0 Thailand: Tax revenue from alcohol sales rose 4% during the first 10 days of the FIFA World Cup

Tax revenue from alcohol sales over the first 10 days of the World Cup tournament rose 4% from the year before, according to the Excise Department, Bangkok Post released June 21.

Utid Tamwatin, the department's director-general, said tax collections on beer and other alcohol had been in decline during the first few months of the year. The rise was clearly due to the high interest in the football competition, he said.

''But the fact remains that while taxes have risen over the past two weeks, it won't have a major impact on tax revenue this year, since the tournament lasts for just one month,'' Mr Utid said.

The Excise Department estimated that its revenue this year would fall short of the original target of THB312.5 billion, by THB32 billion, or around 10%.

Declining tax revenue was blamed on lower cigarette and alcohol sales thanks to government anti-smoking and anti-drinking campaigns.

The Customs Department has also indicated that its tax revenue would fall short of the 120.4-billion-baht target by around nine billion baht, as tariff rates dropped under trade liberalisation policies.

For the first eight months of the fiscal year from October 2005 to May 2006, net revenue stood at THB918.5 billion, 0.7% above the target and ...

Scientific Digest
Effect of Amyloglucosidase on Properties of Lager Beers Produced from Sorghum Malt and Waxy Grits
Diana A. Urias-Lugo and S. O. Serna Saldivar, Department of Food Science and Technology and Center of Biotechnology. Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey-Campus Monterrey. Av. Eugenio Garza Sada 2501 Sur, C.P. 64849 Monterrey, N.L. México

J. Am. Soc. Brew. Chem. 63(2):63-68, 2005
A trifactorial experiment with a level of confidence of P < 0.05 was performed to study worts and lagers produced with barley or sorghum malts, refined maize (MZ), or waxy sorghum (WXSOR) grits treated during mashing with or without amyloglucosidase (AMG). Worts were produced from the different malts, type of adjunct, and enzyme treatment combinations following a double-mashing procedure. The diastatic activity levels of the barley and sorghum malts were 119 and 20°Lintner, respectively. The barley malt produced 35% more 12°Plato (°P) wort with higher amounts of free amino nitrogen and total fermentable carbohydrates compared with counterparts produced from sorghum malt. The barley malt wort contained higher amounts of maltose but lower amounts of glucose compared with the sorghum malt wort. The WXSOR grits produced worts with similar yield and properties as did the worts produced from MZ grits. AMG addition led to a 3% increment on wort yield and increased glucose from 9.3 to 21.5 g/L of wort and total fermentable sugar equivalents from 59.2 to 72.6 g/L of wort. After 144 hr of fermentation, lagers from barley malt and treated with AMG contained 1.0 and 0.25% units higher ethanol than did the counterparts produced from sorghum malt and without AMG. For AMG treated beers, nonsignificant differences in ethanol content were observed between samples mashed with barley malt and beers produced from sorghum malt and MZ grits. Results demonstrated that AMG could be used to increase the initial amount of fermentable sugars especially in sorghum mashes. Keyword: Sorghum beer
