Alcoholic fermentation


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Alcoholic fermentation the fermentation which saccharine bodies undergo when brought in contact with the yeast plant or Torula. The sugar is converted, either directly or indirectly, into alcohol and carbonic acid, the rate of action being dependent on the rapidity with which the Torulæ develop.
