And Farkers recycle the alcohol into pee. It's the bloody circle of life.

There's another twist used by the wine industry. After fermentation, they take the leftover grape pulp and skins and feed it to cows. It affects their digestion so they burp and fart less methane.

Well i dont think any brewer of booze has the actual knowledge to properly estimate how much oxygen is being produced, so forgive me for not giving 2 farks about their guess

The CO2 produced by fermentation isn't the bad kind. It's not fossil carbon, it's carbon that was atmospheric carbon to begin with. The bad CO2 is from the tractors and trucks used in farming and transporting the grain. Responsible breweries like New Belgium (Fat Tire) are working to reduce or eliminate this carbon footprint.

I have a great friend who has designed and built the light delivery system (major laser spectroscopist) as he lives close to the brewery's owner.

There are also some really big brewers like Alaskan, for example, that will capture co2 created during fermentation and then use it to carbonate their beer after filtration. But you have to make a lot of beer for that to be economical because co2 is pretty cheap.
