Scientific Digest


This is a complex question but worth being explored. In a study, German researchers tested two different yeast strains (German ale yeast vs US ale yeast) using an identical hopping regime for late and dry hopping (during primary fermentation) with varieties US Cascade and German Hallertau Mittelfrueh. Comprehensive sensory evaluation and aroma analytics showed that the sum of terpenols was independent from the sensory intensity for floral and citrus. The sum of esters correlated well with the intensity of sweet fruit flavours, and higher amounts of 4MMP correlated well with red berry flavor intensity. The final analysis found that the yeast strain can have a significant influence on dry hop aroma.

Brewery news USA & Mexico: Constellation Brands moving forward with plans to build a brewery in Mexico despite opposition
Plans by a U.S. company to construct a state-of-the-art brewery in the Baja California capital of Mexicali are moving forward — despite opposition of a group of local farmers and the cancellation of a state aqueduct project to supply water to the future facility, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported on July 19.

A spokesman for Constellation Brands, which supplies Mexican-made Corona and Modelo beers to the U.S. market, said on July 19 that the company is building its own water delivery system to the plant, located south of Mexicali off the road the San Felipe.

The project, set to launch operations in late 2019, represents an investment of more than $1 billion. Though endorsed by the Baja California state government, the project has been fiercely opposed by a group of Mexicali farmers who say the water is earmarked for agricultural use, and should not be diverted to industry.

The group, Comité Ciudadano de Defensa del Agua en Baja California, claims that the water targeted for Constellation Brands would have come from an aquifer that is overdrawn. “The aquifer needs to recover before these investments can be approved,” said Rigoberto Campos, the committee’s leader.

Constellation Brands said it is undeterred by the cancellation of the ...More info on site

Brewery news South Africa: Government planning to tighten beer legislation
South Africa’s government wants to tighten the screws on the production and sale of malt and sorghum beer, including traditional African beer, Eyewitness News reported on July 19.

It’s planning to make amendments to the Liquor Products Bill that are intended to make it easier to prosecute those who add contaminants to home-brewed beer.

Fermented cane sugar products marketed as sales, will also be regulated.

It’s been a year since the government first mooted amendments to the Liquor Product Act that will tighten control over alcohol products, their composition and properties.

Currently, the sale of ale is unregulated, something that is set to change.

Now there will be a definition for beer, traditional beer and other fermented beverages, giving the Department of Health and the SAPS more clarity on what products are covered by legislation.

The Medical Research Council’s Charles Parry says that the legislation is a step in the right direction.

“This particular legislation won’t necessarily get to the heart of most of the problems in South Africa which are industrially produced malt beer which is being heavily marketed.”

The amendments also prescribe the process for producing beer, including traditional African beer.

Brewery news Nigeria: Craft brewer Bature Brewery seeking to expand and grab market share from Heineken and Diageo
From pale ale with tangs of passion fruit and mango to a heady stout with 10 percent alcohol, a pioneering craft brewer in Nigeria is seeking to expand and grab more of a market dominated by Heineken and Diageo, Reuters reported on July 20.

Bature Brewery has faced a slog to launch the first commercial products from its microbrewery tucked behind a burger joint in the capital, seeking to gain a foothold - albeit a small one - in Africa's second biggest beer market.

It has had to navigate Nigeria's Byzantine bureaucracy to secure a license, install cables and a generator to deal with frequent blackouts and raise financing to import equipment and ingredients while the naira currency plunged.

But the three expatriate founders of Bature, who want to turn a passion for home brewing into commercial success, have been spurred on by an enthusiastic reception for their beers and encouraged by growth prospects in a nation of some 190 million.

Nigerians drink 16 million hectolitres of beer a year, which is half as much as South Africans - the continent's biggest beer market - even though Nigeria has a population that is more than three times the size.

"Having Nigerians taste our beer and ...More info on site

Brewery news Latvia: Craft brewer Uzavas Alus to invest EUR 2 mln in expansion this year
Latvian micro-brewery Uzavas Alus plans to invest EUR 2 million in development this year, the company's co-owner and lone board member Uldis Pumpurs told LETA.

He said that the investments will be made to expand the company's warehouses, as well as purchase new equipment, like, for example, for fermentation equipment. Pumpurs said that the investment project is planned to be implemented already this year, thus also increasing beer production volumes. After the investment project is implemented, the brewery hopes to increase production volumes by about one-fourth of current volumes. The company is also planning on introducing new beer bottles with new labels, which will be circulated in the market within the next month. He said that the company's sales volumes have also seen an substantial increase this year, compared to the previous one, and expressed hope that this positive trend will continue. Pumpurs said that the company has started exports to Great Britain, and that it also exports to Estonia, and a bit to Finland and Russia as well. He hopes that export volumes to Finland will also rise this year. Uzavas Alus operated with EUR 3.214 million in turnover and EUR 18,519 in profit last year.
