Guinness Science - Sixty Symbols

Pubblicato il 1 ago 2011
Strange bubbles and foam are part of the allure of Guinness - at least when you discuss it with an Irish physicist.

Sixty Symbols is in Dublin discussing the nation's much-loved beverage.

  • Although the passion and insight into the physics is impressive, I’m more impressed he was able to sit there talking about it that long without drinking it

  • "From one aspect this is interesting, because you can argue that it's a bit stereotypical that they've taken an Italian like Irishman from Sixty Symbols and dumped him in a pub. What's perhaps not quite so stereotypical is that I'm a teetotaler. I don't drink alcohol." The Brit drinks the Guinness. 🤘

  • “Lord Kelvin was from Belfast and depending on your point of view, was another Irish physicist “ ☺️

  • Pint anyone?

  • I know this video is 7 years old but it appears the link to the research paper is no longer available.

  • "Not bad, actually." How diplomatic. Tell it like it is, it looks like someone has scooped a glassful from a sheugh, and it tastes just like that too.

  • Tree🤣🤣🤣I love Prof. Moriarty🦃

  • Guinness is undeniable the worlds most interesting drink. 1) For physicists, the physics of the bubbles (see video) 2) Biotechnologists, it's a fermentation product, which is a perfect blend of microbiology (yeast metabolism), engineering and cooking....an art form :). Also you have the chemistry of bitterness (alpha acids) and the darker colour of the beer (Maillard Reaction). 3) Statisticians, Guinness brewer developed the students t-test, which is an important statistical test. 4) Entrepreneurs, Originally in 1759 Guinness had the lease for their site for 9,000 years at 45 pounds a year. Although since they bought the land, making the lease redundant.

  • Fantastic video. It’s my fave beverage of choice

  • I watched this video probably five years ago and it made me give Guiness a go. Now it's my go-to beer. Strangly enough I started watching Sixty Symbols videos a year or so ago and never realised that it was the same channel until now.

  • Okay, I'm new to the channel. What the heck does sixty symbols mean?

  • Physics is awesome! Nothing like a rainbow, the Northern Lights, or the beautiful bubbles in a freshly poured glass of Guinness to remind us of that! Cheers to this video and to the great folks who gave us Guinness! Now I am going to walk three blocks to the beer store to procure myself some tasty Guinness.

  • Point Tree percent

  • How to amaze the ladies with a Guiness

  • Planet killing CO2

  • Gotta love the enthusiasm. This is a guy who knows his beer. And then he doesn't drink it.

  • I will never look at a pint of Guinness the same way again

  • How can a man just sit there looking at a full guiness for 9 minutes?

  • I'd like to punch this gabby Dubliner in the face, then hug him, buy him a beer, sing a song and cry with him, and then punch him again, etc.

  • Never thought that a Guinness cascade was this incredibly complex.

  • am I really watching a drink!

  • Gotta say that I feel like a Guinness after watching this.

  • Space bla bla bla, but let's get back to the guiness xD

  • sixygirl

  • I thought Albert Einstein created the bubbles in beer. He split an atom with an axe in his shed.

    • oh, wait, that was young Einstein.

  • This had to be filmed in dublin because guinness tastes like shite outside ireland in comparison.

  • best Guinness video on the internet !!!

  • Guinness tastes the best in Ireland

  • visit us at Murrays for the perfect Pint!

    • Jason Neu shut it

    • You do know that unpaid advertisement is not allowed under the IT-tvs community guidelines? It can get your account suspended because you're basically using youtube for advertisement without paying IT-tvs.

  • Thanks for the cool video. I just came from Ireland (Dublin and Cork) and also did the connoisseurs tasting at the Guinness Storehouse, and learned these exact things. Thanks again so much, makes me already miss the place.

  • Always get upset that the ones at the market I buy do not hit the edge of the Guinness authentic glasses like in the commercials.

  • Sylvia is bae

  • So it’s a liquid that’s been permeated by a gas, so its volume can change, but due to the distribution of surface tension and other such physical properties of liquids throughout the substance it can retain its shape much like a solid.

  • Off to get me a 6 pack of Guinness.

    • A six pack? Nah I'd rather go for a whole box, gets you 4 times the fun of a six pack :P

  • Drink the Guinness!!!

  • table slightly tilted, was bugging how beautiful the beer looked

  • Not gonna lie this video made me want to drink a guinness. Off to ye olde pub with me

  • 2:05 Rayleigh scattering!

    • +Brendan Ward A pint of ol' Rayleigh's please

  • It's a disgusting beer that tastes like burnt charcoal...

    • Archishman Ghosh That's because if you have beer in mind.... Its not! It's stout and properly poured the best in the world sir.

  • oh mate, Sup from Dublin to ya

  • how punched would i get if i admitted that i hate guinness in ireland?

    • A nats chance in a supernova

  • I love how only people from ROI and NI are the only people that actually care about ROI and NI being two separate countries and being from NI doesn't mean you are technically Irish (depending on your view of whether NI should be linked the the UK or not) and no matter the way you say it you'll always struggle to get that Northern Ireland the republic are two separate countries like North and south Korea (btw I am from NI)

  • I'm thirsty now ....

  • you have the patients of the Gods sitting there for 5 minutes with a well poured glass of Guennis without drinking

  • Guniness ordered in bulk for "research" purposes :D :P Well played Physicists, well played!

    • Well, you know what Niels Bohr did after he won a nobel prize! If you don't search in google Niels Bohr and beer :-)

  • I'm among the very few people of Irish descent that dislikes Guinness. Great video, though!

  • A really disgusting stout! Tasteless and dull!

  • Every Irish person i have spoken to about Guinness, says it is one of the lower grade beers in Ireland, and it is more popular out of Ireland.

  • I'm waiting for this guy to propose to this beer, but sadly it never happens.

  • full sellout mode

  • I love this channel

  • Hey fun fact tree is the proper way to say three over a radio just like the one everyone knows changing nine to niner the th sound sounds to much like static and five is also changed to fife because of a reverb sound with the v thousand is tousand

    • +Seth Peters Iv'e done radio phonetics in a security course here in Ireland and they never but maybe that's because we already say it that way.

  • may i ask: why have you chosen to be a teetotaler?

  • Why'd the guy sip it and say "not bad"? Has he never had a Guinness before???

    • +Al Ttool The old explanation is: "Guiness doesn't travel well". I experienced it myself, when I went on vacation to Dublin with my dad, Guinness there tastes different than in England or Germany. I can really recommend to visit the Guinness factory when in Dublin, it's really impressive. It's more like a Guinness museum to touch and experience than a classic factory-tour. You can even learn how to pour a Guinness there and you're getting a certificate afterwards. :) Kind regards, Meta Custom Computers

  • anyone else really want a guinness right now ?

  • You made me want to drink a Guinness now!

  • how many Guinness can a person drink in one sitting?

    • +chris doherty I wash me breakfast Down with 10 pints

    • +Jodhan Bhagwandat If you can't drink more than ten pints you're not worthy

  • *This episode of Sixty Symbols is sponsored by Guinness.*

  • the reason they use Guinness is because they can drink the experiment afterwards.

  • Lol I wonder what 4-foam would look like. Like relativistic foam, like spacetime packing.
