The Provincial Government of Aland has delivered one of the retrieved bottles of beer to VTT, where its analysis has begun. VTT will study what microbes %u2013 for example, yeast or lactic acid bacteria %u2013 remain in the beer. DNA analyses also allow the study of dead cells. Additionally, VTT will use chemical analyses to determine what kind of raw materials were used in the brewing of the beer. (Image: AP)
