Why should you test?

            Beer, due to its ethanol content, low pH, high carbon dioxide, and extremely low oxygen content is a poor and rather hostile environment for the growth of most microorganisms. However, some bacterial and yeast strains are able to spoil beer and grow under these harsh conditions. These include both Gram-positive and Gram-negative strains, such as Lactobacillus, Pediococcus and Zymomonas spp.
