1 Dissolve ingredients except methanol, bicarbonate, cysteine and sulfide. Adjust pH of medium to 7.2 and sparge with 100% N2 gas for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic. Then dispense medium under same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes to 30% v/v of their volume and autoclave. Add methanol, cysteine and sulfide from sterile anoxic stock solutions prepared under 100% N2 gas and bicarbonate from a sterile anoxic stock solution prepared under 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture. Prior to use check pH of complete medium and adjust to 7.6, if necessary.
2 After inoculation, add sterile 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture to 0.5 bar overpressure. After growth becomes visible overpressure of 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture can be increased to 1 bar.
3 Note: Use 10% (v/v) as inoculum.

1 Add 0.4% yeast extract to sludge from an anaerobic digester, and after gassing with nitrogen gas for a few minutes incubate it at 37°C for 24 hours. Then centrifuge the sludge at 13000 g and autoclave the resulting, clear supernatant in screw-capped vessels under nitrogen gas. The sludge fluid can be stored at 8-12°C in the dark.
