It's a gas, gas, gas!


So I've joined a homebrewing community here on LJ. Also recently I've been giving lots of thought to global warming. This has led me to making a starting discovery: making alcohol is bad for the environment!

In the process of fermentation, yeast feasts greedily on the sugars in the wort or must. The output of this feeding frenzy is carbon dioxide(I suppose one could consider it yeast farts). Just imagine the CO2 output of the worlds' megabreweries!

Crap. Now how am I going to enjoy my next beer?

Also, remember this the next time you go on a bender. Your good time is killing the environment! For shame!
