This is a cocci bacteria known for its souring capabilities through the production of lactic acid. Perfect to add to any sour program, it is a high diacetyl producer and slow growing.
Our bacteria strains are now being propagated in an optimized, strain-specific growth media. This proprietary media, which is lighter in color, allows for better growth and viability of our pure cultures resulting in higher cell concentrations. Due to the improved cell concentration, we suggest utilizing the below pitch rate:
Pediococcus: contains >100 million cells/mL
Recommended Pitch Rate:
Secondary: 1 Liter per 10hL
*White Labs recommends pitching based on intended dosage rates as opposed to actual cell concentrations since these can vary slightly
