I like your CV recipe, but I have a question. Lots of crystals turn up in
the gram stain. Students think they are beautiful bacteria! What do I need
to filter to rid the CV of crystals, the end product or one of the
ingredients. Do you filter? If I went the easiest route and let it drip
through filter paper, what porosity would you suggest?
Hoping you can help,
