Scientific Digest


That is what German Engineers are currently doing (anybody surprised?). A very novel concept is called Omium, working without a lauter tun but four rotary discs that split wort in different fractions for different processes. This involves rethinking the isomerization process, as this system does not work with a conventional boil kettle. Initial results with isomerisation yields were presented in this work. This process has very a good chance to overcome the inherent isomerization inefficiencies of regular brewhouses.

Brewery news Zimbabwe: AB InBev yet to receive US$70 mln Delta dividends
Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) — the world’s largest brewer — is yet to receive a total US$70 million in dividends from its Delta Corporation investment owing to delays by the local central bank to settle international payments due to the prevailing chronic liquidity crunch and cash crisis, the Zimbabwe Independent reported on July 13.

Delta is 40% owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest beer maker based in Leuven, Belgium.

Zimbabwe is currently facing crippling shortages of hard currency that has seen banks defer foreign payments by as much as six months. Ordinarily, the repatriation of foreign exchange for securities related transactions is given top preference on the central bank’s list for the allocation of foreign currency.

“The situation has not improved at all, we have over US$70 million due to foreign shareholders. We are focusing on funding imported raw materials,” Delta company secretary Alex Makamure told businessdigest this week. Delta has since declared another interim dividend of US0,02 cents per share, amounting to US$25,2 million.

As of February, the country had a backlog of US$164 million for transactions conducted on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE). The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe last year said it would establish a US$5 million revolving fund to facilitate ...More info on site

Brewery news Sri Lanka: Increased taxes on alcohol make leading glass bottle manufacturer turn to overseas markets
Sri Lankan glass bottle manufacturer, Piramal Glass Ceylon Plc, is turning to overseas markets as local sales fall due to increased taxes on alcohol, a company official said.

“The management has tried its best to channel the extra capacity towards the export market to bridge the gap due to the loss of domestic volumes,” Piramal Glass Ceylon (PGC) Chairman Vijay Shah said in the company's annual report.

While local sales of glass bottles fell, export revenue of PGC has increased 77 percent to 2.1 billion rupees in 2017/18, Shah said.

“The export to US has grown by over 150 percent, Australia by 72 percent and a six-fold increase in the Canadian markets,” he said.

The firm is also entering into Malaysia, Africa, Vietnam and Myanmar.

PGC last year completed a 3 billion rupee upgrade of its furnaces, which increased production capacity by 20 percent to 300 metric tonnes per day.

Shah said that the production capacity taken up by the local market has fallen below 70 percent in the last financial year, compared to the normal levels of over 75 percent.

The local market contributed 4.7 billion rupees to PGC’s revenue in 2017/18, which was a 16 percent fall compared to a year earlier.

“This was mainly contributed ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Brewers increasing production anticipating hot weather this summer
Air conditioner makers and breweries in Japan are increasing their production, anticipating extremely hot weather this summer, The Japan News reported on July 13.

The Japan Meteorological Agency expects the average temperature in the coming month to become higher than in the average year in the Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku regions.

Daikin Industries Ltd. raised this month’s production of air conditioners for sale in Japan by 10 percent from its initial plan.

Production at rival Mitsubishi Electric Corp. continues at full capacity in line with its plan to increase shipments by 10 percent in the fiscal first half ending in September from a year before.

A Daikin official said that demand temporarily slowed due to the recent heavy rain that hit western Japan but will grow if the sky clears up.

“The weather is likely to be extremely hot in the three-day weekend from Saturday, so we expect sales to rise,” said a Mitsubishi Electric official.

Kirin Brewery Co., a unit of Kirin Holdings Co., intends to increase the output of low-priced “third segment” quasi-beer products in July and August by 40 percent from a year earlier and that of overall beer products including “happoshu” low-malt beer-like beverages by 10 percent.

Brewery news Australia: Carlton and United Breweries to add to Great Northern’s brewing capacity
A continuing increase in sales for Great Northern beer has seen Carlton and United Breweries (CUB) make the decision to add to the beer’s brewing capacity, The Shout reported on July 13.

Originally brewed in Queensland for Queenslanders, the ‘Beer from up Here’ will now also be brewed at CUB’s Abbotsford brewery in Victoria as the brewer looks to meet demand, especially after the decision to make Great Northern Original available nationwide.

“Eight years after the first Great Northern rolled out of our Queensland brewery, and with Great Northern Original now available outside Queensland, we’ve seen massive growth in Great Northern all across Australia,” said Sales Manager, Mick McKeown.

“From 16 July we’ll be brewing Original and Super Crisp at CUB’s Abbotsford brewery in Victoria as well as up here, so we can deliver the freshest possible beer to Australian beer lovers wherever they are.

“All of the Original and Super Crisp for Queensland and the NT will continue to be brewed up here in Queensland, the home of Great Northern.

“But because demand for Great Northern down south is so strong, it makes sense to also brew Great Northern closer to these expanding markets.”

McKeown added that the success of Great Northern was proof positive ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Canada’s barley exports to China expected to reach new heights this season
Canada is a relatively small but growing exporter of barley. Historically shipped to the United States and Japan as an alternative livestock feed ingredient to corn or for malting purposes, exports to the United States were steady on consistent demand and logistical advantages, USDA said in their July report.

Just in five years, Canada's export pattern has been shifted significantly. Once the largest destination, the United States is now seeing less of Canada's barley coming across the border. Over the last several years, border-adjacent states such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota have seen the largest drop in barley shipments. Canada’s exports to Japan have fallen precipitously as well.

In the place of the United States and Japan, China has emerged as the top destination. China's total imports of barley have risen dramatically over the last half-decade, as there are no import quotas or biotech related restrictions. While China’s strong appetite for feed barley will be met primarily by Australian supplies, demand for the price-competitive Canadian barley is likely to continue as well. Canada’s exports for the Oct-May period to China have already exceeded the total volume shipped in the entire 2016/17. A larger expected Canadian barley crop in 2018/19, coupled with ...More info on site
