New Brewing Method Means Faster Beer, Less Waste

And ANOTHER Slashdot post, this time on a much more important topic.
A brewmaster in Germany has invented a cylinder that fuses yeast to the sides, allowing the yeast to do its fermentation job faster. A process that normally takes 10 days now takes a few hours. Also, yeast that normally has to be changed out after three brews can now last up to six months to a year.
