This study was carried out at the Fermentation Tech nology Institute of the University of Hohenheim. The aim of the study was to evaluate the potential of hop acids as natural anti bacterials in distillery mashes for alcoholic fermentation. LactoStabTM and IsoStabTM were investigated for their effect on growth and lactic acid production by two selected strains of lac tobacilli. The potential of improving ethanol yields by use of LactoStabTM and IsoStabTM du ring alcoholic fermentation of wheat…

Assessment of antibiotic resistance from long-term bacterial exposure to antibiotics commonly used in fuel ethanol production

Results indicate that antibiotic resistance in two common Lactobacillus strains does not develop from sublethal exposure to virginiamycin after 69 days of exposure, but resistance can be developed with sub lethal exposure to penicillin G.

Progress in the development of methods used for the abatement of microbial contaminants in ethanol fermentations: a review

Biofuel research and development roadmap is currently underway in several countries and is expected to pave a way for the establishment of a viable renewable energy sector that can compete with

USO DE ANTIBIÓTICOS CONVENCIONAIS E ANTIMICROBIANOS A BASE DE LÚPULO NO CONTROLE DA INFECÇÃO BACTERIANA EM FERMENTAÇÃO ALCOÓLICA

Os resultados mostraram that os antimicrobianos a base of lupulo podem substituir os antibioticos convencionais (Kamoran, Alcapen e Corstan), pois nao houve diferenca estatistica entre os tratamentos.

Use of virginiamycin to control the growth of lactic acid bacteria during alcohol fermentation

Results showed a variation in sensitivity to virginiamycin between the different strains tested and also a possible reduction in effectiveness of virginiamYcin over prolonged incubation in wheat mash, especially in the absence of yeast.

Combined effect of hop resins and sodium hexametaphosphate against certain strains of Escherichia coli.

The combined antimicrobial effects of hop resins with sodium hexametaphosphate, glycerol monocaprate, and lysozyme were investigated aiming to make an effective agent against Escherichia coli, and the combination exhibited strong antimicrobial activity against E. coli, but no effect was found in combinations of hop Resins with the other agents.

Aspects of the resistance of lactic acid bacteria to hop bitter acids

No other features correlated with hop resistance, including cell morphology, colony morphology, pH range for growth, sugar utilization profile, products of metabolism, manganese requirement and sensitivity to superoxide radicals, expression of cellular proteins, and resistance or sensitivity to selected antibacterial agents are found.

Conversion of Unsaturated Fatty Acids to Precursors of γ-Lactones by Lactic Acid Bacteria during the Production of Malt Whisky

We have previously reported that γ-decalactone and γ-dodecalactone contribute to the sweet and fatty flavor and quality of malt whisky. The mechanism by which these lactones are formed in malt whisky

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF HOP BITTER RESINS DERIVED FROM RECOVERED HOPPED WORT

There was no evidence of centrate induced plasmolysis at any centrate level, measured either spectrophometrically or as potassium efflux from cells, despite the observation that cells exposed to even the lowest centrate levels were non-culturable on solid media.

Ionophoric action of trans-isohumulone on Lactobacillus brevis

Compounds (e.g. trans-isohumulone) derived from flowers of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus L.) protect beer from spoilage and are suggested to act as an ionophore of the mobile-carrier type, causing electroneutral exchange of H+ for divalent cations such as Mn2+.
