I'm growing yeast strain S288C (MATalpha trp1-0) in 2L fermentor. The
medium is YEPD and the setup is as follows:
- fermentation type: batch
- temperature: 30 'C
- initial pH: 4.8 (pH is not controlled)
- airflow (1.12 L/min) and stirring (300 rpm) are kept constant.
My "problem" is that I'm getting unusual pH- and pO2 curves compared on
what I have been used to in fermentations of typical bakers yeast.
Please, look the picture
I'm wondering what happens in about 20 hours after inoculation. There are
sharp changes on both curves. Could someone share an opinion?
