cheap chinese agar PART2
    #865847 - 09/05/02 05:32 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

OKay, I have found agar at a Chinese grocery store:

As you can see.. it looks like strips of wrinkly cellophane. Do I use this exactly the same as lab-grade agar? ie. about 1g per dish. Are there any differences (apart from quality and appearance)?

Also, if I can only get non-sterile petri dishes, is it best to sterilise the dishes before pouring the agar, or is it possible to make up the agar, pour it into the dishes, then sterilise?

Both is possible, the second way can make a lot of mess, since the molen agar is spilled very easily....
