This week on Two Knit Monkeys Vol. 4

We would like to introduce you to the life of the party, beer yeast.  Do you like the crown on his head?  This little guy has been around more than 6,000 years making all kinds of tasty beers and breads.  Mmmm Mmmm, I'm getting thirsty!

One of these little guys can reproduce and in a mere 6 hours have more than 1,000,000 cells.  It's latin name, Saccharomyces cerevidiae, actually means "sugar fungus of the beer". 
We decided to make him feel at home and sampled some of his brethren in these fine tasty brews.... 
Beer yeast here.  These two guys couldn't handle me.  After a beer and a half they threw off their lab coats and danced around like they were at a rave.  Dr. G kept singing the Ghostbuster theme song and Professor B was telling me his life story.  I hope they feel o.k. in the morning!
Make sure to stop by for our final installment where we get to meet the ever scary book worm.  See you tomorrow!
