The US army is now hiring a brewmaster.

Because those soldiers need their beer damnit!

Brewers do not get paid well, at all. Unless you're brewing for one of the mega corporations or the couple handfuls of big craft breweries.

It's not a big money making business despite the huge boom in the popularity of craft beer.

Bummer, I went to a conference where a retired head brewer from Budweiser gave a talk. Learned lots of stuff I've mostly forgot since then, he was quite the interesting character.

Those guys make a good living for sure, but there's 1 per facility so maybe a few hundred people worldwide who are in the same position and there are over two thousand breweries in the US alone.

Being a head brewer is cool, but being the Chief Beer Officer is even cooler.

It really isn't much different than how we buy our vehicles, weapons, clothes and the like. The best equipment the lowest bidder can provide!

I would think it would be really good experience for the novice brewer. Aethien are you applying?

I chose a career where the heaviest thing I have to lift is my lunch, I like to keep it that way ad brewing includes way too much hauling around of 50lb bags, not to mention that most of professional brewing consists of cleaning stuff.

IF its army it probably has really good benefits and maybe even free place to live? If that was the case it might be a mediocre job.

Vacuum pumps, gas cylinders, big containers of chemical waste... all things that be can heavy and that you don't want to drop for various reasons.

Oh, and we don't have a laser thingy anymore. MALDI is so last decade, it's all electrospray these days.

You don't have lackeys or henchman to do that sort of stuff? Also lasers are the future, lasers are always the future.

No we need to hire more, but you know budgets and stuff. Besides there's more women than men in the field, so chances are good I'll still be moving stuff even if we get a new minion. Smiley: glare

Lasers are fine, they're just in the same boat as the time-of-flight instruments with the long vacuum tubes, high mass accuracy instruments that take up half the room and such. You want strong electrical currents and the spinning of your atoms into tight orbitals. Smiley: thumbsup

We get them during the summer, rest of the time they go back to school. They're usually more trouble than they're worth though, with the asking questions and trying to learn something while on the job. Seriously just go get the enzyme, and remember to close the freezer this time! Smiley: motz

Oh these gals aren't helpless by any means, still for the most part they aren't the kind of women who you see lifting and moving heavy objects. Really even on the male end, they aren't the kind of guys who really lift and move heavy objects for a living. We're all in science for a reason perhaps. Nevertheless if you're winded after carrying a 4L jug of high purity water across the hall you're not my first choice for moving a 300lb, million dollar instrument.

Yeah, better safe than sorry. Women are bad drivers too - so don't let them do that either.

No no, science says they're better drivers. If anything we should reconsider allowing males under the age of 25 drive. Women on average can't lift as much as men though.

Ok sure. But if you're telling me that to get a 300lb multi-million dollar machine (likely one that's sensitive to movement) from here to there that you simply slinging it over your shoulder and he-man it around the laboratory - you're likely the one that is doing it wrong and jeopardizing the functionality of the equipment.

But hey, I believe you. It's a laboratory, and even though your employer may hire women to do the same job as you - don't let them do it.

If people can move stuff they can help with the moving stuff, it just tends not to happen. This isn't the military any anything, we don't usually get the kind of applicants where you're in awe of their physical prowess. More likely you get a look that says "you want me to do what?" when the idea of lifting or moving something comes up.

The lab grown steak cost like half a million dollars and tasted pretty bad since they can't grow fat yet. But who knows, maybe in a decade or two they'll get there and we can eat all the crazy meats we want.
