I performed conjugal matings between lactic acid bacteria for my
graduate work.  All you do is mix the donor and recipient at various
ratios, vortex, and collect on a filter.  Incubate the filter cell
side up O/N at 37 C.  Next day, stuff the filter in a sln and vortex,
plate on selective medium!  A reference for my technique:

Shrago, AW et al.  Applied and Environ. Microbiol. 1986. Vol. 52
Number 3, p. 574.

You will find additional references in the lit. cited!

Hope this helps!!!
