In one of our first year biology lab we were testing for
macromolecules such as sugars and proteins. While using the
Benedict's test we discovered that beer not only reacted with the
Benedict's solution to yield a colour change, but it also led to an
apparant precipitation of cuprous oxide. I have asked around and I
can't get a straight answer on why it reacted this way....HELP!
