5.1.1 - Inhibitors in Brewery Microbiology

The following list contains details of inhibitors that have been reported to be valuable in the selective growth of brewery organisms. Some ready-to-use media contain inhibitors included by the manufacturer. Others are base media where inhibitors must be added with due regard to heat sensitivity. Workers should pay careful attention to the safety and hazard information supplied by the manufacturer when handling these chemicals.
