The fermentation of sugar into alcohol, scientifically called Ethanol, is one of the earliest biotechnologies employed by humans. Dried residue on 9,000-year-old pottery found in China implies that Neolithic people consumed alcoholic beverages.

To produce ethanol from starchy materials such as cereal grains, the starch must first be converted into sugars. In brewing beer, this has traditionally been accomplished by allowing the grain to germinate, or malt, which produces the enzyme amylase. When the malted grain is mashed, the amylase converts the remaining starches into sugars.
