I recently used the BLOTTO in my PCR reaction to amplify various genes from 
soil DNA extracts. It works generally well in the presence of some 
possible poly-phenolics compounds in brown colour.

I understand some of you may be interested in our
experience with using BLOTTO (skim milk) in the
PCR mix to minimize inhibition due to the
presence of plant compounds.  It was published in
Nuc. Acids. Res. 23 (1995), 2567-8.  I'd be
interested to hear how well it works for you, or
doesn't.
