I am back after a short break from brewing while getting settled back into school! I am currently taking (and sitting in) a course called Brewing Sciences and Technologies. For a large portion of our grade we have to write a 10 page paper on ANY topic relating to beer. The point of this thread is to help me get ideas from the bright minds out there!

So far I have settled on "The great debates of hombrew culture" for my topic. I feel like I could write a novel discussing both sides of the glass/plastic, secondary/none, etc etc debates.

Any ideas for that topic or a completely different one are welcomed!

I would write a research paper on which style of beer gets me drunk the quickest.

Its a bad study N=1. You need about 3000 of your closest friends to have any statistical power*

I saw a piece a few weeks ago on the Discovery Channel (or one of those types of channels) that pretty much said that the whole history of mankind's evolution, industrialization, medical breakthrough revolved around the discovery of beer. Now that would make for an interesting paper.

How about:

Long primary, with no secondary vs short primary, and then secondary...

Write a small section about the history of home brewing in the united states, then just keep a journal of a brewing session you're doing and you got a research paper and a new batch
