Universal Beer Agar is a basal medium to which beer is added. The characteristics of Universal Beer Agar are closer to the natural environmental conditions found in the typical brewery. It supports growth of more varieties of lactic acid bacteria and yields larger colonies in a shorter time than traditional brewers medium. Due to the presence of beer in the medium, it is selective for growth of microorganisms that have adapted themselves to existent conditions in the brewery.

W grow our own yeast, for 6 generations. Then the yeast is mutated enough we dump it. This agar is suitable for growing your own cultures, then stepping them up for a starter.
I've been using the agar to grow small colonies that I freeze. Then I grow them in a 50ML beaker, and then in a 1 liter starter, gradually earning back my investment.
Its a good product that works well. If you are growing colonies and setting up slants this si a good growth medium.
This is a good product, just expensive. I've used this package and regular agar and added in some nutrients and didn't see a difference. I can handle adding in nutrients one time, if it saves me money.
I am trying to master growing my own yeast so I no longer have to buy yeast at $7 a package. I got some equipment and use the agar to grow the cultures. Even if I don't save money, it's kind of fun. I use this agar because it has all the nutrients, and it's not like I need gallons of it.
