Scientific Digest


This was basically a summary of trials done by a German research team. They used the hop variety Comet in dry hopping three different beer batch sizes: 17L (keg), 8 hl, and 140 hl (CCTs) at an addition rate of 1,47 ml hop oil/hl or 100g of hops/hl. Temporary circulation was used for a homogenized yield of aroma transfer. Analytical methods and tasting impressions showed significant differences in various descriptors. The small scale trial showed more fruitiness than the others. The mass-transfer rates of the hop aromatic oils to the beer clearly depend on the scale of the trials. In particular, the mass-transfer rates of myrcene and linalool differ between the scales. Correlations of analytical results with the tasting results showed that the tasters were able to detect the measured differences in the mass-transfer rates of volatile hop compounds. Therefore, brewers cannot necessarily expect to achieve similar aroma impressions when scaling up laboratory- scale trials to industrial-scale trials.

Brewery news Russia: Russians developing new taste for alcohol-free beer
Russians are among the biggest drinkers of alcohol in the world, yet are developing a new taste for alcohol-free beer, which could help save a brewing industry that has stalled under government initiatives to discourage drinking, Reuters reported on March 30.

Sales of zero-alcohol beer jumped 12 percent last year even as the broader Russian market shrank by 2 percent, according to research firm Nielsen, extending a 40 percent slide in beer sales since the government tightened regulations in 2008.

Anheuser Busch InBev plans to promote the alcohol-free version of its Bud brand as a sponsor of soccer's FIFA World Cup when Russia hosts it next year. Carlsberg's Russian unit Baltika, which has the largest share of Russia's alcohol-free beer market, said this month it was making new investments in zero-strength beer.

The trend, say people in the industry, is being driven by a move towards healthier lifestyles among Russian consumers, nudged by government measures that include restrictions on alcohol sales and tougher penalties for drunk-driving.

"This market is absolutely undeveloped in Russia. We plan to expand our range, we want more," said Dmitry Shpakov, head of AB InBev's Russian business, which markets alcohol-free versions of its international Bud, Stella Artois and Hoegaarden brands ...More info on site

Barley news India: States of Haryana and Rajasthan could now start growing malting barley
Till a decade ago, the barley that farmers grew in semi-arid Haryana and Rajasthan states due to water scarcity would mostly be used as animal feed. Now, with international beer manufacturers keen to source barley locally, these farmers could see their coffers swelling, IANS reported on March 31.

"Our annual requirement of barley grain is about 15,000 tonnes, of which just 1,000 tonnes is procured locally and the rest is imported. We can fulfil our requirement by encouraging barely cultivation in India. We have found the climate in this region (Haryana, Rajasthan) suitable for malt-grade grain," Pedro Aidar, President of Business Unit India of Belgium-based AB InBev, told IANS.

To this end, the company, which owns the iconic beer brand Budweiser, recently held a grand event for farmers in Gurugram -- a satellite town of the national capital -- promising them good returns if they opted for contract farming for cultivating malt-grade barley.

Under contract farming, a grower agrees to provide a pre-decided quantity of a specific agricultural product.

According to the Indian Institute of Wheat & Barley Research (IIWBR), barley could become a cash crop in arid and semi-arid areas, especially in Haryana and Rajasthan, if farmers succeed in producing standard quality malt-grain.
