So, any opinions on this?

Every once is a while, I have seen yeast cling to the same side of all the bottles in a case of bottle conditioned beer. I have never noticed a geographic orientation, but maybe I have not paid enough attention. A simple twist causes the yeast to fall to the bottle's bottom.

After I looked at the pics in that article, I had to check the date to see if it had been posted on April 1. They are pretty amusing.

As for the substance, I'm intrigued. Would it be possible to create a continuous (as opposed to batch-oriented) fermenting system using magnetic traps for the yeast? Not sure I'd want to build on at home. But it might make a big difference in process efficiency for a larger brewer.

Actually very interesting.

It is not surprising though because Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and Magnetic resonance Tomography (MRT), are now common diagnostic testing procedures used frequently in medicine.

The Yeast's "smile" faces are a plus!
