Lesson details

It's believed that our ancestors back in the early agrarian societies figured out how to brew beer by accident. Some of their crops got wet and were fermented by wild yeast in the air. They were quite impressed with the discovery and for generations since we've been brewing beer - and getting better at it every day!
