What is the difference between Wild Type, Type A and Type T yeasts?
Any type of yeasts that occurring naturally in the air or on surfaces especially of fruits is called wild yeast. They are artificially cultured for use in brewing or baking industries as a leavening agent, where it converts the fermentable sugars present in dough into the carbon dioxide gas. Their resistance to alcohol is very low. They are unable to perform any activity once alcohol levels reach 6%.
