In short:
- Dilute (in 10 fold increments)
- Plate (a known volume, on a rich non selective medium, if possible in triplicates)
- Count (the colonies, on plate with between 30 and 300 colonies, and with the average and the dilution factor you can compare the number of colonies per inoculum in your different conditions)
