FastOrange Brett Agar (12 x 170 mL)
- Easily detect Brettanomyces yeasts by visible color change
- Ideal for quality control in the brewing or winemaking process, and in packaged products

PIKA FastOrange Brett Agar is a culture medium developed to detect Brettanomyces contamination in beer and wine. It may be used both in brewing & winemaking processes, and for the quality control of packaged products. The media selectively grows Brettanomyces while suppressing the growth of bacteria and S. cerevisiae. A visible color change from violet to yellow occurs upon growth of Brett, allowing the spoiler to be positively identified.
Fast Orange Brett Agar is provided sterile in ready-to-use bottles. Simply heat the agar in a water bath or microwave, and pour your plates. No autoclaving is necessary.
