Growth on solid versus liquid medium???

I recently received a freeze-dried culture of Iodobacter
fluviatile from ATCC.  The recommended medium is "3" which
is Nutrient Agar.  To grow this culture in liquid medium,
can I just use nutrient *broth*?  

Sorry, I am kind of unfamiliar with these rich media.  I
am used to using mineral medium (growing methanogens,
SRB, and syntrophic VFA degraders).  I know this should
be much easier, but I don't want to screw it up!

Please respond via email, since I check it more frequently
than this newsgroup.

Thanks very much in  advance!
