Hello Everyone

This is my first post.


I am having quite the problematic bug here.


I have been trying with no success to grow Acetobacter pasteurianus.


First I have tried with this broth 

  • 500ml 

7.5g of malt extract

2.5g of yeast extract

add 470ml of water

and autoclave


then add 30ml of ethanol 50% filtered

when it left the autoclave broth was filled with a precipitate


grow at 26C

but had no growth


  • tried this one instead 1L

peptone 3g

yeast extract 5g

mannitol 25g

grow at 28C with no luck


tried after to grow it at 26C but also with no luck


  • I am trying to get CaCO3 so I could try a different one


glucose 100g

yeast 10g

CaCO3 20g

pH 6.8


Anyone can suggest something to help me with this?


I am probably doing something wrong!!!



Thank you

Adriana Reis
