When did we learn about fermentation?

    Humans have known about fermentation for ages and have enjoyed the benefits of the process to make wine. Fermentation is the conversion of sugars and starches to alcohol, and the simple and natural process has been mastered over the years. It wasn’t until the 1800s that fermentation really became a scientific topic, as scientists began to study theories on fermentation catalysts as well as the fermentation process itself.

    There is archaeological evidence that humans have brewed beer and wine for centuries, since early times BC. Most civilizations drank beer instead of water, because during the brewing process the mash is boiled, thus sterilizing it. Water contained harmful microbes and people avoided drinking that, but drank beer as it was clean and had a pleasant taste and effect.
