We have measured the moment A<sup>sinϕLU</sup> corresponding to the polarized electron beam-spin asymmetry in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering. A<sup>sinϕLU</sup> is a twist-3 quantity providing information about quark-gluon correlations. Data were taken with the CLAS Spectrometer at Jefferson Lab using a 5.498 GeV longitudinally polarized electron beam and an unpolarized liquid hydrogen target. All three pion channels (π+, π0 and π−) were measured simultaneously over a large range of kinematics within the virtuality range Q<sup>2</sup>≈ 1.0–4.5  GeV<sup>2</sup>. The observable was measured with better than 1% statistical precision over a large range of z, PT, xB, and Q<sup>2</sup>, which permits comparison with several reaction models. The discussed measurements provide an upgrade in statistics over previous measurements, and serve as the first evidence for the negative sign of the π− sinϕ moment.
