adj.

Definizione

Living or occurring only in the presence of oxygen. 1

Nota

Like all living things, yeast cells have a primary drive to reproduce. In the first and most vigorous stage of fermentation (2 to 4 days), the yeast action mainly produces more yeast. This is the aerobic (contact with air) fermentation. The anaerobic (without air) fermentation follows and produces most of the alcohol. Under optimum conditions, a wine fermentation will last approximately three weeks, but this may take as much as several months, sometimes for no apparent reason. 2

Contesto

[…] it is more energy efficient and consequently advantageous for yeast cells to undergo aerobic metabolism […] providing that aerobic conditions prevail. 3
