Group 4: Krystalynn Phan September 9, 2016 Yeast Fermentation Lab Introduction: Yeast are single celled fungi. They are relatable to fungi such mushroom, baker's yeast, molds for blue cheese, molds for antibiotics for medical and veterinary use. Yeast can ferment, signs of fermentation can shown by the foaming of the mixture. Small organisms are easy to control in a lab. Since yeast cells are tiny, it takes 20 billion to weigh one gram. Yeast digest sucrose, fructose, and glucose for energy. Alcoholic fermentation uses carbon dioxide and ethyl. Objective: Our objective was to find out which of the materials would react with the yeast. If knowing which materials reacts with the yeast it would indicate that it is a good thing. Another good thing would be if it starts to bubble up and starts to let out lots of gas to fill up the balloon as much as possible is the best way knowing the materials we put in the test tube to fill up the balloon is the best way to know it reacted with the yeast. Hypothesis: Our hypothesis for the tube with the sugar was that it would create the most gas with the yeast, because it is just pure sugar itself. We hypothesized that the tube with the honey would place 2nd for the most balloon inflation because the honey had the second most amount of sugar in it. For the tube with the soda/squirt in it, we hypothesized that it would inflate the 3rd

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
