Barley Malt: yes, hopefully you bought the lightest colored variety
Peptic enzyme: nope, wrong shit. Peptone is "optional" anyway. I don't know of a ready source to check.
Yeast nutrient: nope, wrong shit. What you want is "nutritional yeast" or "brewers yeast" or "yeast extract". All available at most healthfood shops

The yeast that I bought was from a brew suppy store. It is for brewing, small white balls.

Why is it that we kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong?

This was recently discussed in advanced cult. Yeast nutrient is not yeast. It is a chemical nitrogen source to feed the nitrogen needs of yeast as it ferments sugars. Not at all the same thing. What you need is dried yeast, usually harvested by filtering it out of beer after it has fermented the beer. It looks like yellow, flakey powder.

BTW, if you are looking for a substitute for agar in the recipe, try this thread: http://www.shroomery.org/ubbnoncgi/Forum2/HTML/007499.html
Arrowroot powder can be made into a media usable like agar but cheaper and easier to find. It is different though in that once made and cooked it will not remelt. It has some advantages and some disadvantages compared to agar depending on the application.
