Final Report - BRETT MONITORING (Development of Diagnosis Tools for Brettanomyce Monitoring)

Project ID: 508445
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the BRETT MONITORING project which derives its name from Brettanomyces, a type of yeast which plays a significant role in flavour production in beer and wine. Problems due to Brettanomyces appear mostly during storage and aging of wine. The report runs the reader through three kits designed to detect this yeast. These three kits make it possible for the producers to carry out analyses of Brettanomyces detection by themselves. Today the results of these kits are very promising but in the current state of the results, none of the three methods is usable and commercially viable and the report concludes that Research and development (R&D) still needs to be done.
