IT INVOLVES COMPLEX CHEMICAL AND

BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES, BUT WE'RE

NOT TALKING ABOUT YOUR TYPICAL

SCIENCE CLASS.

BREWING BEER IS BECOMING A

BOOMING BUSINESS WHICH IS WHY

THE SCHOOL OF MINES WANTS TO

TEACH IT.

KELOLAND'S, SYDNEY THORSON SHOWS

US WHY THE UNIVERSITY AND

BREWERIES ARE KEEPING AN EYE ON

A BILL IN PIERRE.

áááPKGááá

JUSTIN HOFF IS A SENIOR CHEMICAL

ENGINEERING STUDENT AND IS A

MEMBER OF THE FERMENTATION CLUB

AT THE SCHOOL OF MINES.

"WE BASICALLY JUST TRAVEL TO

DIFFERENT BUSINESSES AROUND THE

AREA TO DIFFERENT BREWERIES,

DIFFERENT WINERIES AND WE JUST

LEARN ABOUT THE FERMENTATION

PROCESS AND HELP THEM OUT

HOWEVER WE CAN," JUSTIN HOFF,

SENIOR AT SMT, SAID.

HOFF BELIEVES IF HOUSE BILL 1081

BECOMES LAW, IT WOULD BE A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO

LEARN AND APPLY DIFFERENT THINGS

THEY'VE BEEN DOING IN THE

CLASSROOM.

"SUCH AS MICROBIOLOGY,

ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, PROCESS,

DESIGN AND THEN IT ALSO GIVES US

A CREATIVE STREAK TO HAVE

INDIVIDUALISM IN OUR WORK," HOFF

SAID.

BREWING BEER IS A CENTURIES OLD

ART THAT IS STILL PRACTICED ALL

AROUND THE WORLD AND IN LOCAL

BREWERIES, INCLUDING LOST CABIN.

"THERE'S YOUR FOUR BASIC

INGREDIENTS THAT GO INTO

BREWING. YOU GOT WATER, WHICH IS

YOUR MAIN INGREDIENT, THE MALT,

WHICH THEY CALL THE SOUL OF THE

BEER AND THEN WE GOT HOPS FOR

FLAVORING AND BITTERING TO KIND

OF BALANCE OUT BETWEEN THE MALT

AND THEN YOUR YEAST OF COURSE

WHICH MAKES THE BEER," TOM

SILBERNAGEL, HEAD BREWER AND

OWNER OF LOST CABIN, SAID.

"I JUST HOPE THAT IT GETS MORE

STUDENTS INVOLVED. IT'S A REALLY

FUN HOBBY, IT'S AWESOME TO DO.

IT EMPHASIZES A LOT OF DIFFERENT

PRINCIPALS OF ENGINEERING IN A

FUN A CREATIVE MANNER," HOFF

SAID.

SYDNEY THORSON: "THE BILL WILL

ALLOW STUDENTS, 21 OR OLDER, TO

MAKE BEER OR WINE ON CAMPUS FOR

EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. AND

THEY WOULD BE MAKING A VERY

LIMITED AMOUNT.

IN RAPID CITY, SYDNEY THORSON,

KELOLAND NEWS."
