PIKA FastOrange® Wild Yeast Bouillon

205,00 zzgl. MwSt. / plus sales tax

PIKA FastOrange® Wild Yeast Enrichment Bouillon is a culture medium which was specifically developed for the detection of wild yeasts in breweries and wineries. The ingredients are optimized to quickly grow both non-Saccharomyces and Saccharomyces wild yeasts, including S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus and Brettanomyces (Dekkera) yeasts. Just add broth to your sample and incubate for growth of wild yeasts.


FastOrange® Wild Yeast medium selectively grows non-brewing yeasts while the typical brewing strains are inhibited. Mix your sample with FastOrange® Wild Yeast broth and easily detect wild yeasts within your brewers yeast. For more specific detection of S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus, incubate your sample at a temperature of 35-37 °C.

The principle of the selectivity is based on the EBC method Saccharomyces Wild Yeasts, Cu-differentiation which describes the use of nutrient media supplemented with copper sulphate to inhibit the growth of brewers’ yeast. Typical brewing yeast strains are sensitive for copper ions and do not grow in FastOrange® Wild Yeast medium while wild yeasts show a higher resistance and grow up to detectable concentration.
