AIMS To analyse the genetic diversity and the dynamics of Saccharomyces strains in spontaneous fermentation in ciders. The effect of the cellar, harvest and cider-making technology were evaluated. METHODS AND RESULTS The ecology of spontaneous cider fermentations in the same cellar (Asturias) was studied for two consecutive harvests (2000 and 2001) by using mtDNA restriction analysis. Our results showed that there was a succession of genetically different strains of Saccharomyces during cider… CONTINUE READING
