Gelatin liquifies at room temp. Think about a bowl of jello that sits out on a warm day. I had the same idea a while back. It kinda worked. I ended up with a semi solid/liquid media. Spores would germinate on it, but using it for inoculation is pretty difficult.

Just stick with the agar. Or you could try making BRF paste. It works just as good as agar IMO.

knox unflavored gelatin will not liquify at room temp. i once used it to culture some sort of unknown fungus for identification. for a biology experiment using the Gelatin, Malt, sugar, and potato water. worked just fine.

Aha! Sounds like the trick might be to make the gelatine firmer than jello so it stays gelled.
Also agar is nutrious (in response to Stellarblue) it has 0g protein but it does have carbs and sodium.
I have since found agar,I didn't realize that it takes such a small amount! I bought an ounce which should last me quite a while!
Thanks for all the replies
