Spent hops for haze stability

It is not totally surprising that hops might be the solution to another challenge many brewers have, a stable haze! US researchers looked into the usage of spent hops to increase haze stability. Not only did the spent hop extract show potential to scavenge free radicals; it was also found that haze stability in Pale Ale can be increased by the addition of spent hop extract (0.3-0.5% v/v). Although total protein content in spent hop extract is extremely low to participate in haze stability, Procyanidin B2 and Epicatechin found in spent hops are haze active and antioxidants.

Brewery news Spain: Mahou San Miguel opens collaborative space for domestic and international craft breweries
Mahou San Miguel has opened the first Brewhub in Spain, a collaborative space for domestic and international craft breweries to share ideas and develop beers, for sale in Spain and across Europe, BeverageDaily.com reported on March 29. The €11 mln facility, next to the Mahou San Miguel brewery in Cordoba, is equipped with the latest technology to develop the craft segment at international level.

Alberto Rodríguez-Toquero, MD, Mahou San Miguel, said the company is committed to developing initiatives ‘that enable evolution and growth’.

“The craft movement is a clear example of this transformation and we wish to boost it through a project based on innovation and collaboration,” he said.

“This centre stems from the calling for becoming a point of reference in the artisan brewery sector at an international level.”

Initially, the Brewhub will have a production capacity of 50,000 hectolitres that, through continued expansion, will grow to 110,000 hectolitres and, potentially 500,000 hectolitres.

The facilities have been specifically designed to fulfil the requirements of craft production.

Mahou San Miguel has partnered with Javier Aldea, founder, Nómada Brewing, on the project who will become the manager of the Brewhub.

Mahou San Miguel has completed similar projects with North American artisan breweries founders Brewing and Avery ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea: Consumers and restaurant owners frustrated with Oriental Brewery’s price hikes
Consumers and restaurant owners are expressing frustration with Oriental Brewery (OB) for the brewer's decision to hike beer prices by 5.3 percent from April 4, the Korea Times reported on March 27.

Beer lovers complain it will be more financially burdensome to have a glass of beer with family or friends as many struggle with soaring housing prices and the tight job market. People running restaurants and other eateries say it will be difficult to charge more, despite higher beer prices, in fear of losing customers amid sluggish domestic consumption.

"Why don't domestic beer companies take measures to upgrade instead of raising the price?" Jeon Hyung-joon, 29, a regular beer consumer, said. "From now on, I'd rather spend more money on imported beers or prestigious or specialty beer brands."

Another beer consumer, who asked not to be named, said "I'm worried OB's shift will lead to a collective price rise. If that happens, I'd have to be rational about selecting a beer from restaurants and bars for financial reasons."

Restaurant owners are also wary about the price hike as they are faced with the situation to increase beer prices in accordance to brewers' moves.

"We'll have to see how the industry reacts, but ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Krombacher launches non-alcoholic wheat beer Weizen in the UK
German beer brand Krombacher has expanded its portfolio with the addition of a non-alcoholic wheat beer called Weizen in the UK, the Drinks Insight Network reported on March 28.

With less than 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV), the new non-alcoholic beer is brewed with Hallertau hops and fresh mountain spring water.

This latest drink comes following the launch of Krombacher Low Alcohol Pils.

Krombacher UK and Italy sales and marketing director Stephan Kofler said: “Not only have campaigns like Dry January shown that there is a real demand for low and no alcohol beers but it’s made people realise that there are now some fantastic tasting options available of varying styles.

“Whether it’s down the local pub or at a major supermarket, you’re now seeing plenty of choices and I believe our Weizen will prove a welcome addition to the arena.

“Brewed the same way as our full-strength Weizen but using our special de-alcoholisation process to retain maximum flavour.”

Targeted at the UK on-trade and off-trade, it will be rolled out immediately in 50cl bottles in cases of 12.

Kofler expects the new beer to attract runners and cyclists.

In January 2017, the German brewer introduced a range of non-alcoholic beers in its local market.

Barley news Canada: Barley exports in August-December total 1 mln tonnes with majority going to China
Canada’s barley exports in August – December 2018 were 1 mln tonnes, of which 660 thousand to China, and virtually nothing to the USA, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported on March 2.

The country is excluded from exports to Saudi Arabia, but now markets wonder whether Canadian barley could replace a larger percentage of Australian imports into China.

Canada’s harvested barley acreage was 5.9 mln acres in 2018, was forecast at 6.2 mln for this year, but may even become larger.

Domestic feed use is higher than forecast and may top 6 mln tonnes at the end of the 2018/19 grain year.

Malting and other demand of 1.15 mln tonnes looks stable, but maltsters must be aware of the anticipated large malting barley exports.
