Brew Plate™ Bulk Sleeve - Funk Quad Plate (Bioplast Manufacturing)
These plates are used for the detection of all yeasts and bacteria found in your funky brew.
- Allows the brewer to detect a broad collection of wild yeast strains
- Plated agar
- Send in the sample to Brew Plate Laboratories for microbe identification
Each quadrant is made up of different media that detects various species.
Quadrant 1: Wallerstein Nutrient Media (WLN) is non-selective and detects all wild yeast, pitching yeast and some bacterial strains that are common in brew.
Quadrant 2: Lee's Multi-Differential Agar (LMDA) detects lactic acid producing bacteria including Lactobacillus and Acetobacter species. Acid producers are easily detected by a change in the media color from green to yellow.
Quadrant 3: Hsu's Lactobacillus/Pedioccocus Agar (HLP) detects Lactobacillus and Pediococcusbacteria. For optimal growth, an anaerobic gas generator sachet should be used during incubation.
Quadrant 4: Lin's Cupric Sulfate Media (LCSM) detects non-Saccharomyces wild yeast and inhibits the growth of brewer's yeast.
