- According to Guiness, a pint of Beer is lifted
about ten times, and each time about 0.56 ml is lost in a beer

- The first civilised culture to brew beer was
that of the Samarians of Mesopotamia. They called it a “Devine
Drink”and offered it to their Gods.The earliest record of
beer is a 6000 year old Samarian tablet that depicted a group
of people using reed straws to drink from a communal bowl.
- The Hydrometer transformed how beer was brewed.
Before its introduction, beers were brewed from a single Malt.
Example: brown beers from brown malt, amber beers from amber malt,
and pale beers from pale malt. Using the Hydrometer, brewers could
calculate the yield from different malts. They observed that pale
pale malt, though more expensive, yielded far more fermentable
material than cheaper malts. For example, brown malt (used for
porter) gave 54 pounds of extract per quarter, whilst pale malt
gave 80 pounds. Once this was known, brewers switched to using
mostly pale malts for all beers with a small quantity of highly
coloured malt to achieve the desired colour for darker beers.
