The research was aimed at determininig the yield in yeast biomass production usinng Saccharomyces cerevisae as the test organism. Maize and millet bran were used to enhance the growth of the organism using control and complex media. Biomass yield was determined based on the concentration of the organism in the culture at 24hours interval for the period of four (4) days. The results obtained for millet in control media were 0.765, 0.922, 0.765 and 0.713 cell densities for the period of 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours respectively. The results obtained for maize in control media were 0.766, 0.927, 0.766 and 0.713 cell densities for the periods of 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours respectively. The results for millet in complex media were recorded as 0.767, 0.925, 0.767 and 0.712 cell densities for the periods of 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours respectively. The results of maize in complex media were recorded as 0.769, 0.928, 0.769 and 0.713 cell densities for the periods of 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours. From the results obtained in this work it could be seen that the maximum yield in yeast biomass was achieved using maize bran which was supported with complex media. Therefore, the use of maize bran for cheeper biomass production in large quantity is highly encouraged.
