Does anyone know any good, up to date, reads on yeast?
I'll take anything: books, articles, papers, forum threads, blogs, toilet wall writings...

Here's a list of what I have already read so you can skip those:
-Yeast by C. White
-Sui Generis website
-Milk the Funk
-Bootleg Biology
-Eurekabrewing
-BKYeast
-Pretty much everything on yeast banking on homebrewtalk
- Good amount of stuff from S. Cerevisiae/Mark on AHA forum but feel free to share any good links from him as I probably skipped something.

I'm interested in pretty much any topic regarding yeast apart from history of yeast in brewing, can't read that anymore..

I enjoy anything by Graham Stewart - he has several episodes on Master Brewers Podcast

He's old as dirt and basically a British caricature (he's hilarious when you listen to him speak.. sounds like a drunk 18th century army officer), but there's no one alive (IMO) that knows more about yeast (or has forgotten more in all likelihood)

+1 on anything from Graham, he spent most of his career at Labatt before being headhunted to head up brewing & distilling at Heriot-Watt, which is the main British academic centre for fermentation, I guess the equivalent of Weihenstephan or somewhere. He spent some of his retirement writing a Big Book of yeast, you may be interested in the Google preview if not the £120/~US$150 hardcopy!

Talking of professors at Scottish universities, Lallemand do various webinars etc and today had Graeme Walker on to talk about yeast nutrition :

Suregork (sometimes seen around here) blogs occasionally : Suregork Loves Beer | Beer Reviews, Homebrew, Rambling

Thanks for that mate, this all looks very cool.
I actually tried to contact Suregork to ask him to try to demystify a few things around yeast mating and isolation for us non scientists. Hope he finds time for that, but I doubt it.
