WARNING GEEK OUT AHEAD:
Who knew how much fun it is watching yeast do its thang!
Yesterday in Lab we filled four test tubes with different sugar solutions along with YEAST and removed oxygen. After an incubation period of 1 hour at 37°C (that's nearly 99°F). We were actually simulating glycolysis and essentially "making" alcohol (ethanol as shown) alongside carbon dioxide (CO2), fun times!
Did I mention the heavy smell of bread in the air afterward?
I can't believe the halfway point of the "semester" has come and gone. I have at least three more exams to study for and not a lot of time to do it in
I am on the verge of pulling my hair out or staying UP all night and I don't think bald would suit me very well...
