I sometimes just make my PCR mixture (except for the DNA) then take a
pipet with a yellow tip, touch a bacerial colony with the tip and then
pipet up and down in the PCR mixture a few times, run the PCR. Can't
remember any time it didn't work for me. Try that along with a few of
all the other suggestions. Then choose the method you like best.
