Scientific Digest


A German research team that came up with the idea of extracting hop aroma into beer by applying a combined desorption/absorption process. The process-dependent mass transfer was predicted using two different approaches: a thermodynamic approach, and response surface modelling. The methods offer the following advantages: no beer losses, no clarification steps needed, potential reuse of hops for bittering. Using response surface methodology was clearly superior as compared to calculating the mass transfer using thermodynamic approximations.

Brewery news Japan: Asahi settles dispute over non-alcohol beer with rival Suntory
Asahi Group Holdings Ltd said on July 20 it has settled a dispute with Suntory Holdings Ltd after Suntory accused its rival of infringing a patent for non-alcohol beer, Reuters reported.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

The Tokyo District Court in October rejected a request from Suntory for an injunction to stop Asahi from selling Dry Zero beer, ruling there was no patent infringement. Suntory then appealed the decision in the Intellectual Property High Court.

Suntory has withdrawn its appeal and Asahi will continue making and selling the Dry Zero brew, Asahi said in a statement.

Japan's zero-alcohol beer segment is hotly contested as the country's overall beer market shrinks. Suntory was the top seller of no-alcohol brews in 2014, but was overtaken by Asahi last year.

Barley news France: The worst spring since many years damages barley quality this year
France experienced the worst spring since many years, heavy precipitation, cold temperatures, flooded and lodged fields. It had to be expected that the barley quality would suffer badly from these conditions, but also the size of production will be lower than average and earlier predicted, H. M. Gauger GmbH said in their July report.

FranceAgriMer has lowered the “good to excellent” crop ratings within two weeks for winter barley from 73 to 62% and for spring barley from 86 to 71%. Some early winter barley results from the south of Paris and in the Centre show low yields, low test weight and sieving results, also high protein (due to low yields, while normally rains provide for heavy yields with the risk of low protein).

Of course, conditions are variable in a large country, but Agreste‘s June estimate of a winter barley crop of 9.47 mln tons will probably turn out too high.

Kernel size, protein contents, damaged grains and germination problems could reduce the selection of winter and hopefully to a lesser extent spring malting barley, an estimate is not possible yet.

Barley news Canada: Barley use forecast to increase by 11% in 2015-16 and to be up only marginally in 2016-17
In 2015-16, Canada’s total domestic barley use is forecast to increase by 11% to 6.1 mln tonnes due to increased feed use, with industrial use remaining unchanged, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada reported in July.

Exports are forecast to decrease by 17% to 9.578 mln tonnes due to lower world trade in feed barley.

Carry-out stocks of barley are expected to increase by 15% to 1.4 mln tonnes which is slightly higher than the previous five-year average.

The Lethbridge cash feed barley price is forecast to increase from 2014-15 due to the tight total supply and good domestic feed barley demand. Barley prices at Lethbridge have been pressured by good old crop supplies, a better barley crop on the way and much improved forage and pasture conditions on the Prairies.

For 2016-17, seeded area is forecast to decrease slightly from 2015-16 and production is forecast to decrease by 4% to 8 mln tonnes due to the lower area and a forecast for average yields.

Despite higher carry-in stocks, the lower production will cause total supply to decrease by 2% to 9.5 mln tonnes.

Total domestic use is forecast to increase marginally to 6.3 mln tonnes.

Exports are forecast to remain unchanged despite lower world barley supply, ...More info on site

Barley news UK & Ireland: Low winter barley quality causing concern
Low grain quality is causing concern as more winter barley crops are harvested across southern England and Ireland, while combines have also started moving into oilseed rape, FarmersWeekly reported on July 19.

Barley crops in the East are showing reasonable yields and quality, while early harvests further west and some in the South are seeing yields and quality down on recent seasons.

Harvest is well under way in winter barley crops across the southern half of England, while the first oilseed rape crops were being cut in Essex and Kent earlier this week.

Barley growers blame a lack of sunshine this spring and summer for the pinched grains being seen coming off combines, which is resulting in some low specific weights.

Two large light land Suffolk estates were close to finishing their barley harvest at the end of this week with reasonable yields, but in Dorset and Kent, crops have suffered from the dull weather in June.

In the Suffolk Brecklands, on some of the lightest arable land in Britain, early yields were between 7-8 t/ha and specific weight quality a respectable 65 kg/ha.

Combines moved into winter barley on both the Euston and Elvedon Estates in the south-west corner of Suffolk on near-blow-away sands last ...More info on site

Barley news France: FranceAgriMer’s latest report says less than half wheat and winter barley crops is rated now in good or very good condition
Over the last two to three months, the condition of French wheat and barley crops has become more and more of a hot topic. A special report published on July 12 by FranceAgriMer for AHDB detailed the timetable of crop development for both crops, from favourable back in early spring, to rapidly falling conditions during June.

According to new data from FranceAgriMer’s crop rating system (Céré’Obs), things have worsened further. As at the week ending 11 July, the proportion of France’s soft wheat and winter barley crops rated in good or very good condition is less than half, substantially lower than the previous week. With 49% good/very good for soft wheat, this is the lowest rating since reporting began in 2012.

While FranceAgriMer are reserving judgement on overall quality until the crop is ‘in the bin’, harvesting is now well underway for wheat and barley. This suggests an upturn in crop conditions is unlikely to be on the cards – which could mean implications across the different wheat markets.

FranceAgriMer will publish its first technological quality assessments in August, until then the weekly crop condition reports will remain an important issue for markets.

Barley news World: Major spring price rally on grains and oilseeds markets seems to be over
Due to South American crop damages, grains and oilseeds markets performed a major spring price rally, but have now fallen back to the levels of March/April. One large exemption are soybeans, which defended the higher price level in view of tighter supplies until next harvest in South America, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported early in July.

European wheat and barley had followed the U.S. markets half-heartedly or not at all, the analysts said.

On June 30, the USDA confirmed an unexpected large increase of the corn and small increase of the soybean acreage in the U.S., reinforcing the bearish market mood. In spite of corrected regulations on the major grain exchanges, the computer-programmed, high volume speculative trading of funds has led once again to irrational, huge price fluctuations, badly affecting the hedge business of trade and grain industries.

Barley news UK: Wheat and barley exports in May at their highest combined level since May 1997
UK wheat and barley exports during May were at their highest combined level since May-97, with wheat shipments at 348 thousand tonnes and barley at 127 thousand tonnes. Both crops are coming close to beating current 2015/16 UK export forecasts, HGCA reported on July 13.

Monthly barley exports have started to tail off, with a tighter UK balance compared to wheat. However, for wheat, it was the second largest monthly tonnage of wheat exported this season. If UK export momentum is maintained, UK wheat and barley stocks might not be as high as first anticipated moving into next season, HGCA experts said.

For barley cumulative exports are now at 1.89 mln tonnes, with full season exports currently forecast by Defra at 1.90 mln tonnes. Bar the final 10 thousand tonnes, the current full season forecast has now been hit with one month to go, already implying a tighter balance sheet than previously anticipated.

Barley news UK: AB InBev looking for 40% more high-nitrogen malting barley next year
The brewer of Budweiser beer is looking for 40% more high-nitrogen malting barley next year, which has attracted heavy-land growers looking for a spring cereal break to control blackgrass, FarmersWeekly reported on July 19.

The owner of the beer brand, Anheuser-Busch InBev, will be looking for 35,000t of the high-enzyme French spring barley variety Explorer in 2017 to help meet the needs of its two UK breweries, it is reported. The world’s biggest brewer requires malting barley of 1.8-1.9% grain nitrogen.
