Grows all lactic acid, acetic acid, and anaerobic spoilers, with faster growth than NBB, while suppressing growth of brewer's yeast.

Samples are added to Fast Orange B in a 1:1 ratio, and incubated at 25 °C. Samples can be processed by PCR after 2 days enrichment, or growth can be detected by visible color change after 3-7 days.
