FastOrange Brett Agar
Detect super–attenuating Brettanomyces yeasts (Dekkera) throughout the whole production process by simply enriching your sample on a FastOrange BRETT Agar plate. The ready-made agar specifically encourages growth of Brettanomyces yeast strains while suppressing growth of other yeast groups as well as bacteria.
Samples contaminated with Brettanomyces are easily detected with the naked eye since the Brettanomyces yeasts grow up to colonies, accompanied by a color change in the medium from violet to yellow. Determine the cells/mL concentration of Brettanomyces by counting the colonies relative to the plated volume.
For wild yeast brewers, PIKA FastOrange® BRETT Agar is also convenient for isolating active Brettanomyces strains from mixed cultures.
