Scientific Digest


US researchers looked into several parameters that can influence IBU values such as pH, ABV, alpha acid addition and dry hopping in general. In a pH range from 4.1 to 4.9 they found that below a pH of 4.35 bitterness is perceived less intensely and described with sour and astringent. Above 4.35 bitterness is perceived more intensely and described being lingering. It was also found that dry hopping actually reduces the perceived bitterness while increasing the tested IBU values.

Brewery news Vietnam: Sabeco set to list on Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange on December 12
Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage, known as Sabeco, is set to list its shares on Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange (HOSE) on Dec. 12, eight years after its initial public offering, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on November 17.

The shares will start trading at 110,000 dong. Currently, Sabeco's shares are trading off-exchange at 130,000 dong, making the market value of the company 83.4 trillion dong ($3.6 billion).

Sabeco has charter capital of 6.4 trillion dong, equivalent to more than 641 million shares. Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade holds an 89.59% stake in Sabeco, while Heineken has 5%.

Analysts speculated that the small amount of current floating shares will push the price up after the listing. The government's plans to sell a 53.6% stake in Sabeco this year and the remaining 36% stake next year following the divestment progress would make the shares more attractive to investors.

The main bourse listing process was sped up by the company and relevant authorities after Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc put the company's divestment under direct supervision of his cabinet.

Sabeco is the largest beer producer in Vietnam with 1.38 billion litres a year and held a 41% market share last year, followed by Heineken (729 ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Carlsberg brewery in Northampton still closed after ammonia leak that killed one man
Production at the Carlsberg factory in Northampton has been stopped for a week since the ammonia leak at the plant on November 9, Northampton Herald and Post reported on November 16.

On November 9, a man in his forties died following a gas leak at the Carlsberg factory and a 51 year old man who was taken to hospital is in a serious but stable condition.

Nine other people including staff from Carlsberg and emergency s‎ervice personnel were also taken to hospital for treatment.

A joint Police and Health and Safety Executive investigation is likely to continue over the coming weeks.

Julian Momen, chief executive officer, Carlsberg UK said: "It's only a matter of days since we were all affected by the tragic incident at our brewery.

"Our thoughts remain with the families of all of those impacted. We are continuing to offer everyone concerned with the support they may require.

"We are now focusing on assisting the authorities with their investigation so that we can understand what happened.

"We have also put in place the necessary plans to re-start aspects of production on the site, but we will only do this at the appropriate time and in a controlled manner.

"We will continue to provide further updates ...More info on site

Brewery news Germany: Carlsberg urged to drop three patents on beer and barley it received earlier this year
Three new patents on beer and barley should be dropped by European breweries, non-governmental organizations said. The alliance "No Patents on Seeds" accused Denmark's Carlsberg of abusing a centuries-old tradition, DW reported on November 17.

The European Patent Office (EPO) in Munich and the Carlsberg company were sloshed on November 17 in an open letter by campaigners opposed to the patenting of plants and animals.

No Patents on Seeds, an alliance including Greenpeace, the Catholic charity Misereor, and globally networked small-scale farmers, called on the Danish brewer to voluntarily relinquish three patents it received earlier this year from the EPO.

Documents published by the EPO also list Heineken of the Netherlands as a patent proprietor.

In two patents granted to Carlsberg and Heineken in April, the EPO upheld inventors' claims that barley mutations provided new enzymes to develop "more distinctive," flavor-stable beers and also had less dimethyl sulfide (DMS) that can give beer an undesirable 'cooked sweet corn' taste.

From their third patent, which was granted in September, the brewers expect major energy savings during malting and kiln-drying by using barley varieties low in linoleic acid, allowing cooler temperatures during the so-called "wort" to remove stale flavors.

Half of the brew-house energy usage occurred during these ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Labatt brewery retirees will no longer get fee beer as part of their pension benefit package
A free beer allotment for Labatt brewery retirees — which was part of the workers' pension benefit package for more than five decades — will soon go flat, CBC.ca reported on November 13.

Labatt has announced the long-standing perk will be phased out by Jan.1, 2019 because it's too expensive. But workers call the cut petty when compared to the company's ballooning revenues.

Labatt said the allotment for existing retirees would be cut in half in 2018 and cut off completely in 2019.

"I just think it's nickel-and-diming of our retirees that put in a lot of work for many, many years," said local union president Jim Stirr. "In the cost of doing business, it's such a small, small thing."

Labatt, a formerly Canadian beermaker, is now owned by Belgium-based global super-producer Anheuser-Busch InBev. That's a publicly traded company that owns more than 400 beer brands worldwide and reported $55 billion in revenue in 2015 alone.

"The reason for the change relates to the rising overall cost of maintaining a full benefits package, including health care coverage for retirees," Labatt vice-president Lindsay King wrote in a letter to employees dated Oct. 28.

"A recent comprehensive review of all the cost management options has led us to ...More info on site
