These plates are used for the detection of all yeast contamination found in your brew.
Each quadrant is made up of different media that detect various species of yeast.
• Quadrant 1: Lin’s Cupric Sulfate Media (LCSM) detects non-Saccharomyces
wild yeast and inhibits the growth of brewer’s yeast.
•Quadrant 2: Lin’s Wild Yeast Media (LWYM) detects all wild yeast including wild Saccharomyces
strains and inhibits brewer’s yeast.
•Quadrant 3: Lysine Media (LM) detects all wild yeast strains, including strains that may not grow on the Lin’s media.
•Quadrant 4: Wallerstein Nutrient Media (WLN) is non-selective and detects all wild yeast, pitching yeast and some bacterial strains that are common brew contaminants.
If the test is positive, you can send the plate to our lab for microbial identification. Purchase includes 1 FREE microbial identification performed at Brew Plate Labs. More detailed information can be found at www.BrewPlate.com
