I'm thinking of trying Agar. I have a container of Malt Extract Agar. I read the Agar Tek and was wondering if insted of mixing the Agar in a big jar and then poring it into petri dishes, I could just mix it and then pour it into my small jars with a filter disk on top and then pressure cook the jars? Then after they cool I could inoculate them through the filter disk keeping contaminents out. Any body think this will work?

Yeh sounds good. Just make sure those jars can withstand pressure cooking and that you can get a blade in to remove mycelium easily.

That?s the way I do it right now and it works good. It?s a nice way to skip a step in agar preparation, specially if you don?t own a flowhood and pouring it from a flask to the dishes implies an added risk.
