Beer is a good time as it is, but what if it was also glow-in-the-dark?
Awesome. It would be totally awesome.
Former NASA biologist Josiah Zayner made this awesomeness a reality by launching a kit that lets home brewers craft beverages that glow.
With The Odin, Zayner has created kits for curious minds to conduct their own science experiments ― one of which is for bioluminescent beer.
The bright green coloring is ridiculously intriguing in its own right, but there’s something even more fascinating about it: It’s from a jellyfish gene.
According to the kit’s guide, “a plasmid DNA” was added to “the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae so that it turns a fluorescent green color.”
