Fermentation Monday Night Purpose: The purpose of this experiment was to observe the effects of different carbohydrates on the fermentation of yeast. Hypotheses: 1. Starch is a substrate for yeast fermentation. 2. Lactose +Lactase is a better substrate for yeast fermentation than lactose alone. Methods: 1. Tape label each beaker to be used in the experiment, and measure 35 ml of the sugar solutions and/ or carbohydrate and enzyme combinations and pour them into the beakers 2. Add 0.5 g yeast to each beaker, stir, and wait 5 minutes. 3. Pour the contents into the corresponding numbered fermentation tubes. Carefully invert each tube so the “tall” portion is filled with solution. 4. Place the tubes in a 37 C incubator. At intervals of 20, 40, and 60 minutes from the start of the experiment measure the distance from tube tip to fluid level and record results in table 1 . 5. Calculate the volume of gas evolved using the formula: V= πr2h . Then convert volume from mm 3 to cm 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
