ST. LOUIS (AP) _ In what could be among its better attended classes, the University of Missouri-St. Louis is adding a chemistry course on beer brewing.

Joseph Meisel, a doctoral student at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, will be leading a chemistry class on beer brewing that he hopes will “demystify” science and math for students sometimes intimidated by those subjects.

Meisel is a home brewer who makes small batches in five-gallon tanks. His course, Chemistry 1021 Beer rewing: Chemical and Biochemical Principles, will be available beginning this fall to non-science majors.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the course will include opportunities to brew different types of beers and tour St. Louis-area breweries.
