Woah, interesting. Sometimes it's hard to remember that despite being made for thousands of
years, there are still things to discover about how brewing works...The S. cerevisiae yeast
genome was seque...

I would imagine the % attenuation ranges are meant to estimate expected metabolism of sugars in
your unfermented wort, ie; conversion of total fermentables, not conversion of leftovers....

And I would guess that what they would find is that it's the overall diet pattern of people who
eat lots of fructose that is the problem, notthe fructose itself. RayActually, the "solid"

I don't suppose it will do any good to combat the solidlyentrenched suburban myth, but I'll try
anyway....Unless you have the fructose malabsorption problem (wikipediasays 30-40% of people of

I've read it takes very particular forms of stress to induce meiosis, and these condition are
apparently different for different yeast strains. And let's say, for sake of argument, that you
are able t...

you could plate out your yeast at expose them to a mutagen, like UV radiation. Then isolate
each colony and grow up a small amount. Then ferment candidates using the same batch of wort.
Screen for mut...
