MillerCoors Donates Brewing Equipment for Education

MillerCoors has donated $100,000 worth of brewing equipment to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to be the cornerstone of a new course in brewing and fermentation science.
"This is a unique collaboration and partnership that will incorporate best practices from our breweries into a program that will develop future brewing and fermentation experts and potential employees," said David Ryder, MillerCoors vice president of brewing and research.
You would think that $100,000 should buy a fairly large brewing system, but according to the Capital Times' article it's only ten gallons - a scale common among more advanced homebrewers, all spending orders of magnitude less on their systems. Well, maybe the mash-lauter tun is gold plated? (via Fark)
