Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) plus sugar equals carbon dioxide plus alcohol. Carbon dioxide makes bread rise and forms the bubbles in beer and sparkling wine. The alcohol in bread evaporates during baking. But they're not just party animals - their quick growth makes yeast ideal subjects for biomedical research. The perfect addition for anyone with an interest in home brewing, or perhaps as a thoughtful gift for your favourite baker. Giant Microbes are also excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology and biochemistry while taking a fun, hands on approach. No hangover here!

Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.

Beer and Bread (Yeast) is 125 x 100 x 100mm, made of white (with beige patches) medium pile polyester plush, polyester filling and plastic eyes.
