I originally got into brewing because I was convinced that a homebrew was much better for you than a commercial filtered beer (justification). That was 10 years ago. I was even able to convince my University to fund a brew club on the grounds that it was nutritionally sound (I'm a nutrition student, of course). I've still yet to find a decent breakdown of vitamins and minerals in anything other than your standard American lager (i.e. Miller), which is pretty poor. I did get an e-mail once from a microbrew company that did some initial testing of vitamins that showed that beer can be a great source of certain vitamins. Unfortunately, they analyzed only a few of them. Since then I've read brief reports on the health benefits of hops (I know there herbal medicine properties). I've a feeling that the FDA is keeping a tight hold on research because they don't want the public to discover that beer, if made right, is a good food source rich in vitamins and minerals. I guess what I'm really searching for is a comparison study between different beers, including unfiltered homebrews, that looks at a wide range of vitamins and minerals. Anybody got any leads on this one. I really don't have the time to do the study myself, but may just have to.Eat Well,Rusty
