    For all those with the big brains out there. Free brewing chemistry course.


    https://janux.ou.edu/#!HTML/OU/CHEM4970 ... ry_of_beer

    According to the description: This course covers the process of brewing from grain to final bottle product and the chemical and biochemical process involved in each step. Students will be required to utilize previous knowledge in General and Organic chemistry to understand: analytical techniques in brewing, chemistry of the ingredients and products, and the molecules involved in the biochemical processes. During the course, students will also learn the similarities and differences between beer styles, home and commercial brewing processes, and analytical techniques. There is a great deal of Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry involved in the malting, mashing and fermentation process and understanding the chemistry behind the flavor, aroma, and color of beer. Students should have a basic knowledge of general and organic chemistry.

    Free online course on the chemistry of beer starts in January and is taught through the University of Oklahoma.

    Awesome. I have enough background knowledge to keep up with this. I tried MIT's open course thing and it wasn't so useful without the textbook.

    what is this "chemistry" that you speak of?
    isn't brewing just art and magic?
    Never attribute to malice, that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.
