WRASH Special Event - ACEZ

Thursday, November 20th, 2014 at 7pm

Location: Washington, Pennsylvania 15301

This event is in the past.

Our friends in the Washington Rebel Association of Serious Homebrewers (WRASH) have invited TRASH members to an interesting event next Thursday, November 20th, 2014: ACEZ: Analytical Chemists Exploring Zymology.

The event page is here:


Chemistry majors from Washington and Jefferson College will present to the public their experimental results from their brewing studies on November 20th at 7 pm in the Salvitti Atrium of the Swanson Science building. Please come to listen to our student’s findings and taste some homebrew in the process. The atrium is on the first floor of Swanson, which is located at the corner of Maiden and Lincoln Street. Parking can be found on Lincoln across the street from the Swanson building. 

Students will be given the task to design a project that involves the use of modern instrumentation applied to the brewing industry. In particular, questions related to the hobby of home brewing will be encouraged. Examples include the use of high pressure liquid chromatography to determine the alpha acid content of home grown hops. The mineral profile of city water in Washington can be assessed by optical emission spectroscopy using inductively coupled plasma. Other ideas are still brewing. The audience will be asked to participate in sensory analysis tests as the important chemical measurement is how the beer tastes to you!

For more information, please contact WRASH Member Prof. Iuliucci.
