Does sugar type matter? The complicated story of five sugars, yeast, and ethanol

Lucas Vieth, Courtney Williamson, Samantha Williams, Kirsten Price, Ryan Koch


Yeast is a widely used product to make baked goods and alcoholic beverages in various ways. In yeast, the anabolic process that produces ethanol is called fermentation, which influences the ethanol output. In the experiment, we will be studying the effects of different sugars on ethanol levels. We will log the ethanol produced using the ethanol probe. Our results stated that corn sugar produced the most ethanol, lactose produced the least amount of ethanol. We placed one graph in the results section to give a better visual of the results.
