Just another thread that makes me wish I'd gone to engineering instead of biochemistry. One can
learn to brew great beer without a biochem degree, but brewing is very much an engineering

Just business. They have to defend their trademark or it becomes invalid. Bad idea to name a
product that similarly to a well known brand. You think you could market a Sevens Up beer with
seven hop va...

Yeah, I guess that would be one way of doing it. But CO2 production doesn't necessarily tell
you alcohol content does it? I would imagine different sugars yield different product

Density change is roughly linear with respect to time during the most active fermentation
period (day 2-4 generally). Most enzymatic reactions have a strict maximum rate due to the
affinity of the enz...
