Reading through Horst Dornbusch's German Beer Institute website is enough to cause me apoplexy. There's just so much that's distorted, misinterpreted or just factually wrong.

"In 1843, only one year after the first Pilsner Urquell was brewed, the Bohemian chemist Carl Joseph Napoleon Balling invented the hydrometer."
Balling did not invent the hydrometer. Richardson, who's credited with being the first to use a hydrometer to measure the gravity of beer in the 1780's, did not invent the hydrometer. The instrument had been around for centuries and had been used by distillers since at least the 17th century.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5445569787371915337-7608705258873345360?l=barclayperkins.blogspot.com
