Off the top of my head:

Grow the organism in skim milk + 1% yeast extract + 1% glucose.

After incubation to early stationary phase, subculture 10% into fresh medium and freeze dry.

    I am about to commence freeze drying cultures of Bifidobacterium, and as I have never attempted to do this before, I am unsure as to what to do.  Any advice, eg the addition of skim milk powder etc, will be gratefully received.
