Shouldn't yeast be an acceptable answer for ingredients allowed in beer? The original law did not specify yeast, but that was simply because at the time they didn't understand how it worked. They used either a sample from a previous batch or airborne yeast to ferment the beer. Besides, the current German Beer Law allows more ingredients: water, malt barley, wheat malt, cane sugar, hops, and yeast. The law to which you refer no longer exists.

The law is the Bavarian law so its not a huge leap to understand its the oringinal law of 1512 which is pretty well known (hence general knowledge)

Why is the Egyptian Book of the Dead the only one accepted? The Tibetans also have one that they still use today (stay back, trolls, I know Tibet isn't a country). And what about the Aztec and Mayan books of the dead? Also very famous.

The Popol Vuh (Maya and appropriated by Aztecs) is much more than a "Book of the Dead" - it's the story of how the world has been created and destroyed 4x over and the great heroes that tricked the gods into allowing humans to live on the earth, among other things. Though it's sometimes known as the Mayan Book of the Dead, it's significance is far greater to Mayan culture, and scope much more broad than Egypt's Book of the Dead.

I thought "hops" is what a bunny did and "hopps" is what they put in beer. I gave up after trying that because I'm used to missing the alcohol questions, but I actually knew the answer for once.

Sorry Kal, the word is Hops, there are Hop Kilns in Kent and the Hops grow in rows nearby. Never heard the Hopp version.

It's okay. Sports and alcoholic beverages are my two weaknesses here. They've cost me many points each.

Maybe you should add the generic name for medicines (at least in brackets) as the brand names are different depending on which country you are in.

I wish cab drivers in Brisbane were made to memorise all of the streets. None of them can even drive you around the corner without even consulting their gps. The cab companies test to see if they pass the rudeness test and then give them the job.

Adderall is also a first-line treatment for narcolepsy. Unfortunately, I know this first-hand.

Not sure the Tudors would be considered a dynasty... perhaps 'Household/Royal Household' would be a more accurate term. e.g. House of Tudor, House of Windsor etc.
