Since UC Davis has multiple departments and 2 buildings (the Mondavi Institute of Wine and Food Science) dedicated to this topic ...
For the safety and regulatory piece of it, reach out to Lucy Joseph - cmjoseph**At_Symbol_Here**ucdavis.edu - she's the safety coordinator for Food Science and Technology, and Viticulture and Enology. Also, Tony Schrick - tschrick**At_Symbol_Here**ucdavis.edu - is the EH&S liaison to these departments.
Hope this helps,

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Policy Inquiry about fermentation science
Here is a question that came to the ACS that someone on this list might be able to help with.
Hello, I was wondering if you could direct me towards someone who might have information on my questions below:
We are looking at starting a new chemistry - fermentation degree to try and increase interest in chemistry and invigorate our program. We traditionally have very few non-health career majors and fermentation is a growing area of interest I was wondering if someone would answers to a couple question we have:
- As an academic facility, are there any special regulatory rules that you have to following when dealing with beer/wine from an academic/research perspective?
- Would we have to follow all the regulations of brewing and alcohol commissions or is our academic standing to handle chemicals sufficient?
I realize regulations may differ by State, but was wondering how much paperwork we are potentially up against.
Thanks for any information you could provide, Dave
