Anaerobic

Anaerobic is anything capable of living or growing in an environment that lacks free oxygen.

For brewers, aerobic respiration refers to the stage of yeast activity where they have used up all of the oxygen present in the wort, and to continue to metabolize they begin converting the available sugars to ethanol and carbon dioxide.
