What does yeast need to work?

Yeast needs water, food (in the form of sugar) and heat to grow. It does not need oxygen and can grow quite well under anaerobic conditions. The presence of oxygen during fermentation can actually favor the growth of other microorganisms that will compete with the yeast.

Fermentation is a process that converts sugar to acids, gases or alcohol. In yeast the fermentation process is carried our in beers, wines and other alcohol.

Why does yeast need hot water?

Warm water is best for yeast because yeast is a living organism that likes to live in similar temperatures to humans. Put yeast in hot water and it dies, put it in cold water and it will not do its job properly (will be too cold to reproduce fast etc). Put it in water that is just right and it will thrive

Do worms have cells?

Yes, worms do have cells. Worms are living creatures, and one of the 6 characteristics of life is that something has to have one or more cells. Worms are also animals and invertebrates (they have no central spinal cord). Worms belong to the annelid family, along with leeches. There are approximately 12,000 known species in the annelid family. The annelid family is grouped into three groups: oligochaetes (earthworms and freshwater worms), hirudineans (leeches), and polychaetes (marine worms). The three most common kinds of worms are as follows: * The Common Earthworm- this worm, also called a nightcrawler, is the one you are most likely to find in our garden. They are found in most of the world, when most people think of a worm, this is what comes to mind. * Brandling worms- these worms are smaller than Earthworms and are generally a dark pink to red in colour. They are most often found composting decaying matter, and surprisingly are rarely found in soils and instead live in conditions where many other worms are not. * Flatworms- these worms are parasitic and also eat earthworms. These worms are also the simplest of worms and are not even segmented. Worms are actually extremely important in our ecosystem. Worms add nutrients to the soil and are an important part of many food chains. Also, many worms have been introduced to other ecosystems, causing chaos and much destruction. For instance, Minnesota actually has no native earthworms, and instead has very small, almost microscopic worms living in their soils. These new worms were introduced from common fishing bait and have destroyed many native plant life, also pushing out the native worms.
