Scientific Digest

Bitter acids

The rule of thumb for the yield of bitter acids (specifically iso-alpha acids) in brewing is about 30%, which is not a lot. German researchers found out that reversible, pH dependent hop acid complexes including iron ions are mainly responsible for the loss of BU during brewing. The loss is mainly during hot break and at the beginning of fermentation. However it is possible to recover the bitter acids from the hot break and yeast under alkaline and high temperature conditions, which consequently transfers the lost alpha acids in isoalpha acids, which can be used for other beers. The good side-effect is that pro-oxidative acting iron ions are separated this way and don't ruin your beer.

Whisky news USA: Diageo planning new distillery in Kentucky
Diageo has revealed plans to spend US$115 mln on a new distillery in the US state of Kentucky to capitalise on American whiskey’s surging popularity.

The company is proposing to build a 1.8 mln proof gallon distillery and six-barrel storage warehouses in Shelby County, it announced on May 29. Diageo said it expects to break ground on the 300-acre site in “the coming months” with an aim to having the distillery operational by “late 2016”.

The facility will produce a number of “current and future” of Diageo’s Bourbon and North American whiskey brands, the company said. The $115 mln investment will be over a three-year period.

The plans remain subject to approval by local government.

Earlier this year, the company became embroiled in a war of words with Jack Daniel's producer Brown-Forman over proposed changes to relax the rules on what defines a Tennessee whiskey.
