pediococcus

Pediococcus is a genus of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) that play a crucial role in the development of traditional Lambic and Gueuze, as well as other sour ales. Pedio. are prodigious lactic acid producing organisms and are the primary drivers of acidification in traditional Lambic and Gueuze. In contrast to other LAB, all known Pedio. are homofermentative organisms, meaning that lactic acid alone is produced through the fermentation of a carbon source. Pedio. species often produce extracellular polysaccharides (known colloquially as “Slime”) and the off flavor compound diacetyl as byproducts of their activity in beer. Brettanomyces is crucial for the elimination of this “sickness” caused by Pedio., The activity of Brettanomyce
