Scientific Digest


This is a large research field and studies to look into it are only starting. Our Team looked into hop aroma of dry hopped beers using two different yeast strains (Califorina Ale and German Koelsch yeasts) and two different hop varieties (US Cascade and Hallertau MittelfrUEh). Dry hopping was done on an equal hop oil equivalent (4ml/hl) after 3 days of fermentation. Our results show that hops are a main source of 3MH although malt also delivers this thiol into beer. The concentration of 4MMP was mainly dependent on the hop variety. Beers brewed with Cascade showed a concentration whereas beers brewed with Hallertau Mittelfrueh or unhopped beers had lower concentrations or no 4MMP was detected. The results suggest that the California Ale Yeast has a higher ability to release monoterpene alcohols from precursors. The California Ale beer with Cascade had higher levels of geraniol and citronellol and was described as more citrusy, The higher levels of 4MMP in the beers made with Cascade hops also showed higher intensities for "red berries" in the sensory profiling. Our results show that hop variety has a stronger influence than yeast on the levels of 4MMP. Higher levels of linalool in beers made with HHA also match the sensory description of more intense floral flavour.

Brewery news Cameroon: Société anonyme des brasseries du Cameroon reports 65.6% decline in net revenue in fiscal 2017
Société anonyme des brasseries du Cameroon (SABC), local subsidiary of Castel group, informs that in the 2017 fiscal year its net result was CFA21.93 billion up by 65.6% from the CFA13.25 billion in 2016, the Business in Cameroon reported on August 3.

SABC said this performance was achieved despite the complex operating environment and the continuous tax burden. The company explained that the economic crisis reduced households' purchasing power and fraudulent beer imports (from neighbouring countries) led to unfair competition in the market.

The company's exports sales dropped by 9.9% during the period under review.

As far as the tax burden is concerned, the brewery informs that, “despite a decrease of the taxes paid, their average burden in the group's operating cost was above 64% during 2015-2017 against an average of 45% between 2011 and 2014".

By December 31, 2017, SABC's turnover was CFA334.9 billion, down by 1% on a year on year basis.

Brewery news USA: MillerCoors ceases production of Two Hats after just six months
After just six months, MillerCoors has pulled the plug on Two Hats, a light beer brand that was targeted at 21- to 24-year-old consumers, Brewbound reported on August 7.

The company announced the decision to cease production of the beer, which will remain on retail shelves until early 2019, in a letter to employees and wholesalers on August 6.

The news comes less than a week after Molson Coors Brewing Company, reported second-quarter U.S. revenue and depletions declines of 3.1 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively. During a call with investors and analysts, Molson Coors executives discussed negative Coors Light trends, which ultimately factored into the decision to eliminate the Two Hats brand, according to MillerCoors vice president of national craft and innovation, Bryan Ferschinger, and president of sales and distributor operations Kevin Doyle.

“[R]ight now we simply cannot get to profitable growth without significant improvement in Coors Light and without gaining a bigger piece of above premium,” they wrote in a memo. “Therefore, we need to focus resources against Coors Light, further build momentum on Miller Lite, and foster our above-premium brands like Arnold Palmer Spiked and Sol.”

Ferschinger and Doyle added that the company will also remain focused on other economy brands, such ...More info on site

Barley news Canada & Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia stops buying Canadian wheat, barley
Saudi Arabia’s main state wheat buying agency has told grains exporters it will no longer buy Canadian wheat and barley in its international tenders, European traders said on August 7, as a diplomatic dispute between the two countries escalates, Reuters reports.

Traders said they had received an official notice from the Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) about its decision.

Canada on August 6 refused to back down in its defense of human rights after Saudi Arabia froze new trade and investment and expelled the Canadian ambassador in retaliation for Ottawa’s call to free arrested Saudi civil society activists.

“As of Tuesday August 7, 2018, Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) can no longer accept milling wheat or feed barley cargoes of Canadian origin to be supplied,” a copy of the notice seen by Reuters said.

One European trader said it was not clear if the decision involved only new purchases or delivery of previously agreed contracts. “But I would not deliver Canadian grains to Saudi Arabia now, even on previous contracts,” the trader added.

Another trader said: “This is to me clearly part of the diplomatic dispute between Saudi Arabia and Canada, there is no other reason.”

Winnipeg-based grain trader G3 said it was continuing with business as normal. ...More info on site

Whisky news USA: American whiskies and tequila drive growth for Beam Suntory in H1 2018
American whiskies and tequila drove growth for Beam Suntory in the U.S. in the six months through June, representing the first half of the company’s fiscal year, the Shanken News Daily reported on August 7.

In the U.S., Beam Suntory’s sales were up by mid-single-digits on an organic basis in the first half, with Bourbons like Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, and Basil Hayden’s leading the way. Sauza Tequila, in particular its higher-priced Hornitos offering, also contributed to the sales rise.

In control states, Beam Suntory’s volume was up 4.9% overall in the six months through June, with growth led by Jim Beam (+7.2%), Maker’s Mark (+9.5%), and Sauza (+11%). Among other key brands in control states, DeKuyper liqueurs were down 5.5%, but Pinnacle vodka—which has been in decline the past few years—rebounded with 2.9% progress in the first half. According to Impact Databank, Jim Beam was up 6.5% to 4.9 million cases in the U.S. in 2017 (including flavors), while Maker’s Mark grew 4.7% to 1.6 million cases, and Sauza rose 10.7% to just under 2.5 million cases, driven by Hornitos, which posted 12% growth to 810,000 cases.

Whisky news South Africa: Scotch Whisky Association registers 'Scotch' as certification trademark in South Africa
The Scotch Whisky Association has successfully registered 'Scotch' as a certification trademark in South Africa, the Insider reported on August 6.

The move is a huge boost to malt exports as South Africa is the seventh largest whisky market by volume.

According to the association, exports to the African nation increased by more than 20 per cent in 2017 with nearly 100 bottles shipped every minute - and exports earning the UK £139 every second.

The SWA said the legal protection of Scotch was vital to the industry's continued export success - with South Africa joining more than 100 other countries where Scotch has been granted legal protection.

SWA chief executive Karen Betts said: "The registration of the ‘Scotch Whisky’ certification trademark in South Africa is a milestone for Scotland’s national drink in our largest export market in Africa, and one of the largest in the world.

“This registration offers Scotch Whisky a greater degree of legal protection and will allow us to prosecute rogue traders who seek to cash-in on the heritage, craft and quality of genuine Scotch.

“Scotch Whisky – the UK’s largest food and drink export – is growing in popularity in South Africa. The legal protection of Scotch is another step towards ...More info on site
