yeast homogenates

I am looking for a protocol to homogenize yeast cells for Western blot 
analyses that does not involve using a bead beater. I just went through a 
lovely protocol using glass beads, only to have my cells 
completely intact at the end! I have routinely done RNA isolations from yeast 
using glass beads, so I know you have to vortex the hell out of them to break 
them, but it didn't work well at all with this protocol.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
