Scientific Digest


In 1893 Morris and Brown reported, "We are now to ascertain how far the sugars of the hop are accountable for the after-fermentation induced of dry-hopping." This phenomenon is familiar to craft brewers and in 1941 Walker proposed that a maltase enzyme in hops is responsible for this. This U.S. research team was able to confirm with dry-hopping an increase in VDK production and a decrease in gravity. Testing at different temperatures, they were able to show that the secondary fermentation that takes place at 70 degrees F is reduced when the temperature is lowered to 60 degrees F before dry-hopping.

Brewery news USA: AB InBev’s sales in the US down 5.6% in Q3
Anheuser-Busch InBev, the owner of Budweiser, Bud Light and Stella Artois, said that beer sales in the U.S. fell 5.6% in the third quarter, KITV Honolulu reported on October 26.

Those are shockingly bad numbers when you consider that they came during the start of the football season and as the baseball pennant races were heating up with teams getting ready for the playoffs. Shares of BUD fell 2% on the news.

It's also a sign that AB InBev's push to brand Budweiser beer as "America" on bottles and cans during what the company called its "American Summer" may have failed to catch on with suds-loving consumers.

AB InBev said that market share for Budweiser and the lower calorie Bud Light fell in the U.S. during the quarter.

Beer snobs in the U.S. are increasingly choosing fancier and pricier craft brews over established brands like Bud.

AB InBev has recognized this and has been on a microbrew shopping spree over the past few years, scooping up popular brands like Goose Island, 10 Barrel Brewing and Blue Point.

The company also has a significant minority stake in Craft Brew Alliance, the publicly traded firm that owns the Kona, Redhook and Widmer Brothers brands of beer.

Barley news Canada: Alberta malting barley quality looking fairly good this year
Despite a wet spring and problems with dryness in the summer, barley in central Alberta is looking fairly good, according to a grower in the Red Deer area, the Alberta Express reported on October 25.

“We had a really good malt crop this year, the quality is excellent,” said Matt Hamill of Red Shed Malting at Red Deer. “It is high-yield, high-weight, looks really good for malting.”

That’s in stark contrast to some areas in the southern Prairies where questions remain about the quality of the harvest.

The wet spring also eliminated some intended acres, leaving this year’s crop roughly 10 per cent smaller than last year.

According to Statistics Canada, 5.77 million acres of barley were seeded in Canada in 2017. Of that total, Alberta accounted for 2.85 million.

There are ideas that U.S. buyers are looking for Canadian malt due to the drought problems plaguing barley in the northern U.S.

However, prices seem to be a touch on the softer side right now, likely due to the recent harvest.

“Malt is a little higher than C$4 (per bushel); it’s more in the C$4.75 range right now,” said Hamill. “I think most farmers will probably want $5 before they let it go, though.”

Hops news UK: Local brewer benefits from decision to grow its own hops
With some imported hops costing 60% more than a year ago, Surrey-based Hogs Back Brewery says it is benefiting from its decision to grow its own varieties on a 3.5-acre plot adjacent to its brewery near Farnham, the Morning Advertiser reported on October 26. It has just harvested its third hop crop, accounting for approximately 15% of its annual requirement.

It hopes to eventually grow a quarter of the hops it uses and to source 70% within walking distance of the brewery.

This year saw hops dried in a new oast house, built just three miles from the brewery and the first in Surrey for more than 50 years.

Managing director Rupert Thompson said the initiative is part of its commitment to local sourcing, reducing food miles, sustainable brewing and taking greater control of the ingredients in its beers.

"The hike in hop prices, firstly because of a shortage of US varieties and then the post-Brexit referendum fall in sterling has subsequently delivered another benefit, as growing our own hops gives a level of control over one of our key ingredients,” he said.

British hops have aroma notes said to include tangerine, citrus, grass, grapefruit, chocolate, blackcurrant, ...More info on site

Whisky news India: United Spirits reports 86% increase in standalone net profit in the quarter to September 30
United Spirits Ltd (USL), India’s largest liquor maker, on October 26 said standalone net profit rose 86% in the quarter ended September, helped by a strong performance by its premium brands, Livemint reported.

Profit rose to Rs153.1 crore in the three months from Rs82.5 crore a year ago. Revenue rose to Rs6,245.1 crore from Rs6,051.2 crore, the company owned by Diageo Plc. said in a filing with the BSE.

The apex court’s decision to prohibit all liquor sales within 500 metres of state and national highways last year has hurt sales volumes across the alcoholic beverage industry. In July, USL said the impact of the ban will spill over into the next two quarters, i.e. until December, albeit to a lesser extent. On October 26, USL reiterated that the impact of the ban will continue to ease and business will return to normal by the end of the December quarter.

“In the second quarter, we have delivered strong underlying net sales growth of 4% driven by 12% growth in the prestige and above segment, despite the impact of the highway ban,” chief executive officer Anand Kripalu said in a statement.

USL’s biggest competitor in India, French liquor firm Pernod Ricard SA, also said that ...More info on site
