    This paper uses genetic algorithms to optimise the mathematical model of a beer fermentation process that operates in batch mode. The optimisation is based in adjusting the temperature profile of the mixture during a fixed period of time in order to reach the required ethanol levels but considering certain operational and quality restrictions.
