Scientific Digest

Where the aroma hides in hops and other fruits

If it is about sulfur containing aroma compounds in hops, this research group is leading the way. Several of their projects in the past years focused on polyfunctional thiols in beers. In 2012 the team reported the evidence of S-cysteine conjugates. Now they have subjected 4 different hop varieties, Saaz (CZ), Tomahawk (US), Cascade (US) and Nelson Sauvin (NZ) to an enzyme treatment (a β-lyase treatment, apotryptophanase) to see which free thiols would be detectable and to estimate the flavor potential of these hidden flavor compounds. Free thiols were then extracted and quantified by GC-PFPD. Polyfunctional thiols with sensory impact are known in the wine industry and were also identified in different fruits. Furthermore cysteine- and glutathione-S-conjugates have also been found in passion fruit juice, onions and bell peppers. The Cascade hop variety exhibited the highest potential, with 1641μg/kg of 3-Mercapto-hexan-1-ol (grapefruit) released. This value is 14 to 22 times the amount of free thiols previously found in this variety (73-117 μg/kg) By comparison, the treatment of Tomahawk, Nelson Sauvin and Saaz extracts released only 276, 261 and 316 μg/kg of this compound, respectively. Also the yield of other components were quite remarkable. Free the fruits in your hops with the help of enzymes!

Brewery news Germany: German brewers win government backing to protect springs from fracking
German brewers have won government backing to protect the springs they use from fracking, which they say could taint the purity of their beer, Irish Independent reported on March 2.

The government plans to allow federal states to identify locations where fracking can't take place to preserve the quality of the ground water used by brewers and producers of bottled mineral water, the Environment Ministry said last week.

"We need clean water to produce our beer," said Friedrich Duell, president of the Bavarian Brewers Association.

"If our wells aren't protected our business is threatened.

"Fracking is a high-risk technology and we've seen water tainted in other countries often enough," said Mr Duell, whose 350-year-old brewery in Krautheim in the south German region of Franconia operates two wells.

The country's Ä8 bln brewing industry argues fracking for natural gas could endanger the quality of German beer, which is protected by the world's oldest food-safety regulation still in effect. Beer is ever-present at Germany's thousands of biergartens and at celebrations such as Munich's Oktoberfest.

Chancellor Angela Merkel was among politicians last week seen partaking of the beverage at the annual carnival festivities.

The Reinheitsgebot, or "purity law", was drafted in 1516 and states that only malted barley, hops and ...More info on site

Brewery news Russia: Heinekenís Siberia plant starts brewing rice beer
Dutch brewing giant Heineken's Irkutsk plant has commenced shipping of a new beer brand Feilong, the company's first beverage in the Asian rice beer segment, according to SIA.ru.

The beer is to be produced and distributed in Eastern Siberia, a region with close connections to Asian traditions owing to its proximity to China.

Brewed using a traditional recipe, Feilong beer is made with rice, which gives the brew a very mild flavor and golden color. It is an ideal accompaniment to hot and spicy Chinese dishes. This light pasteurized beer (4.3 percent alcohol content) will be produced in 480-ml cans and 1.4-liter plastic bottles. It will be delivered to markets and local retail networks. "We are pleased to introduce you to the new member of the Heineken family, Feilong rice beer - an exciting addition to our portfolio of brands," said director of marketing for Heineken Russia John Cahill to SIA.ru.

"The rice beer segment is quite new to the Russian market. Now it is growing steadily, especially in Siberia and the Far East, where the cultural influence of China and Japan are traditionally strong. The launch of Feilong is an opportunity to compete for leadership in this promising niche for us," ...More info on site

Hops news USA: Michigan hops production may double by 2016
A recently announced project is set to double Michigan hops production by 2016, The Idaho Statesman reported on March 2.

A Traverse City investment group that typically invests in commercial real estate, MI Local Investment, is prepared to break ground on a 400-acre hops farm in Williamsburg once the ground thaws. The sign is posted, the poles are waiting in the snow, according to the Traverse City Record-Eagle.

MI Local Investment President Jason Warren said the project is big for a reason. It follows an agriculture business principle he learned growing up in a cherry farming family on Old Mission Peninsula.

"It's all about economies of scale," Warren said. "If you're going to do it in a meaningful way you have to set yourself up for this size of a farming operation."

The new farm, MI Local Hops, will be larger than most Michigan hops farms, which Michigan State University Extension hops expert Rob Sirrine said typically come in at five to 10 acres.

The state's hops harvest could double along with the swelling acreage, changing the commodity's supply and demand structure and potentially the price.

But Joe Biermacher, a partner at Empire Hops Processing who tends four acres at Biermacher Farms in Grawn, isn't worried ...More info on site
