Fermentation is the anaerobic conversion of sugar to carbon dioxide and alcohol by yeast. It uses the NADH produced by glycolysis and ?regenerates? more NAD+ which is then again used by glycolysis. The process of Alcohol fermentation is the one we will be focusing on. In this process the 3-carbon pyurvic acid is converted into carbon dioxide and ethanol. So it turns out that for every molecule of ethanol that is produced a molecule of CO2 is produced as well. This makes CO2 a very useful measuring tool for the success or failure of a fermentation experiment.
