Abstract– Parameter optimization, namely molasses contaminant concentration, pH, temperature, and incubation time, was assessed for SmF in vivo changes of molasses contaminants to alcohol by Saccharomyces cerevisiae-1255. By maintaining the PH of the alcoholic fermentation at 5.1, it has been found that the alcoholic fermentation reaches its highest activity when the 25% molasses contaminant solution is fermented at a temperature of 31°C for 48 hours.

Key words: Alcohol fermentation, Saccharomyces cerevisiae-1255, pollutant molasses
