A little Google gets the process rolling...
... Since ATP is a proxy for how much bacteria is present
That's not how you make beer of course
That suggests the biochemist is aware that a beer would
be rich in ATP, as it's a marker of some sort of "activity" (fermentation???).
"ATP is a versatile molecule used by enzymes and other proteins
in many cellular processes. It is required for many chemical reactions,
such as sugar degradation and fermentation (Voet & Voet 2004)"
It suggests the biochemist has been in the lab too long,
and needs a break
