 Members of the genus Pediococcus are Gram-positive cocci that produce lactic acid as their primary byproduct of carbohydrate metabolism.  Normally associated with plants, some species are important in silage fermentation and vegetable fermentations.  Some species are responsible for beer spoilage, and can be resistant to the antimicrobial compounds found in hops.
