His suspicion at the end of the article, is that any strain of yeast would have similar results
but that there has been little research into the subject.He would seem to have been wrong about

I think I'd think twice about someone extolling the health benefits of yeast who doesn't know
what kingdom it's in. But more to the point, deciding something is true and then setting out to

I think you've misunderstood his question (although interestingly enough, I've also done
research on pseudohyphal growth in yeast).weirdboy, the article is a bit misleading when it
says that yeast wer...

Anyone confused can resolve the matter easily enough with a highschool-level experiment: grow
yeast on a dextrose agar plate for a week or two (or a month, or whatever it takes to satisfy
you -- trans...

No, it really doesn't. Again, you are misunderstanding what is meant by "permanent
inactivation". Yes, the maltose permease protein present is permanently inactivated, but this
will not hinder the yea...

Yes, it will completely lose the ability to process maltose. After a few generations,
saccharomyces cerevisiae will stop producing the enzyme necessary to convert maltose into
simplier sugars. This is...

As I have posted here before, the "telltale white powder" isn't yeast -- it's wax, as any intro
botany book will clarify (this is an incredibly persistent, and somewhat baffling myth: how
would the ye...

Reading optical density, or doing most of what has been described, doesn't seem at all beyond
the scale of what can be accomplished at home for someone otherwise interested in these things.
Only a tet...

It is interesting to think of what one might use as a marker in ale yeast. I (strongly) suspect
that most of the obvious unambiguously scorable traits (high alcohol tolerance, say, or strong
Posted in thread: Creating a New Yeast Strain on 05-19-2011 at 12:33 AM
I've never really doubted that -- in a sense it's kind of obvious. Where else would researchers
have gone to get their strains, after all, other than breweries and bakeries, who would be
certain to ha...
