In order to investigate the effects of Pichia farinosa SKM -1, Pichia anomala SKM-T, Galactomyces geotrichum SJM-59, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae on extending the shelf life of kkakdugi, 4 kinds of lyophilized yeasts adding kkakdugis were prepared and stored at $4^{\circ}C$ for 30 days. Except S. cerevisiae adding group, 3 kinds of yeast adding groups were maintained their desirable levels (ca. pH 4.2 and 0.6% acidity) during the fermentation. The hardness of yeast adding groups was higher than those of control during the experiments. The number of yeast and the ratio of lactic acid against to total bacteria in P. farinosa SKM-1, P. anomala SKM-T, and G geotrichum SJM-59 adding groups were lower than that of control and/or S. cerevisiae adding group. Based on acidity, kkakdugi made with P. farinosa SKM-1, P. anomala SKM-T, and G geotrichum SJM-59 remained edible about 10 days longer than the control product.
