Description: Goal: To understand and apply quantitative methods of analysis and reasoning. You will be introduced to the science and mathematics supporting basic brewing techniques. While there are brewers who get away without knowing much science, the best brewers know quite a lot of the science and these people are sought out by the less informed brewers when anything goes wrong. While brewing certainly has some mysterious and magical properties, the ability to prepare the conditions for the making of great beer is well understood and is not difficult to learn if you are willing to work at it. This knowledge is transferable to many areas outside of brewing science. Students in this course will be exposed to the brewing process and research in fermentation science. They will be expected upon completion to be able to teach others about measurements, logarithms, basic algebraic calculations, metric conversions, sample analysis, means and standard deviations, p-values, first order rate reactions, and an introduction to linear regression equations used in spectroscopy. You will work hard, you will also have fun!
