<Could someone tell me the recipe of EC broth? Does it contain lactose, 
how much?

Thank you in advance.>

You're welcome.  :-) Here is the recipe, according to the Great God Difco:

Per liter of DI H2O, add:

Tryptose, 20 g
*Lactose, 5 g*
Bacto Bile Salts No. 3, 1.5 g
Dipotassium Phosphate, 4 g
Monopotassium Phosphate, 1.5 g
NaCl, 5 g

Final pH = 6.9 +/- 0.2


Mycelium is Yourcelium.  :-)
