    The only thing I would change is to have some instructions with the agar – saves me a little bit of effort calculating quantities online for a small amount but that’s a total nitpick, everything was fine!

      Thanks for your feedback!

      We’ve added some instructions to the product description for usage and dividing for smaller batches.

      We’ve also just changed our packaging – we now use resealable stand-up pouches to make it easier to use a little at a time!
