Yeast basics

Brief overview of posts dealing with basic techniques to work with yeasts as well as some techniques to store yeasts. Furthermore some posts dealing with yeast in a more advanced and scientific way.

Basic Yeast methods & techniques

Counting yeasts – Determine the yeast concentration
Yeast viability – Determine how many yeast cells are alive
Yeast morphology – Covers some basics about agar platings and colony morphologies
Information about my plating method – Brief overview about agar plates

Yeast banking

Yeast banking consists of techniques to set up a yeast library storing small amounts of yeast for future batches.
