    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
    both any...

    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
    determine ...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Can I culture yeast from Juniper Berries? on 06-10-2011 at 04:54 PM
    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
    clove fla...

    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...
