1 Dissolve ingredients (except bicarbonate, vitamins, sulfur and sulfide), then sparge medium with 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic and adjust pH to 5.5 with H2SO4. Dispense under same gas atmosphere in suitable culture vessels (e.g. 20 ml of the medium in 100 ml serum bottles) and autoclave. Steam sulfur for 3 hours on each of 3 successive days. Aseptically mix the sterilized sulfur with the sterile medium while retaining anoxic conditions. Add vitamins from an anoxic stock solution prepared under 100% N2 gas atmosphere and sterilized by filtration and bicarbonate from a sterile anoxic stock solution prepared under 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture. Prior to inoculation add sulfide from a sterile anoxic stock solution prepared under 100% N2 gas atmosphere. Check pH and adjust to 5.5, if necessary.
2 After inoculation pressurize vials to 1 bar overpressure with sterile 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture.
