Summary

A hybrid yeast (Labatt culture collection strain 1393) was investigated for its ability to ferment a corn mash with reduced concentrations of added glucoamylase. It was found that glucoamylase additions could be decreased by as much as 50 percent. This reduction could represent significant cost savings in the production of fuel ethanol.
