Pediococcus damnosus

SKU: Pediococcus damnosus
Category: Bacteria
Strain: Bacteria

Also known as “pedio”. A lactic acid producing bacteria used in the production of sour beers. A top choice for secondary barrel aged beers. This bacteria will produce sourness over time, and may cause “ropiness” that goes away with extended aging. Diacetyl production is commo with pedio, so it is often recommended to pitch with a mixed culture containing brettanomyces to break it down.
