Malt Extract Agar is a medium for the isolation of many yeasts and moulds. The low pH inhibits most bacteria and further selectivity can be achieved by lowering the pH even more by adding Lactic Acid to the molten cooled, medium. It should be noted that excess heating of the medium could result in hydrolysis of the agar resulting in softening of the agar.
