Tella is widely brewed in Ethiopia. The quality may be deteriorated by microbial contaminants. Determination of profile of spoilage microorganisms in tella, bittering agents and antimicrobial activity of gesho are important. Therefore, the objective was to determine microbial dynamics of tella phases, bittering agents and the antimicrobial activity of gesho. Tella fermentation was carried out using traditional methods. Enumeration of microorganisms were carried out using Malt, MaconKey, Man… Expand
