Summary
Powdered medium is a vital part of the microbiological analysis conducted in the brewing industry to determine the presence of spoiling and nonspoiling bacteria. It is important to monitor bacterial growth throughout the brewing process to maintain proper hygiene and to detect the presence of bacteria early so that it can be addressed. In addition to proper preparation, it is important to select the appropriate medium for the chosen bacterial analysis. This instructional video clearly demonstrates the proper method for preparing powdered medium, regardless of the bacterial analysis being performed.
