Russell’s invention uses a nozzle to deliver a pressurized carbonated liquid—henceforth, beer—into cups with resealable holes at their bases. The hole contains a nonreturn valve allowing beer to flow in, but not out. This removes the element of human error from beer pouring, says Kyle Johnson, director of sales and marketing for GrinOn Industries.

—'Beer' “” I enjoyed the "what's that stuff?" on beer (C&EN, April 3, page 39). For those readers who would like to further tap into the art and science of brewing, I heartily recommend the book "Beer" (2nd edition) by Charles Bamforth. It is an interesting and informative presentation of the history, sociology, and, especially, the science of brewing.

—Good Beer Is All In The Fold “Partially-folded protein from barley steadies brew’s tiny bubbles” A partially folded protein from barley just might hold the secret to a great mug of beer, a new study shows. To connoisseurs, the head of foam on a beer may be as important as its taste. A lipid-transfer protein from barley helps stabilize the liquid-gas interfaces in beer foam, but it cannot do so until after the brewing process, when it undergoes structural changes that haven’t been fully characterized.

On loan from NIST, Beers's major responsibilities included advising Marburger and others in the Executive Office on "the impacts of science and technology on domestic and international affairs," she explains.

—Carbon capture for craft beer, and liquor from whey “” Catching carbon from craft beer bubbles If you tour a craft beer brewery, you’ll often see a long hose leading from the top of a fermentation tank down into a bucket of frothy, bubbling water. The water prevents air from flowing back into the tank, which could spoil the batch.
