To use the dry agar mix we sell you will measure out 20 grams or of the dry mix. Bring about 500 to 600 ml of water to a gentle boil. Dump in the agar mix by gently spreading it around with a shaking motion as opposed to just dumping it all in or it may clump up on you. Gently simmer and stir constantly for 10 minuets or until full dissolved. Pour liquid agar in beaker or equivalent and sterilize at 15 psi for 30 minuets. Allow to cool for approximately 1 hour inside of the pressure cooker. Pour sterilized agar into petri dishes as desired. This recipe should fill twenty 15 X 100 petri dishes.
