YPD medium lacking uracil

Add 1% casamino acids to .67% YNB plus glucose. This medium has everything
yeast might need except for adenine, tryptophan and uracil.

Dear newsgroup readers,
I remember sometime ago hearing about a commercial source of YP(D) medium
lacking uracil (removed somehow).  I have a strain which requires
selection for maintenance of a URA3 plasmid (2 micron), without the growth
limitation imposed by synthetic medium.  If a YPD-uracil product does not
exist, is there another supplement I could add to SC to help the growth of
a slow-growing strain?  Any suggestions would be much appreciated: if you
could please post to my email address as well as the newsgroup, as
messages tend to scroll off our server.
Thanks v. much,
