MELO, Dângelly Lins Figuerôa Martins de et al. Identification of yeasts isolated from the pulp in nature and the production of homemade "umbu" wine. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2007, vol.50, n.5, pp.887-892. ISSN 1678-4324. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132007000500017.
The goal of this work was to select strains of fermentation yeasts and test them in a small-scale production of " umbu" fruit wine. The fruits were collected in N. Sra da Glória city in Sergipe, Brazil. The fruit pulp was diluted and aliquots were inoculated on YMA plates. The yeasts strains were submitted to fermentation using "umbu" fruit juice as substrate, exception with to those strains of species related to pathological processes. The yeasts tested produced a beverage characterized between dry to light due to its alcoholic content with very nice taste, translucent appearance, of green to light yellow color.
