15ml per plate; 6.4g LB agar in 200ml water in 500ml flask or bottle, makes 8-10 plates after microwaving for 2-10min. Make sure to keep a close eye on the agar while boiling! Lower microwave power if boiling to vigourously. Make sure to leave plenty of space in the container to avoid boiling over. Beaker or cylindrical bottle may be more resistant to boiling over than flask, because it gives more space for bubbles to pop.
