NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The University of Oklahoma is offering a Chemistry of Beer course this spring to help explain chemical processes through the practical application of brewing beer.

The course is being offered through OU’s Janux program, an interactive online learning community. The course, among other Janux courses, is free and available to anyone around the world with Internet access.

The course professor, Dr. Mark Morvant, assistant chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, says the technology that is used in brewing beer has been around for thousands of years. But now, chemistry can tell why those technologies are used and exactly how ingredients, like hops and yeast, work together to transform into the final product.

The Chemistry of Beer will be offered beginning this week and will last 16 weeks.
