It is well known that one of the most common forms of beer infection is acidification by lactic acid bacteria. It may be realistic to assume that most (small) breweries once in a while may suffer from the unwanted growth of these bacteria in wort, during bottling or in casks. However acidification by lactic acid bacteria is a very natural process to adjust the pH of the malt or the wort (Derdelinckx et al., 1994) and the presence of lactic acid in beer is not always to be considered as…

Review: Brettanomyces yeasts in beer technology
Today, the use of non-standard types of yeast, which include Brettanomyces, is becoming increasingly popular in the food industry. They are tolerant to low pH, have a high-effective metabolism, and
Brewer’s yeast in controlled and uncontrolled fermentations, with a focus on novel, nonconventional, and superior strains
This review addresses the following topics: controlled and uncontrolled fermentations, and advances in the selection of novel, nonconventional, and superior strains for beer.
The Microbial Diversity of Traditional Spontaneously Fermented Lambic Beer
The microbiota involved in the fermentation of lambic beers is determined by sampling two fermentation batches during two years in the most traditional lambic brewery of Belgium, using culture-dependent and culture-independent methods.
Microbial Dynamics in Traditional and Modern Sour Beer Production
The use of selected pure cultures of microorganisms with desirable properties in conjunction with careful application of processing steps facilitates the production of sour beer with a higher level of process control and more rapid fermentation compared to traditional methods.
Dekkera bruxellensis - a competitive yeast for ethanol production from conventional and non-conventional substrates
The results show that D. bruxellensis is a competitive yeast owing to its energy-efficient metabolism in glucose-limited conditions, and can act as production yeast for ethanol production from both first- and second-generation substrates under conditions of optimal aeration and nutrient supply.
Dekkera bruxellensis--spoilage yeast with biotechnological potential, and a model for yeast evolution, physiology and competitiveness.
This review tries to summarize the latest discoveries about evolution, physiology and metabolism, and biotechnological potential of D. bruxellensis.
The Interior Surfaces of Wooden Barrels Are an Additional Microbial Inoculation Source for Lambic Beer Production
To clarify the role of casks and foeders as additional microbial inoculation sources, it was important to determine the influence of the barrel characteristics and the cleaning procedures on the microbial communities of the interior barrel surfaces, which helped to elucidate the complex spontaneous lambic beer fermentation and maturation process.
Wort Substrate Consumption and Metabolite Production During Lambic Beer Fermentation and Maturation Explain the Successive Growth of Specific Bacterial and Yeast Species
The present study combined high-throughput culture-dependent plating and culture-independent amplicon sequencing with a metabolite target analysis to systematically dissect the identity, evolution,
Impact of volatile phenols and their precursors on wine quality and control measures of Brettanomyces/Dekkera yeasts
Volatile phenols are aromatic compounds and one of the key molecules responsible for olfactory defects in wine. The yeast genus Brettanomyces is the only major microorganism that has the ability to
