Hello Paul,

you do not need any phenol steps.
Just grow yeast in 10 ml culture, wash 50 mM EDTA,
spheroplast in 1 ml SPEM (SCEM), make 1% agarose blocks (2-3),
lyse O/N in 15 ml YLS (1% SDS, 100mM EDTA, 30 mM 2-ME).
Washe twice with TE, equilibrate with EcoRI buffer and digest
1/4-1/2 of a block with 50-100 U of enzyme in 100 mkl.
