The Phaff Yeast Culture Collection on "After Dark" Series

Talking about yeast

The Phaff Yeast Culture Collection will be part of the weekly Thursday evening “After Dark” series at the Exploratorium this Thursday March 12, from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. Visitors can learn how we use yeast to make many different fermented foods and beverages, view microbes from some foods and beverages under the microscope, see and smell different species of yeast, and learn about the current research going on at the Phaff Yeast Culture Collection.

Other presenters at this event will share their knowledge of mushroom tasting, mushroom hunting, mushroom photography, and yeast ecology. UCD alum Gordon Walker will talk about the biology and diversity of fungi. More information about the event is online at
