A PROPOSED RULE BY THE F-D-A COULD HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT
ON BOTH BEER BREWERS AND FARMERS IN OUR AREA.
-- MICHELLE --
NEWS THREE'S JESSICA ARP EXPLAINS HOW THE TWO INDUSTRIES
AND HOW THEY SAY SOME FOOD SAFETY CHANGES.
COULD HURT THEM.
rochelle and i are filtering our new maibock called
big sweet light
A NEW BEER HAS THE STAINLESS STEEL SINGING AT WISCONSIN
NAT -- this is where it filters
BUT BREWMASTER KIRBY NELSON EXPLAINS THAT IT'S NOT
JUST GRAIN IN.
AND BEER OUT.
the main ingredients of beer are water malted barley
hops and yeast and the malted barley has a great potential
beyond what we're using it for to make beer :11
AMONG WISCONSIN BREWING'S MANY TANKS.
IS ONE OUTSIDE.
DESIGNATED FOR IT'S OWN HAPPY HOUR...
NAT OF SKIDLOADER
FOR THESE LADIES.
since time immortal brewers have given spent grain
to farmers because its a very good source of animal
feed :49 and it works out very well :51
it helps put in protien and other nutrients that are
not in the diet that helps put it in :35
THEY GET IT FOR FREE.
its a win win right now for farmers and breweries
BUT THE WHOLE RELATIONSHIP IS IN JEOPARDY BECAUSE
OF A PROPOSED F-D-A RULE CHANGE...
THAT WOULD SAY BREWERIES MAY HAVE TO DRY AND PACKAGE
THE VERY WET GRAINS BEFORE SELLING OR GIVING THEM
IN THE NAME OF FOOD SAFETY ISSUES.
that would just financially and practically not make
any sense for us :05 and so here youd have all this,
what is a very sustainable byproduct of the brewing
process ending up in landfills
THE GOBELS SAY THEY'RE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE GRAIN
AND FEED TO THE LANDFILL MEANS THEY SPEND MORE ON
AFTER CRITICISM OF THE RULE.
THE F-D-A SAYS THEY'LL PROPOSE REVISED RULES THIS
BOTH ARE HOPING THE FEDS RELENT.
AND DON'T REQUIRE THE CHANGE.
looking good pause, :36 smelling better
LEAVING EVERYONE TO SIMPLY.
:38 tastes great, wonderful
