Mohammad,

There's no need to measure the pH of your YPD medium for normal
S.cerevisiae growth. The little critters grow just fine in it at 30¡C.
The recipe I use makes a solution with a pH of approximately 6.5. Here
it is.

1 liter YPD:
10g yeast extract
20g bacto-peptone
20g dextrose
1l distilled water
Autoclave.

Hope this helps,
