quick agar question
    #8801779 - 08/20/08 06:38 PM (9 years, 11 months ago)

i have about 600 ml's or so of solitified agar that's been sitting in my fridge for a few months now that a acuired through a trade.  i was wondering what needs to be done to be able to use this stuff?

do i heat it up in some water to make it liquid again?

if so, how long do i wait before i can pour it?  right when im able to handle it?

thanks for the help guys.

You're correct. Place the jar of solidified agar in some hot water (above 85C) until it returns to its liquid state. As soon as the agar has returned to liquid and is pourable you can use it.

Here is a great article on the heating and reheating of agar, which specifically highlights the change in viscosity when you reheat agar and gelling properties:

Enjoy.
