I'm a post-doc in the lab of Lee Johnston where I've been working with
cerevisiae for just over a year and I agree that learning the culture
techniques isn't easy. I've been lucky in being surrounded by people
with a lot of expertise in this area. Yeast nutrition is a huge field
and a lot of the papers on it are quite old, so really you'll have to be
more specific about what you want to know. There are lots of papers
relating nutrient availability to specific yeast developmental states.
However, if all you want is the basics for growing yeast, then the
section 1.1, Getting started with Yeast, in the Methods in Enzymology,
Guide to Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology (Guthrie and Fink) should
tell you most of what you need to know.
I would like quite like to be as gifted as William Shakespear, but I'm
only an English Biochemist!
