Blog Challenge "Z"

At long last!  The blog challenge is drawing to a close.  I hope you're as sad as I am.  The A to Z challenge has given me an entire month's worth of blog post ideas.  Now, I'll have to start thinking on my own again.  But hey! For all of you new readers, I hope you like what's just around the corner.  :)

Z is for: Zymurgy


Without zymurgy, I don't think the human race could possibly be what it is today. . .  Seriously.  Zymurgy is the branch of chemistry which deals with fermentation, as in beer-making, wine-making, the preparation of yeast, etc.  You read correctly back there.  There is a field of study about basically the science behind making beer and wine.

Quite frankly, I don't need to know the science behind zymurgy.  But I sure am glad someone does.  Because without it, we might not have Fat Tire (my favorite beer, for those of you who don't know).  We may not have all the varieties of wines that we do.  For that matter, we may not ever have all of the yeast . . . um . . . I mean . . . hmmm . . . forget the yeast part.  Yay for beer and wine!

Have a great weekend everyone!  :)

Hah! I was going to use this word, too - but I thought I'd already used too many references to beer during the A-Z (sorry, sort of occupational hazard seeing as I'm a life-member of the the Campaign for Real Ale! )


I echo your sentiments, though! ;-)

What's it take to be a Zymurologist? Whatever it is, sign me up! Because as TJ said, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." And who doesn't want to be responsible for the happiness?
