Beer Testing Information

Beer should ONLY be beer

Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in the world.  Beer is typically brewed from three basic ingredients: water, a starch source brewer’s yeast, and a flavoring agent such as hops. Many varieties of beer result from differences in these ingredients, the additives used, and the brewing process. Thermo Scientific instruments help in testing the quality, consistency and purity of the final product.

On-demand webinar: Automated Malt Analysis using Discrete Analyzers

Learn about new automated methods in malt analysis, with Aaron McLeod of Hartwick College, Center for Craft Food and Beverage, USA. Discrete analyzer technology offers faster, reproducible results with less sample and reagent use. We will explain experiences compared to the standard methods and will show repeatability and method comparison results.

Solutions for the Complete Brewing Process

Isohumulones form approximately 80% of the typical bitterness of beer. Their antimicrobial effect leads to a sterile beverage, their tensioactive character stabilizes the foam, and they have a major influence on the general flavor, smell, and smoothness of beer.

Quality Control & Testing for Crafting your Best Brews

As a brewer, you use both art and science to serve your customers safe, fresh beers with great character. Your business depends on quality, consistency, and flavor – which requires precision, efficiency and expertise. Learn how Thermo Scientific can support your quality testing with an unmatched combination of durable equipment, purchasing convenience and solid end-to-end customer service.

Streamlining the Test Process in a German Beer Production Facility

Radeberger Group uses only the highest quality ingredients, such as, hops and malt, allowing them to maintain their standards and produce the best beers. In fact, they have received numerous awards that provide evidence of the excellence and consistency of their brands.

Quality, Consistency, Efficiency – Helping Microbreweries Streamline Their Process

In 1887 Murphy and Son Limited was established by Albert John Murphy as a supplier of brewing components. While developing his products, Murphy realized the importance of formulating water treatment techniques that could be used to complement the specific characteristics of a beer. 

The specific aroma of beer is predominantly controlled by ingredients derived from hop, in particular the exact pattern of isohumulones. The BeerNHop solution is based on HPLC and provides an easy tool to accurately determine the isohumulone profile in the final product and in raw material for a systematic approach of innovative flavors and qualities that can make the difference.
