I prefer 10 g/l NaCl, but there are E. coli constructs with different 
permeability mutations that appear to do 'better' using 5 g/l.  I can't 
explain why - I can only speculate as to possible osmotic or cell wall/ 
membrane-related effects.  You may have to try it both ways.  If anyone 
else cares to elucidate on this matter, I'd also like to hear about it.
