Step 1: Drink it before it goes bad
 
2008-12-27 01:25:25 PM  
Sadly, no one seems to be working on fixing beer that's bad from the get-go.

trouzourt: Blessed are the beer makers..


Not these beer makers:

The new types of bacteria were found with the unwitting help of her younger brothers a couple years ago while they were also attending the University of Saskatchewan. Too cheap to buy their own beer, the boys made some home brew and offered her a glass.

The beer, smelling like cheese with sludge on the bottom, was too disgusting to drink, Haakensen says.


Ruining beer is a serious drinking problem. Let's hope she is better with the cleanliness than her bros.

I know a woman with a couple patents on beer preservation so I'm getting a kick out of these replies by proxy..

Ok, beer sounds good. I am going home from final family christmas party and drinking.
 
2008-12-27 06:26:21 PM  
They are talking about beer spoiling like it's a bad thing... in case of Coors/Bud/Miller anything would be an improvement...
 
2008-12-27 06:26:44 PM  
That's actually some interesting research. This could be a boon to breweries.

Monique is obviously not familiar with the GIGO theory.

Woot! U of S! Nice to see someone from my alma mater doing something worthy.

It does. Saskatoon is the biotech capital of Canada. U of S has medicine, dentistry and a vet college. Only one in Western Canada to have all three, IIRC.

She has that kind of psycho un-hittable expression and hairdo. Kind of a Sara Pallin thing going on.

I don't think the Canadian government would let her succeed at her project as then Fosters could become an Australian beer in North America again.

I've only been to one liquor store in my life that really did it right. They kept all bottled beer in a dark cooler and only had a shelf display to show what was available.

Light destroys beer.
 
2008-12-27 08:15:08 PM  
"...a DNA-based technique, that has big breweries around the globe hoisting pints in celebration.."

indeed... so, the people who make bad beer in the first place are pretty excited about this.

I did my share of beer research in my U of S days, and never kept it around long enough for this to arise.

I'm guessing not. You have to go there to meet them. I really only came to Calgary for job prospects, myself. Saskatoon would still be my preference. It has soul. Calgary tries too hard to be something it isn't.

As a Sask. ex-pat living in BC for 20 years now I somewhat agree, I left cause I like going outside in the winter. :)
Saskatoon seems to have a disproportionate amount of nice ladies, who now seem to all be in Calgary, those lucky bastards! When I was going to SIAST back in the day loved going to Louies at the U of S for shows, good times indeed.

I was on the 500 block 9th for a year, and 200 block Main for a couple of years. Really, how often do you come accross a Laundra-Bar. I still remember the radio ads for the Wash N Slosh, encouraging patrons to "have a beer while you wash your gear" or "have a scotch while you wash your gotch".

FTA: "Beyond her PhD in beer, Haakensen says there's not much opportunity for her to have a career doing beer research. "

FTFH: "No career in beer", says Monique Heineken.

From her bio: "I learned of the many parallels and interconnections that exist between all areas of science and witnessed the synergistic benefits to be gained through interdisciplinary utilization of knowledge".

Layman's translation: "I kill in buzzword bingo."

My god man, a SK thread. That's rarer then our famed seat belts.
A cookie to who figures that reference out.

Born and raised in SW SK. Went to school in Moose Jaw and enjoyed my trips to saskascratchabush.

:)

Back on topic, I am surprised this research is even looked at. I would prefer research in self cooling bottles. My beer doesn't stick around long enough.

Saskatchewan References that may confuse people.

lots of obligatory small town references

I remember having to buckle up crossing the border. Sask had the first seatbelt laws.

The admission form to get into U of S was one of the hardest I've ever seen.

How did you answer that one?

Look . . . Beer, like all other kids of food, is SUPPOSED to go bad. That's what it does. Because going bad is nothing more than being turned into a waste product by something eating it.

So, as the farker above said, drink it before it goes bad.

It's very simple.

Dude, I am living in the 200 block of Main as we speak. Sweet deals abound, it's a small world.

Katalyst, where the hell are you? How is it that I have ended up so near fellow farkers? Also, Saskatooners should consider a beer night sometime soon.
