Dear Greg,

yeast extract/peptone medium contains small amounts of carbohydrates 
(e.g. about 0.02% glucose). However, the yeast cells are also capable of 
using other components of the medium as (respiratory) carbon sources. I 
suggest that you should use synthetic medium for your investigations as 
we do.

Best regards
Eckhard
