David Rose asked about high-efficiency mating protocols.

This has worked for us in the past:

Grow the two cultures to saturation; mix at equal densities (important if 
one grows poorly) the liquid cultures.

Spot the mixed culture on a YEPD plate, grow overnight.

Streak (or resuspend and plate) selecting for the diploid.
