How to efficiently dry hop?

A work presented at the Young Scientist Symposium was looking into the different methodologies of dry hopping in the US. In comparing different methods these researchers found that dry hopping with pellets (compared to cone hops) yielded in a better aroma extraction but also higher polyphenol values. It was also found that stirring increases the aroma extraction compared to static dry hopping (even with very long contact time). The concentration of selected marker compounds, as linalool or geraniol, did not increase further after approximately 6hrs. So dry hopping can perhaps be accomplished much faster than generally believed?

Brewery news UK: Carlsberg to reduce Tuborg’s alcohol volume
Carlsberg is looking to bolster the premium positioning of its Tuborg brand in the UK as it cuts the alcohol volume of the drink, Marketing Week reported on April, 5.

The brewer is developing a marketing campaign to convince drinkers the lowering of the abv from 4.6 per cent to 4 per cent will not compromise the taste.

It aims to make the beer brand more “accessible” to younger drinkers, the Danish brewer says, in response to research it conducted which revealed they want a lower-strength premium word beer.

Carlsberg uses music tie-ups and digital marketing to promote Tuborg’s aspirational positioning to younger drinkers, however by cutting the beer’s alcohol volume it hopes to broaden the beer’s appeal among men and women. The move will see the brand go head-to-head with world beers such as Molson Coor’s Corona, which has developed a strong following among casual drinkers through its premium positioning despite being a lower strength beer.

The strategy has been echoed by rival brewers in the past including AB Inbev’s Stella Artois and Diageo’s Guinness as the industry looks to claw back drinkers who have moved to cheaper ciders and rival lower ABV alternatives.

A spokeswoman for Carlsberg says: “We pride ourselves on responding ...More info on site

Brewery news Malaysia & China: Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Managing Director to become CEO of Carlsberg Greater China
Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Bhd said Henrik Juel Andersen will assume the role of managing director come July 1, replacing Soren Ravn, 39, who will become CEO of Carlsberg Greater China, The Sun Daily reported.

Carlsberg Malaysia oversees the Malaysia and Singapore operations.

Andersen, 46, is currently regional CEO of Carlsberg IndoChina, a position he has held for five years. He has also held general management positions for Carlsberg in Vietnam, China and Taiwan.

In a statement on April, 24, Carlsberg Malaysia said Ravn and Andersen will be working closely to ensure a smooth transition and handover in Malaysia and Singapore over the next few months.

Meanwhile, Ravn in his new role will oversee China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, which is a key component of Carlsberg Group's growth platform in Asia.

Comprising 41 breweries, with more than 15,000 employees and around 3 billion litres of annual beer sales, Carlsberg Greater China is one of the largest volume contributors to the Carlsberg group.

Brewery news Pakistan: Murree Brewery announces earnings results for quarter to March, 31
Murree Brewery, Pakistan’s most prominent manufacturer of alcoholic products, has announced its earnings results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 (3QFY13) and the nine months of the ongoing fiscal year (9MFY13), The Express Tribune reported on April, 25.

The company recorded a profit of Rs175.94 million for the quarter, up an impressive 18% year-on-year (YoY). Its 9MFY13 profit, meanwhile, has registered a staggering 63% increase over the same period of the preceding year. The company has decided not to pay out any dividends with the result.

Murree Brewery has the distinction of being one of the oldest public companies of the subcontinent. Its shares were traded on the Calcutta Stock Exchange as early as 1902, and it is now the oldest continuing industrial enterprise in Pakistan. It ranks among the top 25 performing public listed companies at the Karachi Stock Exchange, according to some accounts.

The company does not advertise its products, and is legally prohibited from exporting them. Nonetheless, it is valuable contributor to the economy, having paid nearly Rs314 million in taxes on profits alone so far this fiscal year, apart from the duties and taxes levied on the sale of its products. That figure is 74% higher than ...More info on site

Barley news Kazakhstan: Barley area may be 1.6 mln ha this year
Kazakhstan's farmers have planted about 300,000 hectares (741,300 acres) of wheat so far and may sow a total 13 million hectares of the grain, farm adviser Agritel forecast earlier this week.

Spring planting in the country, which accounts for more than 95 percent of crop area, is just starting, the Paris-based company wrote on its website. Kazakhstan's barley area may be 1.6 million hectares, Agritel predicted.

The country harvested 12.4 million hectares of wheat and 1.6 million hectares of barley last year, with production of 9.84 million tons and 1.5 million tons respectively after drought hurt yields, U.S. Department of Agriculture data show.

In Kazakhstan's three main grain-growing regions of the country, soil-water reserves are improved compared to last year, Agritel said.
