    Awesome tek! I got agar and PP test tubes on the way I'll be sure to give this a few runs!

    This is pretty much the Tek I use.

    My last batch of vacutainers all warped. Even though they were in a jar with water. Crazy looking. I tossed them and will probably stick to glass from now on.

    ^^^^yup. Works like a charm.
    Got tired of the jars though and went with this cheap rack. :link:

    Excellent tek but personally, or rather using Dehydrated Malt Extract Agar alone, I had better results simmering and bottling the agar rather than cold mixing it.

    Hello! Sorry for necro but just had a question - has anyone tried using the boiled woodstick water in place of the regular water for the agar mixtures? If not , do you think this would add some beneficial nutrients to the agar?

    PS. Long time lurker, first post!!:brider: So much useful information here. I hope i can contribute in a positive way.

    Edit** found a thread on mycotopia suggesting against using wood water https://mycotopia.net/topic/96302-pda-agar-recipe-with-a-twist-trial/
