If you can get the Acetobacter to grow in suspended culture, any of the methods
mentioned will work. But I believe Acetobacter grows mostly as a pellicle on
the surface of liquids. This presents a much tougher problem. If surface growth
is what you are dealing with you should look into the biofilm literature. You
might also want to have alook at Pirt's book on Microbial Cultivation for some
background information.
