    Ancient Chinese pottery reveals 5,000-year-old beer brew

    MIAMI (AFP) - Residue on pottery from an archeological site has revealed the earliest evidence of beer brewing in China left from a 5,000-year-old recipe, researchers said Monday (May 23).

    The artifacts show that people of the era had already mastered an "advanced beer brewing technique" that contained elements from East and West, according to a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a peer-reviewed US journal.

    Yellowish residue gleaned from pottery funnels and wide-mouthed pots show traces of ingredients that had been fermented together - broomcorn millet, barley, a chewy grain known as Job's tears, and tubers.

    The article features Chateau Jiahu.

    Old recipes are great.

    This is also a great reason to adhere to old definitions in less immediately testable things than beer!
