Will it kill Brett and bacteria as well?


No, luckily.

Kill? As in "produce something that will actively inhibit the growth of or is toxic to other organisms"?

Yep: "The mitochondria of some yeast strains have the ability to produce a small 1100 MW protein that is guided through the cell wall and attaches itself to the cell wall of another strain of yeast disrupting the magnesium metabolism resulting in the death of the cell."

Science FTW! I was expecting it to just be a fast metabolism thing, but this is way cooler.
