MEB has a high carbohydrate and protein content, making it an ideal medium for the growth of fungi and yeasts. It is often used for the cultivation of fungi and yeasts in suspension, and for the preparation of inocula for transfer to solid media, such as Millipore Malt Extract Agar (MEA).

To prepare MEB, the dehydrated medium is typically mixed with water and heated to dissolve the ingredients. The medium is then sterilized by autoclaving and distributed into sterile containers, such as test tubes or flasks, where it can be inoculated with microorganisms.
