Details

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.

good for culturing yeast
I culture yeast to save money, and to experiment. Its a good product that works well for me. It's a full mix and I don't have to add in additional nutrients. You can make your own for less, but it saves some of the hassle.

Fro my yeast lab
I use this Agar to grow yeast samples I take from my beers. It's a good growth medium, and has more nutrients than standard agar, so I don't have to add in anything else.

Make my own yeast
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.

Its a luxury agar
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.

Feed your yeast colonies
Its a good product that works well. If you are growing colonies and setting up slants this si a good growth medium.

Why buy yeast when i can make my own
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.

In the long run it's a money saver
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.

Just use Agar Agar
I tried this and don't see any benefit of regular, and less expensive Agar. This is a good product, it works, I just think its expensive.

Great product
This is a great product and it works well. I'd recommend to anyone looking to make slants for yeast storage.

For culturing yeast
I have had success culturing yeast using this Agar. This is a good product, it works,but its expensive. The nice thing about Universal Beer Agar is that its a full mix with no need for separate bottles for additional nutrients.
