Superposition Pale Ale

  • 2014

Looking at the physics of biology through brewing a beer.

A collaboration with physicist Paul Beales from Leeds University as part of ASMbly.

Paul described the challenge like this

"Our challenge was to brew a beer in the 9 days of ASMbly lab 2014 ready for the final exhibition. ASMbly lab is an annual pop-up workshop space in central space for artists, scientists and makers to collaborate. Homebrewing a good quality bottle-conditioned beer can often take 6 weeks to 3 months from grain to glass, so we needed to examine the science of the process to see how we might speed things up and still end up with a pleasing product!"

I've since collaborated with Paul as part of Archibio, the bioLeeds ideas generation process and the first Superposition Art, Science, Maker Commission.
