Koch told me that for years he has swallowed your standard Fleischmann's dry yeast before he drinks, stirring the white powdery substance in with some yogurt to make it more palatable.

"One teaspoon per beer, right before you start drinking."

According to a new study, the average modern man has some sperm problems, what with the heavy caffeine intake, tight-fitting boxer briefs (bummer), and being stressed out ALL THE TIME like the rest of us. Has your man had a cellphone for more than 10 years? His sperm are probably weaker because of that as well. Great. But never fear, because wine is here! In the study, Polish researchers found that drinking two glasses of wine for three days every week may help men's little swimmers do more laps

In the study, people with one version of a bitterness taste receptor gene said they found an alcoholic drink to be less bitter-tasting than those with a different version of the gene, according to the findings published today (Sept. 23) in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research.

"The two genes, that had been previously associated with [alcohol] intake, also associated with differences in the perception of ethanol," said study author Dr. John E. Hayes, of the Sensory Evaluation Center at The Pennsylvania State University in University Park. "The reason this work is significant is because it fills in this gap, because no one had shown in the lab that the alcohol actually tastes differently depending on which [version of the gene] you have."

Someone (it was probably my biochemist beer brewing brother) told me that the green bottles don't block ultraviolet light. It is a reaction with the ultraviolet light that causes this taste that I don't like. Well, maybe I don't always trust my brother (even though when it comes to beer, I should). You know what happens next, right? Experiment time.

I'm smelling advertisement, but this concept needs to be brought to a consumer level. The future is now, people!

A study at Granada University of Spain seem to suggest than beer is better than water at rehydrating the body after exercise.

Here's what the researchers did:

Asked 25 students to run on a treadmill at 104 degrees Fahrenheit to the point of exhaustion Measured their levels of hydration, motor skills and their ability to concentrate Half the students were given water to drink and the other half were given Spanish lager

Result:
Those who were given beer had slightly better hydration levels than those who were given plain water.

“Compared to modern beers, the shipwreck beers contained similar levels of potassium but 15- to 60-fold more sodium, presumably derived from sea water. This may have diluted the beers up to 30%,” the scientists wrote in the paper published in the Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry.

“Ethanol contents were low (2.8-3.2%) compared to typical modern lagers and ales. The mass ratios of glycerol and ethanol were 4.5% for both shipwreck beers, which is typical for a yeast fermentation product.”

Dr Gibson and his colleagues analyzed samples from two bottles recovered in the shipwreck.

They determined that the samples were different beers based on their hop content.
