- The study or practice of fermentation in brewing, winemaking, or distilling.
“Zach was experimenting with zymurgy techniques and attempting to make mead from his neighbor’s hive.”
“The distillery offered zymurgy classes as part of its facility tour.”
“Home zymurgy hobbies have become quite popular in the last several years.”
Greek, mid-19th century
Why this word?
“Zymurgy” is the last word in many standard English dictionaries, but not all. The second edition of the Oxford English Dictionary ends with “zyxt” (an obsolete version of the verb “to see”), and Century Dictionary ends with “zyxomma” (a type of dragonfly).
