FastOrange Wild Yeast Bouillon Broth
Detect wild yeasts in your production process with FastOrange Wild Yeast Bouillon Broth. This culture medium is especially useful for specific detection of wild yeasts – yeasts other than the typical brewing yeast strains – in the production line or surrounding environment. A broad array of wild yeasts grow in the medium, including S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus, Brettanomyces (Dekkera), as well as other Saccharomyces and non-Saccharomyces wild yeasts,and are detected by visible growth and color change.
Simply mix your sample with PIKA FastOrange Wild Yeast Bouillon, incubate, and check for a color change. For specific detection of S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus, incubate at 35 °C (95 °F).
The principle of the differentiation is described in EBC method 220.127.116.11 Saccharomyces Wild Yeasts, Cu-differentiation.
