Have any Questions?

Has anybody had definitive experience with Leuconostoc?  i'm reading "introduction to sugarcane techonology" and it references Leuconostoc as a common infection that causes a slime or jelly-like build up.  It's in the family with Lacto. 


I love the funk, but that's not a common one.

Ropiness and slime in fermentation is also common with Pediococcus.  In fact, nearly always in brewing settings.  The wild card, as you say, is the sugarcane.  Leuc. is found in vegetative settings.

Lots of those microbes fall under the lactic acid producing umbrella, but are genetically different.
