Alcohol fermentation, also known as ethanol fermentation, is the anaerobic pathway carried out by yeasts in which simple sugars are converted to ethanol and carbon dioxide. Yeasts typically function under aerobic conditions, or in the presence of oxygen, but are also capable of functioning under anaerobic conditions,...How does alcohol affect fermentation?
In any chemical reaction, including fermentation, the amount of products formed is determined by the amount of reactants used. Thus, increasing the amount of sugar used increases the amount of alcohol being produced since increasing the amount of sugar increases the amount of reactants going into the fermentation reaction.What are the steps in alcoholic fermentation?
Generally, lactic acid fermentation is carried out by bacteria such as Lactobacillus and yeast. It occurs in two major steps: glycolysis and fermentation. Both glycolysis and lactic acid fermentation occur in the cytosol. Glycolysis is the first step of both lactic acid and alcoholic fermentation.
