What do you know about anaerobic and aerobic respiration to start off with? Basically yeast respire anaerobically when they don't have any oxygen so all they can do is glycolysis - this is the stage that takes place in the cytoplasm, when glucose is changed into pyruvate - this releases a bit of energy. (Just for the record, if oxygen is present the other two stages can be carried out and these take place in the mitochondria, and release far more energy.) In yeast, one of the byproducts of glycolysis is ethanol, which is quite useful for us Umm... It's actually quite difficult to think of anything more to say that's very simple; how simple are you asking?
