Abstract

The maximum production of alcohol was calculated as functions of available amount of glucose and inoculum size of cell mass for a successive fed-batch cultivation using a brewer's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). Practical operation charts were obtained for alcohol production, yield of product for consumed glucose and productivity of alcohol. To increase the amount of alcohol, it was found that more frequent feed of substrate, three times at most, with smaller volume of initial batch culture was required for smaller inoculum size of cell mass and larger amount of available glucose.
