Scientific Digest


Bitter acids


ABSTRACT
The rule of thumb for the yield of bitter acids (specifically iso-alpha acids) in brewing is about 30%, which is not a lot. German researchers found out that reversible, pH dependent hop acid complexes including iron ions are mainly responsible for the loss of BU during brewing. The loss is mainly during hot break and at the beginning of fermentation. However it is possible to recover the bitter acids from the hot break and yeast under alkaline and high temperature conditions, which consequently transfers the lost alpha acids in isoalpha acids, which can be used for other beers. The good side-effect is that pro-oxidative acting iron ions are separated this way and don't ruin your beer.

Brewery news India: SABMiller repositioning Fosterís beer in India
Leading beer marketer SABMiller is repositioning Foster's beer brand in India as it looks to tap potential of the fast emerging market identified as an 'area of focus', The Economic Times reported on May 25.

As part of the repositioning of the Foster's brand, the company is introducing various changes, including new thermo- chromatic packaging and change in names of various brands targeting to tap 'refreshment category' consumers.

"Our quantitative consumer research showed that there is a potential of addressing a big consumer need gap, the need of refreshment which is a core need for the beer category," SABMiller India Marketing Director Darioush Afzali said.

The new 'extra-cold refreshment' positioning of Foster's is focused towards providing consumers with a refreshing beer experience, he added.

Elaborating on the changes being effected, Afzali said: "We are introducing thermo-chromatic packaging for both bottles and, for the first time in India, thermo-chromatic cans, a new taste for our brews of both Foster's Lager and Foster's Gold along with the introduction of an effective extra-cold chain."

Apart from the packaging innovation, Foster's has re-named its existing Foster's Strong variant as Foster's Gold.

Commenting on the company's road map in India, Afzali said: "We will continue ...More info on site

Brewery news Brazil: Beer and football making a powerful team in Brazil
Beer and football make a powerful team in Brazil, which is bracing for a drinking bonanza when it hosts the World Cup, Ndtv.com reported on May 25.

The passion for football is well-known - it has won the World Cup five times.

Brazil is also the world's third largest beer producer - more than 13 billion litres of beer were brewed here in 2013. Such is the country's love of the beverage that you can even buy beer-flavored ice cream.

When the sun is baking the sidewalks off Copacabana beach, the first reaction seems to be to order a beer that Brazilians always say arrives "stupidly" cold.

A recent survey commissioned by brewing giant Ambev, the country's largest company by market value, asked Brazilians to list their national passions. Seventy-seven percent named football; 35 percent said beer.

Now brewers are anticipating a beer boom during the World Cup Brazil will host from June 12 to July 13.

A study released this month by Nielsen and Kantar Worldpanel, commissioned by the Sao Paulo Supermarkets Association, forecast a 37% increase in beer consumption during the World Cup and total sales of 1.8 billion reals ($816 million) during the four weeks.

During the 2010 World Cup, beer sales ...More info on site

Barley news Russia: Grain crop will suffer is rains donít come this week
Russia's grain crop will suffer if rains do not come this week as expected to several growing regions of the country, one of the world's main wheat exporters via the Black Sea, analysts said on May 26. The agriculture ministry forecast the 2014 crop at 100 million tonnes on May 22, its most optimistic estimate so far and up from 95 million tonnes, but gave no reason for the move.

"If there is no rain this week, some optimistic forecasts would have to be downgraded," Dmitry Rylko, the head of the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies (IKAR), said. IKAR, the Moscow-based agricultural consultancy, had kept its 2014 forecast at 94.5 million tonnes, Rylko said. Another leading Russian consultancy, SovEcon, said it was also keeping its 2014 grain crop estimate unchanged at 90 million tonnes.

Rain is needed in the Central and Volga Federal districts, analysts said, but one trader said those districts had enough moisture in the soil for this week and next thanks to rain in early May.

"Conditions are not critical yet and if rains come to the Centre (the Central district) this week as expected the situation can be fixed quickly," SovEcon head Andrey Sizov said.
