How long?  Method 1) on plates in refrig, tightly wrapped,, about a year
                                2) Lyophilized   years and years-decades.
                                3)  10 percent glycerol stocks frozen and
stored at -80 c.   Good for decades as long as
                                        freezer lasts.
"Best" is a matter of equipment at hand and need.
