Although the alcoholic fermentation is an anaerobic process, small amounts of oxygen are required to sustain fatty acid and sterol biosynthesis by the yeast ( Andreasen and Stier, 1953; 1954). Freshly fermented beer is not ready for consumption and must undergo further treatment before it can be distributed and sold. In traditional brewing practice, postfermentation treatment, or conditioning, is a relatively simple process, but in modern beer manufacture, as in the other areas of ...

Fermentation sometimes called alcoholic fermentation is a kind of anaerobic respiration carried out by plants, bacteria and fungi, such as yeast. Alcohol and carbon dioxide are formed instead of lactic acid. We make use of these substances in brewing and baking (see chapter 14.5).

Alcoholic Fermentation The most important method for alcohol production is fermentation, which is a natural process, during which microorganisms consume organic compounds under anaerobic conditions to produce gas (CO2) and ethanol, a substance with intoxicating properties. The process of alcoholic fermentation has been known to humanity for more than 10000 years, and it has been speculated, based on archaeological findings, that it played a significant role in driving ...

alcoholic fermentation A form of ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION in which glucose is broken down to form ethanol and carbon dioxide. It is carried out by yeasts and some other fungi and certain bacteria. Alcoholic fermentation is catalyzed by enzymes of the zymase complex, which are secreted by the cells or released after the cells die. The process is self- limiting, since the organisms usually die once the alcohol concentration in the medium ...

Alcoholic fermentation Process by which certain microorganisms (mainly yeasts) metabolize sugars anaerobically to produce alcohols. In this process, glucose is converted to pyruvic acid, which is de- carboxylated to acetaldehyde. The acetaldehyde is subsequently reduced to ethanol. A wide variety of substrates can be used to produce alcoholic beverages, e.g. grain for production of beer, and grapes and other fruits for production of wines. However, the constituent sugars must be ...
