Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are unwanted in finished cider and can produce off flavours. For unfiltered or barrel samples the sample is applied directly to selective media and plate colonies counted. Results are expressed as cfu/mL (colony forming units per mL). All plating is conducted under strict quality assurance protocols.
DIRECT PLATING 10mL of sample required.
MEMBRANE FILTRATION 750mL of sample required.
