The Brew³: This lab analysis is a comprehensive package utilizing our GeneDisc Rapid Microbiology System (Pall). In addition, we can utilize selective plating, if required, for both brewing yeast and possible beer spoiling organisms. Analysis is possible for finished beer, yeast slurries, or any samples during fermentation. Pasteurization samples will have an additional enrichment to verify effectiveness of pasteurization through microbiological identification. The species identified through this PCR analysis include:

  • Lactobacillus group: L. casei, L. paracasei, L. coryniformis, L. rossiae, L. parabuchneri (= frigidus), L. perolens, and L. plantarum
