All Those Little Yeasties!

Hi there! I know we're all obsessed with bread, and therefore obsessed with the little guys that do all the work inside the bread. I got an opportunity to put some yeast under a microscope and see what they actually looked like. I tried to take a picture, but actidentally cut some of the little guy off... Either way, the pic is posted on my blog if you'd like to have a look!

Head on over to Ovenmittsblog.com to check it out!

Hi Raquel

That's terrific - but what a pity you didn't quite catch it. Any chance of you having another go and capturing a full yeastie?

I tried to email you from your blog, but the email was returned. I'll PM you instead.

Love your blog - and your enthusiasm!

Cheers, Paul

Thanks Paul! Today was unfortunately my last day in my micro lab, so I won't be able to do it in there. But, I do have access to scopes outside of lab, and it would be cool to see some from my own starter! I'll try to do that for you guys. My email is ovenmittsblog(at)gmail.com if you have any other comments!
