 :lulz: I particularly enjoy your not-so-subtle reference to Shake-&-Bake.

Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Day 1 Part 2:
Water Sample Incubation

Ingredients:
5 mL of septic water
5 mL of BHI Broth
1 mL of Log Phase Enterococcus from Part 1

Gently agitate tube of septic water by hand. Vortexing too vigorously might knock the little feet off phage present. In 15 mL tube, combine BHI broth, septic water, and log phase bacteria. Note that chunks of poop will block up the pipette. Slowly pipette back into sample to remove blockage. Don't jam down on it unless you want to risk getting what is now 2 month old poop water all over the prep area. When all ingredients have been combined bake for 8 hours at 37C.*

*I ain't staying here til 10:45 pm, so when I leave around 8 pm, I'm going to remove the tubes from the incubator and leave them in my drawer overnight.
