Increasing Your Vitality
Testing the microbiological integrity of yeast is described in Chapter 8. Second, it is usual to determine the viability of the yeast. Most breweries operate a quality reject system in which yeast is discarded if the viability falls below a pre-set value. In addition, viability measurements are used to determine the quantity of slurry required to achieve the desired viable pitching rate. Third, there is a category of quality tests, Vitality tests', which seek to probe aspects of the physiological condition of yeast. Thus, they provide information regarding the viable fraction of yeast slurries. distinguish viable and non-viable cells in a reliable manner, particularly those in the exponential phase of growth. Conversely, alkaline methylene violet could distinguish living, stressed and dead cells. In this sense, the method was of utility in measuring 'vitality' as well as viability, as discussed in Section 7.4.2. 7.4.2 Yeast vitality tests Several 'vitality'...
Death and autolysis are the final events in the life cycle of yeast. Although cell death (or loss of viability) and, to extent, autolysis can be measured, the triggers for these events are at best empirically understood. In the case of cell viability, programmed cell death through ageing and senescence only account for a fraction of the dead cell population found in fermenter. Clearly, as is well known, the environment of the yeast cell can have a direct impact on cell death. Most notable of the numerous environmental factors is the concentration of the narcotic, ethanol (see Section 3.6.2). The complexity surrounding the assessment of cell death and the mystery of 'vitality' are discussed at length elsewhere (see Sections 7.4.1 and 7.4.2).
Would have a reduced requirement for wort oxygenation for standard fermentation performance. This would be detectable by monitoring sterol levels in pitching yeast. A reasonably rapid method for yeast sterol determination has been developed (Rowe el al., 1991). This relies on a change in the absorbance spectrum of the polyene antibiotic filipin, which occurs after it reacts with sterol. Of course, the necessity to monitor sterol, glycogen and possibly trehalose on a routine basis begins to stretch the concept of a rapid inexpensive vitality test 126.96.36.199 Measures of cellular activity. Another approach to assessing yeast physiology is to measure some aspect of metabolic activity, preferably one that reflects behaviour during fermentation. Several vitality tests of this type have been proposed. The most obvious and direct predictive fermentation test is to perform a laboratory fermentation trial, using the type of apparatus described in Section 5.9. Such tests have the advantage of...
The second option is to make off-line assessments immediately prior to pitching which allow appropriate values for user variables to be chosen for that particular fermentation. For example, the so-called 'yeast vitality' tests whose aim is to produce a rapid assessment of yeast physiological condition, and thereby allow an optimum pitching rate and or wort oxygenation regime to be chosen (see Section 7.4.2). An automated example of this type of approach is to measure the specific rate of oxygen uptake, by yeast, during wort collection. From this, the optimum oxygen concentration for that particular fermentation may be computed and added to the inflowing wort (see Section 6.3.6).
On the other hand, if a particular yeast line is performing satisfactorily and is microbiologically 'clean', there will be a natural desire to continue brewing with such yeast, even though it may have completed its allotted number of generations. This highlights the need for methods of testing the yeasts' physiological condition, which are predictive of subsequent fermentation performance. In other words the so- called 'vitality tests' described in Section 7.4.2.
