An App That Knows If Beer Has Gone Stale

This could quite possibly be one of the greatest apps ever invented. Beer normally doesn't last long around these parts but I'm sure this would be handy for those of you with home bars that don't drink one hundred and sixty five beers a month. wink

Now, a team of chemists, led by the researchers Elena Benito-Peأ±a and Marأ­a Cruz Moreno-Bondi from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), has developed a simple, low-cost method capable of measuring whether or not beer has gone stale, simply by using a sensor and a smartphone app. The results of the study have been published in the journal Analytical Chemistry.
