Scientific Digest


What is the influence of hard resins on the reactions in beer during storage? This was the question of this Japanese research team. For this work the compositional changes of hard resins were investigated using a beer aging model. The hard resins contained a series of alpha-acid oxides. Among them, 4'-hydroxyallohumulinones proved to be unstable during beer storage. In conclusion these researchers were able to show that compositional changes in the hard resins derived from stored hops that occur in beer during storage are attributed mainly to the proton-catalyzed cyclization reaction of 4'-hydroxyallohumulinones. Novel polycyclic compounds, namely, scorpiohumulinols and dicyclohumulinols have been identified and shown to be stable relative to their precursors. Still it is unclear what the sensory consequences of these changes are; this need to be investigated.
