So, the reinheitsgebot fits my tastes! People can put what they like in their drinks, but to me, beer is malt, hops, and water!

So I guess your not big on Belgian beers?  ::) 


oh and you can't make beer without yeast......

I like some belgian beers.  I actually like kriek alot, but wouldn't put it into what my idea of 'beer ' is.

I left out yeast because when the reinheitsgebot was written people didn't know about yeast yet, therefore yeast was not included as an ingredient.

I feel the same way about beer as I do about what I call 'new age pizza'. You know, the 'pizza's that have walnuts and cherrys and all sorts of crap, but no tomato sauce and mozzerella! It's just no what I call a pizza!

How long did it take them to figure out that wild yeast were fermenting their beer?  Also... what about other critters?   ;)

Pasteur figured it out in the mid 1800s.

Hmm.. I thought Calrsberg discovered it. Maybe they discovered lager yeast?

Ok, Calsberg seperated wild yeast from so called "good" yeast.

Here's a pretty interesting link if anyone is interested.

Emil Hansen isolated lager yeast when working for Carlsberg.

A lot of scientific advancements came out of Carlsberg Labs.  How to determine protein content (still used today), pH scale, several yeast genetics advances including mating type switching and mendelian gene segregation . . . really, a ton of great science coming out of the study of beer!
