evaporate all the containing water of the syrup prior to utilization ?
Yeast: Pre-cook disolved in water or in a dry manner maybe using a microwave?
Canning jars: Should I put some kind of filter for air exchange as if I were doing some grains (polyfill, tyvek)?

Thank you Anno

Why? The water content of malt syrup is around 20% of water, so simply add some more to compensate for this.

>Yeast: Pre-cook disolved in water or in a dry manner maybe using a microwave?
dissolved.


>Canning jars: Should I put some kind of filter for air exchange as if I were doing some grains (polyfill, tyvek)?

Yes, this can?t be bad.
