PCR amplification from phage plugs

Has anyone done PCR directly on lysates obtained from coring a lambda
plaque into SM buffer?  I'd like to remove inserts from the Okkema lambda
gt11 library using primers flanking the EcoRI site in the Bgal coding
region, and am having difficulty getting PCR products this way (i.e. by
taking 1 uL of supernatant from a lambda plaque).

I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions.
