I don't know what the best way is, but we have had excellent luck growing cells in 2% 
galactose with varying amounts of glucose (up to 1%).  With 2%/1% gal/glu in YEP 
medium, expression from the GAL1 promoter is reduced 100-fold, as assayed by western 
of the expressed protein.  This is in a strain that started out as S288C background 
but was backcrossed several times to a good Gal+ strain.
