HI Cloud,

You can go for Luria Bertani media (LB) for a start. This can be used for liquid cultures and also for plating out in petri plates for streaking and spreading stuff. You can make it easity in your lab using tryptophan, yeast extract, glucose etc. which you'll find quite easily in your lab. It should culture most of the bactreia in your film in corroding pipe. Try it out and if you encounter any problems, don't hesitate to write back to me.

Kind Regards,
