Scientific Digest


In dry hopping it is all about extracting the flavours from the hop particles. German researchers closely examined particle size during dry hopping, as the process of pellet disintegration of very important. Fast swelling hop pellets with small particle size distribution are seen as ideal for dry hopping. Swelling velocity was found to be both temperature and variety independent. The researchers also found that the swelling volume is higher in low alpha varieties. As sedimentation of particles happens quickly, agitation is suggested for better extraction. They also found the lower particle size distribution of pellets is beneficial in this context compared to the properties of hop powder prior to pelletization. These insights should help to make dry hopping more efficient!

Brewery news China & Taiwan: Taiwan's Kuomingtang Party claims ownership of Tsingtao Brewery
Taiwan's Kuomingtang (KMT) Party is aiming to retake Tsingtao Brewery, one of China's biggest beer makers, from the Chinese mainland with recently presented archival ownership documents to prove its claim, China.org.cn reported on March 1st.

Speaking at a press conference on Feb. 17, Chiu Da-chan, director of KMT's administration and management committee, argued that the KMT was not empty handed when it came to Taiwan after the civil war with the Communist Party of China.

Archival documents discovered in Taiwan last year can purportedly prove that the Chiloo Industries, KMT's earliest property, owns Tsingtao Brewery and used to operate a rubber plant and a flour mill, he explained.

Chiu also called on the "Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee" to retake the assets from the Chinese mainland.

Taiwan media also cited KMT insiders that the rubber plant, also owned by Chiloo Industries, has been developed into Bridgestone, the world's largest tire and rubber company.

Brewery news Thailand: Craft beer wave lapping at Thailand’s shores
The global craft beer wave is lapping at Thailand's shores, igniting a debate over strict rules that limit market access and brand independent brewers as outlaws, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on February 27.

The Thai beer market is dominated by Boon Rawd Brewery and Thai Beverage, the brewers behind the Singha and Chang brands. Restaurants and bars that serve craft beer and other alternatives are sprouting up around the country, but meeting increasingly diverse consumer tastes has its pitfalls.

One man serving up distinctive suds is Piek Pipatnapon, owner of the Golden Coins Taproom. The craft beer bar, nestled among restaurants in Bangkok's Ekkamai neighborhood, opened at the end of last year. Crowds start forming around an outdoor counter at about 6 p.m., when the bar opens. Six beers are on tap.

A 22-year-old Thai university student who was drinking alone said the beers are a little pricey, but the unique flavors make it worthwhile to come back once or twice a week. A 40-something British tourist was just happy to sample something other than Singha and Chang, for a change.

Piek said craft beer started to catch on in Thailand a few years ago. His solution for getting around the liquor law ...More info on site

Brewery news Thailand: ThaiBev launches the latest version of its premium beer Federbrau
Thai Beverage Group has launched the latest version of its German-inspired premium beer Federbrau, The Nation reported on February 27.

Edmond Neo Kim Soon, chief executive of ThaiBev’s Beer Group, said the premium beer trend in Thailand would continue to grow.

According to AC Nielson’s research on premium product consumption in Southeast Asia, there has been a 24 per cent increase in the consumption of premium foods and beverages in Thailand.

Consequently, ThaiBev said brands and products had to adjust to cater to different levels of consumer needs for better products and experiences.

It said the new Federbrau had adjusted its flavour profile and overall design to meet international brand standards to reach out to the rising demand for premium and quality products.

It said the beer had new packaging that showcased the PSL bottle label and the new and modern sleek cans while the new logo design was being shown throughout all communication channels.

“Federbrau represents the authentic German premium beer flavour with a unique taste,” Soon said. “With more young premium beer consumers’ seeking distinctive taste and products to express their premium identity, Federbrau is able to fulfil the rising demand.

“We have introduced Federbrau into the premium beer market as we ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: Exporters finding solid demand for Australian barley
Exporters appear to be finding solid demand for Australian barley, the Stock & Land reported on February 28.

This comes little more than a week after ABARES dramatically raised its estimate of last season’s harvest to a record 13.4 million tonnes.

Strong exporter demand for barley has seen feed barley prices into Geelong climb by A$10 a tonne from the lows of mid-January to A$164 last week. Barley exports in containers from Victoria have rocketed in recent months. Monthly Port of Melbourne data reveals 48,071 tonnes of barley was shipped in January, up from 34,200 tonnes in December and a monthly average of less than 10,000 tonnes for most of 2016.

China has returned as a major barley buyer. It imported 561,000 tonnes of Australian barley in January – the largest monthly imports by China in two years and third-largest ever.
