Great quiz! :) although i think fermentation is aneorobic..?

Agree with the above.

i also agree its aneorobic

It is anaerobic, and in a fermenter I thought it was microorganisms, not enzymes, that would be killed by overheating. Nice quiz :)

I agree. I liked the quiz itself, but there were a few mistakes about. :) x
