Malt Agar is used for the cultivation of fungi. Malt media for yeasts and molds have been used for many years. In 1919, Reddish prepared a satisfactory substitute for beer wort from malt extract. Thom and Church used Reddish's medium for their studies of aspergilli. Malt Agar was employed by Fullmer and Grimes during studies of yeasts on synthetic media. Malt Agar is specified in standard methods for the examination of yeasts and molds.
